Durg Lordes is the leader of the Yellow Eye wick tribe. He is frequently outspoken in the United Tribes, urging his fellow wicks to protest the bad treatment they receive at the hands of the galdori. Lordes is a proponent of the unification of tribes to form a solid, central government.
Durg Lordes' political views have led to a conflict with Durg Auros, the leader of Red Crow, who finds his opinions on unification to be dangerous and radical. The two have been arguing for several months, and tension between the two tribes is building, though outright violence has not yet broken out.
