Taking the place of his father, Lord Even, as Grand Master after he was killed in the Pegasus Civil War, Gentler has struggled the past eight years to attain the respect that his father once did. While Gentler lead his men brilliantly in the Battle of Juhno Crossing, many lords felt that he was not deserving of the to be given the title of Grand Master and that it was simply given to him to pay homage to his father who was killed by the Dragon Gigalith at the retaking of Sky City. Gentler has been tasked with trying to bring the outlaw faction know as the Shadow Fox to justice after they attempted to assassinate Daerunt two months ago, a task that he has had little success with. He is a man of high honor and moral standing and many believe that is the reason he is unable to apprehend these outlaws. They are more cunning and calculating than most and moving within the confines of doing what is "right" sometimes prevents Gentler from doing what is "needed"
