Alkemas Neshaa; The Persian, The Zoroastrian, the Dracograth.
Neshaa joined Alexander's campaign at Susan, during the Night of One Thousand Weddings. Neshaa himself remained unwed that night.
He was one of the first to become Dracograth, together with Kalliades, Korae, Lysander, and the acerbic Iapetus.
Neshaa is an odd choice for a soldier, he is a devoted Zoroastrian and, thus, a pacifist. He explains it;
"protecting one's friends and the innocent from evil is the ultimate Good Work. To stay passive while ubiquitous men and their works flourish serve Ahiriham more than any act of justifiable violence..."
Neshaa is also the only man in History who has not only sermonised (cheeked, according to Kalliades) to a dragon and lived to tell the take upon he also won Her respect and love.
Though chalk and cheese to all appearances, he and Kalliades are the deepest of friends. They stand guard together, laugh together, play jokes on the other Dracograth together, and enjoy Lupernikes' famous lamb stew together, usually in the company of their fellow 'conspirators' (though they only conspire to make sure first Alexander's 'malady' then his disappearance are kept secret).
They have many adventures in Korae's company before reuniting with first Lupernikes tgen Alexander and Sham on The Dragon's Crown in a far-flung corner of the galaxy. Sham greeting him,as, always, as "that big ginger dreamer" and received a joyous hug in reply.
