He was a ruthless and canny ruler. His style was to have secret meetings with all the city's councils and clans in order to keep their members guessing what he was up to, and he handed out favors out of the blue. He let it be known that he would use any trick to maintain his grip on power. Horgar was known to employ assassins like the Empty-Scabbard Killers through third parties to take care of potential troublemakers. Thanks to this strategy, he focused all the factions on war with others and make them unable to damage the king.
At some point during his reign, Horgar's brother Valtagar was captured and held to ransom by the drow houses of Menzoberranzan. Horgar was forced to pay a king's ransom to free his brother, and as a result declared Valtagar and his followers to be calassabrak, and banished them from Gracklstugh.
