His family's lands lost to the Great Khan's armies, Phantash has joined the ranks of the disposed nobles who either cling to the Emperor's court like a remora or attempt to earn favor in battle. Refusing to serve a low birth, Phantash has vowed allegiance to Raga Dasra and marches at the head of one of the regiments determined to reclaim his lost lands and his family's position.

He is a descendant of Carin Durani-Allik, The Wanderer. 

His sigil is a horned gryphon on a field of deepest indigo.
