High Warlord of the Tarcisses
Self styled Warlord. He murdered Lord Erik Garuk and his wife and 2 sleeping children by subverting the house staff to gain access to the royal sleeping chambers. This act was made easier by the fact the old king had issues paying the staff due to his notorious gambling habits, allowing Ruco Zuccah and his cohort of soldiers who were previously under the employ of the recently deceased king to make their move. Once the king was slain the peasants and knights of the land were divided. Once the nobles had been paid or extorted into coercion Ruco Zuccah began to rough up the populace and demand the peasants who were not needed in the fields were taken as slaves to the archeological dig sites for the Proseth Empire. His lust for the artifacts from the former empire clouds all else. He believes once he has obtained enough artifacts to he can use their power to conquer the known world. He has taken several consorts from the local village girls but has no family or long time lovers. He has 2 trusted generals who’s lust for gold rival his own but he uses that to ensure he has their loyalty, Timoah Karaket and Haraj Ennoc. During the War of Zuul Ji he was one of the most decorated generals who’s victories in battle could not easily be counted. However his blood lust in battle was equal to his skill at command, after he conquered a territory he allow his men free reign over the local populace and burned their crops ensuring they would go hungry and could not stage any resistance after his soldiers had moved on. Many of the population of the Zuul Ji territory carry the scars of his acts of atrocity which have begun to fester in the slave excavation camps.
