Torakor (also known as The Gladiator from his constellation in the sky) is a Blue Grarrl, and one of the 12 heroes of Altador. Before he joined Altador he was a general in a corrupt ruler's army, but turned against him when ordered to attack a defenseless village.

Plot summaries[edit]

Torakor (using the name Torak) posed as the knight in Meridell who taught Tormund how to fight. Tormund returns the favour towards the end of the game when he frees Torakor from The Darkest Faerie's spell.

Altador Plot[edit]

Main article: Altador Plot

On April 12th, 2006 the Colosseum was opened to the public. Behind a random one of the arches stood an orange Grarrl. He will lead the user to the Punch Club - a parody of the movie Fight Club - where three bowls of punch are present on the table. The user had to click on each bowl in a particular combination then click on the golden goblet. This combination was random for everyone. When the correct combination was ascertained, clicking on the goblet would lead to a page showing a closer image of the vessel. Clicking on the symbol of the goblet would reveal The Gladiator constellation.

Book of Ages - Chapter 7, The Gladiator[edit]

Torakor's Book of Ages portrait
Physical strength, coupled with a strong sense of virtue, is often lacking in this world. One who steps forward and demonstrates both will quickly become a legend. Such is the tale of Torakor, the Gladiator.

In the old days, armies often collided, at a great cost of money and lives. Sometimes, to spare those costs, each army would send forth its greatest warrior and let a one-on-one battle decide the victor. A Grarrl named Torakor was the strongest warrior in one such army, and he won many victories for his commanding general. With Torakor faithfully at his side, the general thought his army to be invincible, and decided to expand his territories. Torakor was troubled by this, but who was he to question his leader?

One day, the army came to a small village the general wanted to conquer. His huge army surrounded the village, and he shouted a challenge to the townsfolk. "Who will face my champion? Send forth your greatest warrior, or bow before me!" All was silent until a quivering Shoyru stepped forward, armed with only a garden hoe. The army burst into laughter--except Torakor. He approached the Shoyru, then turned to face his own army.

"I will fight for them," Torakor stated. "Step forth, any who think they can best me in battle."

His general shouted, enraged. "Eliminate this traitor, at once!"

Mortified by the order to attack one of their own--thousands against one, no less--the warriors lost confidence in the general's leadership, just as Torakor had. One by one, the soldiers joined the Grarrl, facing outward from the village. Torakor, through strength of virtue alone, had won his own army.

Word spread quickly of a mighty army that protected villages instead of sacking them. It wasn't long before Torakor received a letter, informing him that a new city could use an army such as his. Torakor gladly accepted.
