Wythers was born in Gallwood Outpost in a long-line of men. Wythers was a wily child and loved solving cases. He played with Elinor Chadwick when they were children, but they drifted apart late in life. As an adult, Wythers became the Gallwood Outpost Gate Marshal. He then married a washerwoman. They had two sons, eldest Jaelon and youngest Garret.
Years later, Wythers became a widow after a Prime Order soldier tried to seduce his wife. His wife declined the soldier's advances and her throat was slit as a result, under the guise of "treason". This could have been when Wythers' hatred of the Prime Order started.
One day, Wythers' oldest son Jaelon stole a case of wine from the quartermasters to share with Garret but was caught right away. Wythers sent him to the lowest mineshaft as punishment. It was only meant to be for a day or two, however Jaelon was surrounded by the criminals Wythers had sentenced, who recognized him as Wythers' son. Within hours of his first day, he was beaten to death by the criminals. Garret never forgave Wythers for sending Jaelon to his death and this drove a wedge between the pair.
Marshal Wythers is a man of strong moral code. As an acting marshal and therefore the only police force of the garrison, he is the one delivering justice in the garrison. However, he can be overenthusiastic, as shown by his condemning his son to a mine where he lost his life, and by his conduct in Talon's case. He also manifests deep regret after killing Gwynn's servant girl.
Even though he is tough and a strong warrior, he loves his son. He is strangely devoted to his lover The Mistress, and loyal to his silent hand and friend. At the same time though, he does not shy from blackmailing Gwynn - but only to hold on to his position at the same time. He can be cruel and misguided and easily upset over not being able to kill someone. Wythers respects the chain of command despite his deep-rooted hatred for the prime order.
Marshal Wythers is the father of Garret Spears and another son, who unfortunately died in the mines. He sentenced his son to work in the mines for a minor crime, to teach him about justice. However, he did not realize that condemning a son of a marshal into the part of a mine where are kept all the criminals he sent there was not a good idea, and his son was beaten to death. His lover is The Mistress - the innkeeper. He discusses with her the situation of the city and receives advice from her. He is doing her favors occasionally - like executing a drug dealer she wanted dead. However, the said drug dealer killed one of the Mistresses' sons, so marshal is also upholding his duty when disposing of him, so he is not breaking his sense of duty and justice.
