General Otakar was the Minister of War and Defence of the Faloran Republic. He maintained his office when Avus Gula seized power, having always being one of his more vocal supporters. Otakar was a leader known for his fair hand and fatherly countenance, and he championed Renal Sistorian and his right to prove himself to the Republic.
He was one of the first casualties in the pitched battle upon the Ediren Hills outside the walls of ancient Falor during the Eclipse campaign. This led to Renal Sistorian taking up his baton and position in the army before the end of the siege.
