Black Company Wiki

Ghojarindi Ghoj was the High Priest of the Shadar religion in Taglios when the Black Company first arrived at the city, in Shadow Games. He was the very first of what would become a long line of Taglian cult leaders to make themselves enemies of the Black Company with grim results.

Shadow Games[]

Ghojarindi Ghoj's personal patron was Hada, the Shadar goddess of Death, Destruction, and Corruption. He commanded a subcult, the "Children of Hada", who claimed to dedicate themselves to random and senseless acts of murder and torture, but who victimized only those targeted by Hada's high priest.

In Shadow Games, Ghojarindi Ghoj ordered this subcult to kill Croaker, the foreign leader of the Black Company, who offended him for his Company's efforts to prepare the city for the threat posed by the Shadowmasters. Ghojarindi Ghoj's right-hand man, Jahamaraj Jah, informed on him to Croaker out of gratitude for the physician saving his daughter from appendicitis. Ghoj's six assassins were spotted by Frogface, and they were captured. The Nar impaled all six of them to send a very public message to anyone who would seek to do the Company harm. When Ghojarindi Ghoj fled westward, Croaker had him assassinated by Goblin in "a sudden, dramatic surfeit of boils". Jahamaraj Jah became the leader of the Shadar in Taglios, indebted to the Black Company.
