Nar Trig [d. 88 BG] was a Ginaz Swordmaster and follower of Jool Noret's school, who was later a member of the Cult of Serena. Trig was squat and swarthy, with dark hair, broad shoulders, and powerful muscles.


Early life[]

Trig was a descendant of human settlers who had fled Peridot Colony when it was overrun by thinking machines. His parents were among the settlers who attempted to rebuild the colony, but Nar guided by his hatred for thinking machines, went as a trainee to Ginaz.[1]

While training as a swordmaster he was friend and sparring partner with Istian Goss.

During his graduation ceremony, like other swordmasters, he received a coral disk with the name of his guiding spirit. It was later revealed during his time on Ix that this disk was blank, and he therefore had no guiding spirit.

As a Swordmaster[]

With Goss, his first mission was on Honru, to assist to the rebuilding process. While they were stationed there, three combat meks were found in a sealed storage depot. The two swordmasters disabled them, then Martyrists obliterated their remnants.

In the months after leaving Honru, with the Army of the Jihad, they attacked and boarded two giant Omnius battleships, which they then seized and converted for human use. Other military strikes had been planned but the Omnius Scourge had killed so many soldiers that these had been cancelled. Consequently, the pair of mercenaries spent most of their time in rescue and recovery operations.

On Ix they encountered a mob of Martyrists who salvaged Pulse-swords and other weaponry from the liberation of Ix and the second battle of Ix which they found guided by Saint Serena. They told them they intended to strike Corrin; Nar who viewed the Martyrists' fanaticism reasonable, parted ways with the more reluctant Istian.

In the Cult of Serena[]

In the following years, his dark hair became shot with lines of gray. His rugged features were roughened over the years and a long burn made the left side of his face appear smooth and waxy.

Nar became a part of the Cult of Serena when it absorbed the Martyrists. During the following years he remembered his past training with Chirox. He forged a message asking Istian Goss and Chirox to come to Zimia for honors, but the real reason was to destroy the machine. Istian and Chirox were 'welcomed' not by a formal committee but by the angry mob of the Cultists seeking to purge all the city.

Against Istian's calls to reason, Trig challenged Chirox to a fight. The sensei mek and his former pupil fought together and Nar managed to cut one of his arms. While Chirox initially avoided harming Trig, his words and actions forced Chirox to a decision. Stating that he had only ever killed one human, Jool Noret, and that had been by accident, the mek then decapitated Trig saying: "This is intentional".
