“Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”
Eskandar za-Tavani is the brother of Zafar za-Farahani’s late lover, Javad za-Tavani. Eskandar used his brother’s death as a motivator to serve as a spy for the Butterfly, keeping tabs on the movements of the government through his father, the Lord of Servitude.
Eskandar developed feelings for Misae of Sipaku during the Pathseekers’ time in Bratana and took her out on a date. When Misae learned Eskandar had been withholding information from her, she chose to instead pursue Taegon, a decision that seemed to upset Eskandar. Misae has even remarked that Eskandar took the rejection harder than he should have, considering the lack of a history between the two.
Eskandar was last seen at the celebration following the victory of the Battle of Broken Chains. He disappeared mysteriously shortly thereafter.
