Uthid has served as a Carja soldier for twenty years: he was a captain during the Red Raids, although his participation was purely out of loyalty to Sun-King Jiran. During the Liberation, the crown prince Itamen and Carja queen Nasadi were smuggled out of Meridian. Believing that Itamen was Jiran's rightful successor, Uthid followed the Shadow Carja to Sunfall.
Uthid retained his rank as a general in the Shadow Carja.
Uthid is merciful and generally righteous; he would give some of his food to starving orphans and personally punish those who hurt the old or the sick.
