Blades of Lysse
"Big" Sal Umber is the leader of the Blades of Lysse and the adoptive brother of Kioni Umber. He and his comrades found themselves in Vanna after their latest assignment as bodyguards and ended up participating in the Battle of Vanna.
Originally from a settlement outside Myridia, he and his adoptive sister Kioni Umber found Ragnar Daenyathos Jaeger after the Cataclysm and nursed him back to health. Travelling westward to Remon they met with Garrel Isen in a small town near the Aison border named Lysse. Garrel asked for their aid in helping defeat a group of bandits who were terrorizing Garrel's hometown Lysse. The four of them hatched a plan to drive away the bandits, then unite the townspeople to deal with them for good.
Utilizing Garrel's tactics and Ragnar's skill, the bandits withdrew from the town after a gruelling twelve hour fight. Kioni spoke to the townspeople and used her magic skills to help restore their faith in each other after weeding out those who wanted to keep the bandits in power.
The bandits returned the next day with their full force and their giant serpent. Sal's strength and courage came to the fore as he slew the serpent, while Garrel and Ragnar organised the people to drive the bandits away for good. That day the people of Lysse hailed them as heroes and named them the Lysse Four.
The idea of the Blades of Lysse was originally Ragnar's as the townspeople wanted to follow them on their journey westward. He claimed they would resemble "a wandering army." Sal polished the idea into the organisation that became known as the Blades of Lysse.
Big Sal and Ragnar travelled with some Blades members around Libaterra and were offered a job to work as bodyguards for Sarquil merchants. They accepted and accompanied the merchants to Vanna. However, the Northern Horde besieged the city soon after, and Sal and his comrades ended up helping the Grand Alliance in defending the city.

The Point of No Return
After a long journey, Big Sal and his men reached Alent with the Alliance's army and the Sarquil refugees. Exhausted and suffering from low morale while camping outside the city, Sal decided to let his men have some fun by making them play dice poker and arrange a drinking game. During these festivities Big Sal got to know a traveller named Rain.
