LORE: Moghul Khan – The Axe

22 March, 2018Sannio
It’s a fact that most future Artifact players are not familiar with Dota 2, and that’s why we decided that it would a be a great idea to tell new player about fascinating lore of Dota 2. We’ve already talked about the powerful magician Crystal Maiden, now it’s turn for brutal warrior – Axe!

original

As a grunt in the Army of Red Mist, Mogul Khan set his sights on the rank of Red Mist General. In battle after battle he proved his worth through gory deed. His rise through the ranks was helped by the fact that he never hesitated to decapitate a superior. Through the seven year Campaign of the Thousand Tarns, he distinguished himself in glorious carnage, his star of fame shining ever brighter, while the number of comrades in arms steadily dwindled.

On the night of ultimate victory, Axe declared himself the new Red Mist General, and took on the ultimate title of 'Axe.' But his troops now numbered zero. Of course, many had died in battle, but a significant number had also fallen to Axe's blade. Needless to say, most soldiers now shun his leadership. But this matters not a whit to Axe, who knows that a one-man army is by far the best.

Despite his lust for power, Mogul Khan doesn’t kill other representatives of his race, that could possibly explain why he let Sorla Khan take control of Red Mist army.
