Baloth Bloodtusk was an Orc hero and leader of the Savage Sons. He was called the Wild Boar; No king ever tamed him, and he fought for his own reasons. Baloth played a crucial role during the Siege of Orsinium in 1E 950. Initially, he did not wish to take part in the war or join King Golkarr. During the siege, King Joile of Daggerfall sent him a letter in which proposed he join him instead. Although King Joile was allied with Gaiden Shinji, he had already planned to betray him and invade Hammerfell after having destroyed Orsinium. He and his Reachman general, Mercedene, manipulated Baloth Bloodtusk and Shinji into having a duel over Orsinium's fate. During the duel, Mercedene ordered Joile's archers to kill both combatants, effectively removing the most powerful warriors of both Orsinium and the Order of Diagna for Joile. After their death, both warriors were buried in Honor's Rest in Wrothgar.
