Lhesh Haruuc Shaarat'kor is a legendary hobgoblin general of the Rhukaan Taash (razor crown) clan who in 969 YK led a revolt against his employers, carving out a homeland for his people.
Before this, he was a mercenary in the employ of House Deneith. Leading up to his goblin revolution, he was able to ally himself with enough goblin tribes and strategically place goblin mercenaries, whose loyalty were to him, not their employers, around the Breland-Cyre border, that when the time was right, noone could stop him. Claiming large territories in eastern Breland and southern Cyre, the nation of Darguun was born, and Haruuc claimed the title of lhesh, meaning 'high warlord.' Since the end of the Last War, he has had his hands full, trying to convince foreign leaders that his people desire peace with the Five Nations, while trying to hold together a kingdom that was only united by promises of conquest.
