The Nar were the elite warrior cast of the city of Gea-Xle. They were the descendants of members of the Black Company who resided in Gea-Xle for nearly sixty years. They remained true to the Company doctrine of the time, even though the Company itself forgot it.
A sub-cult of the Nar engaged in gruesome murders and cannibalism, including Mogaba, because they believed it to be the true nature and purpose of the Black Company.
When the Black Company arrived at Gea-Xle, members of the Nar under their most elite member, Mogaba, pleaded with Croaker to allow them to join the Company on its pilgrimage home. 32 of the most skilled warriors joined the Company and remained with them until their deaths.
