Lhesh Haruuc

This hobgoblin has spent most of his life trying to keep the warring tribes and sects of goblin culture together, dreaming of a new Dhakaani Empire. From humble roots, Haruuc rose to become the Lhesh (loosely translated as “king” or “high warlord”) of the new nation, Darguun.

When Haruuc was young, he heard the tale of Jhazaal Dhakaan. At first, he was skeptical of the idea of a powerful and well-run empire consisting mostly of goblins. He had lived his childhood in squalor, and every goblin he had seen was either dead by the hands of the other races or under their control, one way or another. Like most goblins, he resented this, but accepted it as the fate of his race. The night he heard the story of the bard-queen, he fell asleep in front of the fire on the hard earth. When he awoke, he remembered having a profound vision: he saw himself seated at the top of a mountain, a flaming crown on his head, overlooking an endless horizon of goblin troops. From that day, Haruuc had more drive than any goblin of his time. He would intimidate, backstab, invade, and subjugate anyone he had to get to the top of that mountain.

He took the full title of Lhesh Haruuc Sharaat’kor (High Warlord Haruuc of the Scarlet Blade). Khar Mar’bost (the Red House) serves as his palace in the center of Rhukaan Draal.
