Mantual is a tribesman from Seanchan. He is into his middle years and stocky with dark brown eyes and a narrow beard.
He attached himself years ago to Gamel Loune and has been over-protective of him since then. Loune is sure that Mantual would stay even if he stopped paying him. Karede senses him to be close kin to Ajimbura, in spirit, but not in blood.
Mantual serves the Banner-General's kaf, all the while eyeing Karede.
