Personal history

Heston ver Umeret was born into a long line of proud Dregian soldiers. His father and the general who led him were good friends. When he grew up and became a soldier himself, his competence in battle and his impressive charisma quickly lifted him through the ranks until he replaced the general who had led his father and had led him when the man retired. With this position, he won several key victories against Augustia that arguably saved the country and prevented Augustian victory. However, when he sustained an injury to his chest that prevented him from further service in the army, he went home to Denimos, where he was elected the next Provincial, replacing the man who had held that title previously.
