* CompleteMonster: Acting Commander of Five Hundred Neshok is an Arcanan Intelligence officer who gleefully uses his position and the excuse of "ensuring the security of the expeditionary force" to justify brutally beating and torturing Sharonian prisoners and killing other prisoners in cold blood. In one case, he kills two Sharonian prisoners to single out a Voice among them (the latter of which he kills just because he ''lied'' to Neshok) and, though he knows full well that Voices cannot transmit through portals and verifies this with a lie-detecting spell, then shoots the Voice in question.
