Varen Malavhan was a mercenary recruiter in Westgate.[1]


Varen was the chief recruiting and propaganda officer and treasurer of the Mercenaries' Guild of Westgate. He always accompanied the troops in the field. The good reputation of the Guild was mostly due to Varen's work. He had a networks of bards, fighters, and priests to help him recruit, who received a bounty for each recruit.[1]


Once, a ballad he wrote, "The Battle of the Yellow Eye Orcs", was a triumph of propaganda but it also annoyed the Urdo family, whose symbol was a yellow eye.[1]
