Though he came from humble beginnings, Yamun Khahan was a natural leader who possessed both charisma and strong ambition. He was a cunning, brilliant military commander. Yamun's mother, Bayalun was a useful asset on his councils as she was well-versed in Shou ways.
Once he became khan of the Hoekun, Yamun organized the tribe into a small but efficient fighting force. Through sheer force, and aided allies—the Basymits—Yamun was able to subvert the Jamaqua, Dalat, and several other tribes of the Tuigan, increasing the size of his army along the way.
Yamun was eventually elected as the Khahan of the Tuigan. He then proceeded to conquer the Naican, Commani, and Oigur clans. Yamun chose to invite clans to join him with the hopes of preventing future blood feuds and wasting valuable lives that could be used to swell his expanding army.
The remaining tribes of the Hordelands either joined Yamun Khahan or were crushed by his armies in battle until all the tribes of the Endless Wastes were united under a single banner called the Grand Army of the Tuigan.
