Segos DeFaye turned out to be more of a soldier than of a merchant. He relied on other people to carry on with the administration of the gentry, for he was too busy waging war on the enemies of Yliakum: namely, the beasts coming from the Stone Labyrinths. He soon became a captain of the Sunshine Squadron, until the boredom got the worst of him, and made him resign.
The new Lord DeFaye went back home, finally, and took the reins of the gentry with the same energy, if not more, that his father had. He married young, and had many sons and daughters, Jocas DeFaye I being the heir to the gentry. Being the soldier he was, Segos DeFaye demanded authorisation for a militia, which he put to serve the Octarchy, and contributed to the security in the capital of the Far Ground. It is said that the control he had over the Winch in the Third Level made it impossible to sneak a single grain of rice through the guards.
