Avus Gula was the Lord Marshal of the armies of the Faloran Republic. After the assassination of Consul Harmon Dermeticus, reputedly at the joint command of Avus Gula and the Inquisition, it was Avus Gula who was elevated to the newly established office of First Citizen, replacing that of Consul. Rising as equals along with him were Pietro Gori and Admiral Jack Timbale.
It was the Consul Dermeticus who wanted peace, and it was Gula who spearheaded the military invasion of Varantium during the Eclipse. He escaped after the campaign's crushing defeat outside the walls of Falor.
Gula was married to Elliana.
