— Modniir Ulgoth

Ulgoth the Mighty, also known as Modniir Ulgoth, is the tyrannical War King of the Modniir centaur tribe and leader of the Centaur alliance. Driven by his hatred, Ulgoth does not allow dissent within his tribe and is willing to kill any centaur who does not follow his command to eradicate his enemies in Kryta.[1]

Biography[edit]

Early years[edit]

Ulgoth re-united the Modniir tribe nearly 200 years after it was almost brought to extinction by the Ebon Vanguards and norn in the Far Shiverpeaks.[2] He then used the Modniir to dominate the Harathi and Tamini tribes and formed the Centaur alliance to seek revenge on those who had crushed his ancestors and, later, killed his family.

Personal story[edit]

Using the respective strengths of the three centaur tribes to his advantage, Ulgoth and his commanders used the Harathi Hinterlands as a staging ground for their campaign, spreading southeast into the Shiverpeak Mountains and southwest into Kryta, establishing footholds as close to Divinity's Reach as Queensdale. Despite his hatred of humans in particular, the War King was willing to have a mutual non-aggression treaty with Lion's Arch and Lionguard havens throughout Kessex Hills despite the centaurs viewing the land as belonging to the centaur alliance. He used emissaries to keep up diplomatic relations in Triskellion Vale and had them investigate whether Lionguard were smuggling supplies to Seraph while denying rumors of centaurs attacking merchants under Lionguard protection.[3]

The centaurs had a successful campaign at first and reached as close to Divinity's Reach as the Village of Shaemoor in 1325 AE. However, Krytans eventually began pushing the centaurs back and led a counterattack deep into Harathi Hinterlands. Although Ulgoth mocked their efforts as futile, the humans managed to breach War King's Greatcamp to confront him. Ulgoth fought the assault force, proving himself to be a skilled shaman as he summoned Earth Elemental Hands to assist him. The War King was ultimately felled, sending the Modniir into disarray for a time.

Living World Season 3[edit]

In 1330 AE, investigations of Caudecus's Manor revealed that Minister Caudecus had sent Captain Tervelan to kill Ulgoth's family and laid the blame on the Falcon Company to entice the centaurs further into war with Kryta while pinning the blame on Queen Jennah.[4] At the same time, Caudecus had been in communication with Ulgoth and granted a centaur war party passage through Beetletun lands in order to directly assault Shaemoor Garrison in 1325 AE.[5]

I personally ensured the War King's family did not escape with their lives. As we expected, the attack sent the beasts into a rage, and they've begun more aggressive campaigns within Kryta. The evidence we planted should be sufficient to point the blame at Falcon Company. I've enclosed their next patrol route, per your request. I expect my payment now. —Captain Tervelan
  5. ^ Master of Puppets Flea-Bitten Bedfellows: Justiciar, the offering you've made of those responsible for the cowardly attack on our settlement has prompted me to reconsider your proposal. While I remain sceptical of your "White Mantle" and some of your promised intentions should Kryta return to your rule, I agree that the time to act is upon us. You say you can clear the path to Divinity's Reach for my troops, and so I will send one of my High Sages with a warband at twilight tonight. If your claim is true, you will have earned my trust. —Ulgoth the Mighty, War King of the Modniir
