Gordak the Merciless

Gordak, or the Merciless, as he was known, was a powerful, northern Goblin war-chief, who began the terrible War of Sorrows in the year 409/3, by leading a goblin invasion of the Dwarf-realm of Chokar. In the year 436/3, Gordak killed Vholnir the Tireless and defeated his dwarven army at the Battle of the Fiery Gorge. Gordak then went on to lay siege to the dwarven city of Arkan Feyr in 470/3.

In the year 592/3, Gordak was killed by Gorn the Defiant and the siege of Arkan Feyr was broken. His goblin army was routed and all five of his sons were slain. But the War of Sorrows continued through his grandsire; Grumak the Skullcrusher.
