In the Sleep of Death
Haphaestion, Commander of the Cavalry
Haphaestion was Prion’s Commander of the Cavalry, a prestigious position earned solely through merit. His fame spread throughout the land, and he earned his title as the Swift Hammer, for the speed at which his cavalry would fall on the flanks of exposed units.
His weakness remains his inability to intrigue, he was undone by betrayals in the early years of the Conflict, going from the premiere military of the Diadochi to one of the weakest. He has maintained his position through the conflict by leaning more and more heavily on the powers of the Solars of the White Tower, keeping himself a step ahead of further disasters. Even with his vastly depleted forces, he still commands respect and fear, and his armies rally while the rest of the kingdoms bleed.
