Rider Gesca is a lieutenant of Sealmaster Hetwar, and commands the small troop that rides with Ingrey kin Wolfcliff to investigate Prince Boleso's death. He has dull blond hair and is nearly ten years older than Ingrey. He is not well-educated but is able to write brief reports as needed. He is bribed by Earl Horseriver to report on the events surrounding Boleso's death.
Gesca was with Hetwar before Ingrey joined his service, and tells tales of Ingrey's fighting ability. He claims to have made the recommendation to Hetwar to make Ingrey's position permanent.
