Kor the Magnificent

Kor the Magnificent was an ancient hero of the Vaas people, who united all ten tribes of the Nolar Clan in the late Third Age.

Many sages believe Kor's existence only mythical, but the Vaas people of the Nolar Clan strongly believe he actually existed. The great northern mountain range at the head of the Vryne River is named for him, and every Vaas child knows his legendary feat of cleaving a tall mountain into two halves with only his axe.

Legend has it; Kor became enraged at the Gods of Corwyn, and swung his axe from atop the tallest mountain in the world, splitting it asunder, the two halves of mountain exists today as Kor’s Twins.

It is also well known that Kor himself was so fiercely independent, he refused the right of a Elanthir sword as a gift from the Council of Sorcerë, and deprived his people of that honor. Although many Wildfolk alive today will argue that the "honor" of such a gift was in fact "slavery."

Kor's most famous saying, "Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women." — Attributed to his Chronicler, Akiro.
