Yoeli was a Saldaean officer.
He had a lean face, a hooked nose and a set of bushy black eyebrows. He wore a short, trimmed beard.
He took command of Maradon's forces and saved Rodel Ituralde and the rest of his force just before they were wiped out by the Shadowspawn army. He now resides under the Traitor's Banner and looks to the day when he will be executed by the Queen. He visits Lord Vram Torkumen with Ituralde who names him Darkfriend.
Ituralde suggests to Yoeli that the city should be abandoned, but Yoeli convinces him that reinforcements should soon be arriving and to hang tight. Soon part of Maradon's wall is destroyed by enemy Dreadlords. Ituralde starts to teach Yoeli warfare tactics when their forces decimate the leading invading Trollocs in an ambush. He fought bravely after the Shadow's forces entered the city and died valiantly. Davram t'Ghaline Bashere found a few of his soldiers guarding his body.
