Father Rahss Sawal was a priest of the Church of God Awaiting, and the commanding officer of one of the Church's courier ships.
In May of the Year of God 892, his ships was carrying important dispatches from Bishop Executor Thomys to Bishop Executor Wyllys in Eraystor "at all costs". Sawal was told not to expect enemy action in the Eraystor Bay area.
However, the vessel was intercepted by the Royal Charisian Navy schooner HMS Wave. After a warning shot, Sawal's ship struck its colours, under strong disagreement from the vessel's second in command, Brother Tymythy. Although ordered otherwise, Father Sawal felt that sparing the lives of his crew was more important. (BSRA)
