|This page contains spoilers for:||Salamander (Novel)|
Tsu'Gan held the rank of Veteran Sergeant in the Third Company. He holds a bitter grudge towards Dak'ir believing him not to be of a worthy bloodline to be a Salamander and thus constantly refers to him as Ignean in a condescending and provocative manner due to Dak'ir's heritage. He also holds a deep regret over the death of his Captain Kadai during the Stratos Campaign which manifests itself in a dark brooding guilt he attempts to quash by the use of masochistic branding of his body to cleanse the deep guilt with pain and fire. Though absolutely loyal to his Chapter and Company Tsu'Gan began to contemplate overthrowing the new Captain N'keln through a vote of no confidence by attempting to garner support amongst the other sergeants of Third Company who also held his view of the new Captain. But this plan never manifested itself against N'keln as he proved himself a worthy successor to Kadai in the Fires of Battle on Scoria. He was later promoted to First Company for his actions on Scoria and impressing the Fire Drakes Veteran Terminator Sergeant Praetor. He was part of the insertion team, led by Forgefather Vulkan He'stan, whose mission was to recover the Sigil of Vulkan from Chaplain Elysius. He was captured by Dragon Warrior sorcerer Nihilan when his homing beacon was intercepted during a teleportation onto the frigate Firelord.
