Pal Subhir was a tribune from Taglios during the events of Bleak Seasons. He was loyal to the Taglian prince, the Prahbrindrah Drah, and during the Siege of Dejagore, he was in league with Mogaba. Pal Subhir and his Taglian soldiers committed the massacre of two-thirds of the entire Nyueng Bao De Duang pilgrim population (about 1,200 people) in Dejagore. He was killed early in the fighting by Nyueng Bao Path of the Sword warriors. Pal Subhir's actions and the realization that Mogaba was sponsoring him soon led to open fighting between the two splinter factions of the beleagered Black Company: Murgen's Old Crew and Mogaba's desperate Nar faction. His massacre also drove the Nyueng Bao and the Old Crew closer together than before.
