- Rate - Thane of Varni (David Ajala)
As Thane of the Varni, a warrior tribe and muscle of the Alliance, Rate is a man of strength, honour and courage. Highly intelligent, sometimes terrifying, this Thane is an unquestionably powerful leader of people. A man who can in one breath take a life, but surprisingly, with the next, make you smile with his dry, impromptu wit. When the race for leadership over the Shieldlands presents itself, Rate quickly sets his sights on filling the void over the other Thanes.
