Tauru is Soruen's father, and a father figure to Rimudo. He is a loyal man and a skilled warrior, and was asked to protect Rimudo from Temudan. Eventually the military caught up to him and he was killed. And so the responsibility to guard the crown prince was passed on to Soruen. Rimudo blamed himself for Tauru's death, and attempted to kill himself over it. Soruen was also very upset, but found it in himself to forgive, save, and continue being Rimudo's Guardian.
