Lord General Zyvan was a senior officer of the Imperial Guard.


Zyvan was overall commander in several campaigns that included the Valhallan 597th and its regimental Commissar, Ciaphas Cain. These included the campaigns on Gravalax, Adumbria, and Periremunda.


Ciaphas Cain usually demonstrated a wary attitude towards senior officers (since those that weren't incompetent were all too eager to believe in Cain's heroic reputation and assign him to a particularly dangerous mission), but had tremendous respect for Zyvan, considering him an able strategist who demonstrated a commendable concern for the troops under his command (including Cain himself).
