Gilgarad is a goliath of a man - he makes Hollam seem puny. He is a fighter but very protective of his people. He does not fear to kill although he is Roumanhi and this has created a rift between him and his cousin Tarn. He was a great gladiator and has killed many men.

I wanted a character that, despite his reputation, is measured, calm and patient, even if he isn't warm and hospitable. He is more a representation of ancient times, when the Roumanhis waged wars and did not live in Clans, hence his name is that of one of the royal ancestors so revered in the land.
