Commander of the Imperial Guard on Nova
Melchior Tallaz is a short, round man, standing a mere 5’3". His rotund build, archaic spectacles, and clean-shaved face give him the look of a harmless accountant. In fact, Tallaz was once a storm trooper captain, and the layers of fat his position as marshal have added to his frame conceal a surprising amount of muscle. Tallaz never goes anywhere, even when off duty, without a hotshot las pistol and fighting knife, another legacy of his storm trooper service.
