    those who

    The loyalty of those around him was total and would never falter.
    isnt there a "who" needed after "those"?

    thanks

    It would be "who were". It's optional.

    those = who

    were - As the sentence is in the past, we can assume that they "were" around him. It's okay to leave out "were" - be - in this case.
