Kor the Magnificent

Kor the Magnificent was an ancient hero of the Vaas people, and the leader who first united them in the late Third Age.

Kor's existence is thought by many to be only legendary, but the Vaas people truly believe he actually existed. The great northern mountain range at the head of the Celenë River is named for him and his two sons. Vaasneesh legend has it that 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 Melanthir 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.
