Vakrez Noavek is the Shotet man in charge of training all soldiers. He is described as tall, handsome, old enough to have wrinkles at the corners of his eyes, and with a deep scar shaped like a half circle etched into one cheek. He is married to Malan. He is some relation to the Noavek family. While Malan is empathetic, Vakrez is implied to be quite hard-hearted, able to be swayed mostly by his husband and no one else.
