Foster was one of the hundreds of soldiers of the Tower Guard during the Battle of Charm in The Black Company.

The Black Company[]

During the vigorous, comprehensive preparations for the Battle of Charm, Tower Guards assembled ballistae on the third earthen tier, and calculated fire lanes and survivability. As they did so, one of their ballistae was knocked down from the tier and fired its missile upward, through Croaker's left arm. A Guard captain successfully applied a tourniquet to his arm, per his instructions, and demanded that Foster, one of the nearby subordinate Guardsmen, tell him what had happened. Foster explained what he saw, but did not understand that this was one of several failed attempts on Croaker's life orchestrated by Soulcatcher.

Foster is not mentioned again in the Annals, but the odds that he survived the epic bloodbath at Charm are grim.
