Events: Sun Rune War
Born: IS 417
A soldier from the Island Nations, Yahr has the special assignment of finding and turning in Rune shells. Although they cannot be created anymore following the downfall of the Kooluk Empire, ones made before then are still live ammunition.
Originally, Yahr worked alone, but Nelis volunteered for this assignment and became his subordinate. Yahr states that he knows Nelis’s ancestor Pablo helped create the rune cannon.
Yahr and Nelis were in Nirva when they met the Prince and Bernadette. They ask for a ride on the Elemark, but during the voyage, they see a rune shell fire and sail towards it. As it turns out, the cannon was used as a signal flare by pirates. Their ship was destroyed by monsters while they search for the cannon, and wanted to catch attention somehow. The monsters show up to attack the Prince’s ship, but the Rune cannon makes quick work of them. Yahr and the Prince agree to destroy the cannon, with the lie that the shells were too damaged to be of use and were disposed of. Grateful for the aid, Yahr decides to join the Prince’s army, with another lie stating that other shells may have drifted to Falena.
In his free time, Yahr enjoys watching Chisato’s puppet shows. But he never stops thinking about the danger of Rune shells, especially when Sialeeds gains the Twilight Rune, and Marscal demonstrates the Sun Rune’s power. After the war, Yahr returns to the Island Nations. There, he and Nelis destroy all the Rune shells that the Obel Maritime Council has and flee, with Admiral Egan hot on their trail. - Matt 620 (article), Basel (image)
How to Recruit: After the coronation ceremony/HQ upgrade (combined scene), return there with Bernadette and look at the cannons on the Lino En Kuldes. Afterwards, head into the Inn and talk with Yahr and Nelis. Take the ship back to Estrise, and the two will join. Offer to check out the Rune shell, and go through the ship graveyard. Suggest use of the rune cannon to defeat the monster during the quest, and choose to destroy the Rune Cannon, and, back at Nirva Island, Yahr and Nelis will join.
