Thurghom was a powerful druid, having the powers and abilities typical of such persons, including the ability to change his appearance and form. The most powerful spell he could cast was sunbeam. His strength and his wisdom were his greatest assets.
Thrughom guarded a sinkhole that he discovered as a youth, believing it to be a sacred site. He worshiped from a distance, never touching the stone pillars surrounding the hole. Occasionally, he would offer a living sacrifice to the "great spirit" within by tossing a creature into the pit.
As a young orcling, Thurghom discovered a sinkhole in the ice surrounded by standing stones, and he heard a mysterious voice speak to him from the hole. The voice charged him with guarding it. Thurghom did so, growing up to believe that his druidic powers had been granted him by a great spirit living within the hole. Thurghom was exiled from his tribe on the Sea of Moving Ice and dedicated his life to guarding the sacred site with his only companion, Bahgkôm.
