Gotari Ishtari was not actually a newbie! With various chats with Avatars from militaries who knew him, and group chats, Gotari Ishtari was actually Bren Weezles, a reckless person! He may have been a fool, but he was in a way, clever... He also had a rivalry with many that made it hard to do something, like make an army without rivals attacking him. It is not known much about armies he was in, but it is known he was in ASR for a bit, as Bren Weezles. It's unknown why Unforgiven Destiny and Gotari Ishtari are enemies.
He was in [ASH] which closed around December.
