"Always at your side, my lady."
Royster is a well kept gruff old campaigner with a handlebar moustache and salt and pepper hair, and is rarely seen without his arms and armor.
An aged soldier, longtime retainer of the Smythees, and old friend of Iron Bert – Royster is secretly ashamed that he was not with Captain Smythee on his last fateful expedition. He maintains discipline and training among his small corps of troops even on this backwater island.
It is abundantly clear that he would give his life to protect Lady Agasta Smythee.
