Neir is one of the Twelve Crusaders, possesses the title of Axe Knight, is the original wielder of the Helswath, and is the founder of the dukedom of Dozel Castle. Neir's known blood descendents are: Langobalt, Danann, Lex, Brian, Johan, and Johalva.
- Like Tordo, Neir is the one of the only bloodlines without any known holders of Major blood at the end of the game. However its possible that Brian may have produced a descendent before his death (or, with some prior and very careful planning, he can be averted and remain unfought). Alternatively, if Johan or Johalva is Larcei's lover and Lex is Larcei's father, the children of that relationship could hold Major Neir.
- Neir's current descendants do not appear to have a good reputation; Lewyn was most critical of them and called them a disgrace to the Twelve Crusaders. Though it is slightly odd that Lewyn is only seen singling out Neir's descendants, when the Tordo and Fala families were responsible for just as many crimes.
