General Takar was originally a General from Hammerfell who fought against the Empire until Titus Mede won him over, supposedly through personal combat. However, Mazgar questioned that version of the story. As of 4E 40 he's one of Mede's most trusted Generals. He led an assault against Umbriel west of the Imperial City with around five thousand men, which mainly consisted of mounted infantry and mages, along eight siege engines that were used to assault Umbriel. His assault failed and got defeated by Umbriel, after which the General retreated.
