Hairym Clyntahn was a Charisian citizen and an officer of the Imperial Charisian Army.

He was born in the Kingdom of Chisholm, and joined the army as a young man; he was frequently teased for having the same last name as the much-hated Zhaspahr Clyntahn, Grand Inquisitor of the Church of God Awaiting. He wanted to become a cavalryman, but did not have the abilities for it. Instead, he was given command of a support platoon with the 1st Battalion, 3rd Regiment.

Holding the rank of Lieutenant, he led his platoon into the Sylmahn Gap to help stage an ambush on the invasion forces of the Army of God. (MTAT)
