"Competence on the battlefield is a myth. The side that screws up the least wins, its as simple as that."
- Zyvan.
[Needs Citation]

Lord General Zyvan was a senior officer of the Imperial Guard.[1]


Zyvan was overall commander in several campaigns that included the Valhallan 597th and its regimental Commissar, Ciaphas Cain; these included the campaigns on Gravalax[1], Adumbria, and Periremunda.[Needs Citation] Zyvan would eventually appoint Cain to his personal staff.[1]


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).[Needs Citation]
