Trimack was the Commander General of the First File, the ring of steel around the Lord Rahl. General Trimack was the highest-ranking officer while on the palace grounds, although some others outranked him on the battlefield. He was ordered by Zedd not to let any one into the Garden of Life except himself and Richard, an order he took very seriously. Sadly he failed twice, the first time he and his men were up against Sisters of the Dark and the second time when the Chainfire spell was on Kahlan so he and his men did not remember ever seeing them. Other than that he as was very effective at his job. He was very happy to serve Richard, a Lord Rahl who was not crazy and cared for his people.
