Gizhaum Danver De Banzi Haight Gilbear (often shortened to Gizhaum Gilbear) was a high-ranking officer of the Royal Volpone Imperial Guard regiments that served in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade.[1a][2b]


The second son of the Haight Gilbears of Solenhofen on Volpone (the royal house of that world), Gilbear served as a Major in the Royal Volpone 50th and aide/senior-adjutant to General Noches Sturm at the time of the regiment's deployment on Voltemand.[1a]

He was later in charge of a detachment from the Volpone 50th's elite Tenth Brigade assigned to escort Inquisitor Lilith Abfequarn in the course of the Monthax campaign.[1c]

By the time of the Siege of Vervunhive, Gilbear had been promoted to the rank of Colonel, again serving as one of General Sturm's senior officers as part of the Astra Militarum taskforce sent to reinforce Vervunhive against a Chaos invasion.[2a][2b]


Gilbear is nearly two and a half meters tall and described as arrogantly powerful. He has big, blunt, bland features and the languid hooded eyes of the aristocracy. He wore the grey and gold uniform of the Royal Volpone 50th, also known as the the 'Bluebloods'.[1]
