From 1615-1625, the Colymar tribe was ruled by Kangharl son of Kallai Rockbuster. Kangharl is best known by his nickname Blackmoor the Rabid, which he gained in a (failed) raid on Delecti’s Castle. He is also known as Korlmhy, which was a family name, as he greatly resembled his grandfather Korlmhy the Priest.
Kangharl was famed as an impetuous warrior, and fought with great heroism during Starbrow’s Rebellion. Kangharl had two sons and a daughter from two different wives. The younger son and daughter were taken as hostages by the Lunar Empire after Starbrow’s Rebellion.
The son of Kallai Rockbuster and Beneva Chan, Kangharl considered his second cousin Leika Ballista to have usurped his birthright. Although a leading figure in Starbrow’s Rebellion, Kangharl soon found common ground with Gordius Silverus, the Chief of Barbarian Affairs for Fazzur Wideread. With Lunar silver and support, he was able to recruit mercenaries and supporters and In 1615 he was able to force Leika into exile.
Kangharl initially tried to rule the Colymar through the Orlanth Rex cult, but he quickly lost the support of the Orlanth priests and the tribal militia (which he rarely summoned after becoming king). By 1618, Kangharl’s main support was the mercenaries he hired, and those from the Lunar slave farms. He also hired mercenaries from the Sun Dome Temple on several occasions. As a result, he was completely dependent on financial support from the Lunar Governor-General. He is thought to have become a lay member of the Seven Mothers in 1615 (before becoming king), and initiated into the Lunar Way in 1619 (which gave him Lunar citizenship).
Blackmor led a Colymar detachment in Lunar service during the invasion of the Holy Country, although was sent back to Sartar at the end of 1619. He was a frequent guest of the Governor-General in Boldhome, and there were rumours that he planned to replace Temertain as Prince.
After Fazzur’s dismissal at the end of 1621, Blackmor spent more of his time in Tatius the Bright’s service than he did in Clearwine. He returned to Clearwine in 1622 and spent the next two years suppressing bandits and preventing the Colymar from joining the Culbrea in rebellion. In 1625, he abandoned Clearwine (after taking hostages) to join Tatius at the New Lunar Temple. Kangharl was devoured when the Brown Dragon awoke at the Dragonrise.
So you can imagine Blackmoor being much like a Balkans chieftain during the rise of the Ottoman Empire. He first fought against them, then decided that it was more advantageous to ally with them.
