Turgut lays claim to being one of the few hobgoblin captains whose warband has been undefeated since its inception. His leadership was instrumental in claiming numerous cities throughout modern Darguun during the goblinoid revolt and betrayal of Cyre.
Although he is a renowned war leader, his claim to being a descendant of the mightiest Dhakaani leaders of the ancient empire are rarely heeded by his contemporaries. With the end of the Last War and the recognition of Darguun in the Treaty of Thronehold, Turgut seems to be pushing towards conflict with the weakened Five Nations, and a return to the days of a Goblin Empire ruling Khorvaire.
Turgut has many enemies among the Valenar, and wears a string of elven ears he has made from those who have challenged him.
