Jasaray is an antagonist that appears in the first two instalments of the Rigante series, "Sword in the Storm" and Midnight Falcon. He is somewhat based on Julius Caeser, and his campaigns against the Keltoi mirror Caeser's conquest of the Gauls. He is described as a thin, bookish man, lacking any skill at arms whatsoever but possessed of great intelligence and bravery.

He is the leader of the army of Stone. He was initially only a quartermaster general, but took command when his superior officers were killed in one of Stone's civil wars. He demonstrated incredible tactical and logistical genius, winning the civil war and completely re-organizing the armies of Stone into an unstoppable juggernaut. Under his leadership the armies of Stone conquer, destroy, and enslave all those around them. These successes boost Jasaray to the heights of political power and bring him into conflict with the western Keltoi tribes - and ultimately with the Rigante across the water.
