Commander Jarod is the commander of the Bengion Occupation Army in Daein, during Begnion's rule over them.
Jarod is first seen killing a Begnion soldier for not catching the Dawn Brigade and later killing three citizens out of the body of citizens that blocked the Begnion soldiers from chasing the Dawn Brigade (They stood down immediately). He answers only to Numida, one of the most powerful senators in Begnion. Once empress Sanaki heard about the situation in Daein, Numida betrayed Jarod, pinning all the blame on Jarod. After hearing this, he decided to make a "last stand" and tried to kill Daein's only hope - Micaiah. However before he strikes, the Black Knight, one of the four riders who served under "Mad King" Ashnard, warps in front of Micaiah, protecting her. Before the Black Knight could kill Jarod, Alder, a firm believer and friend of Jarod's, takes the blow and dies. The Black Knight then refuses to strike at Jarod again, stating that his "sword is not made for killing those who will not raise their weapons". He is killed in Nevassa, in Daein Keep when the Daein Liberation Army takes control over Nevassa back after Jarod remorselessly destroys Nevassa as one last act of defiance.
