The Fallencairn Valley
The Horned King
Also known as Baphomet, he was a powerful sorcerer capable of channeling otherworldy forces, as well as crushing his enemies in physical combat. In minotaur communities he is a figure of legend similar to the bogeyman of human myth – mostly used to frighten unruly children or as a curse (as in the case of “Baphomet’s balls!” or “The horned one take you!”)
In reality, the most learned scholars (such as Sard) believe that Baphomet was real. He was likely an ancient emperor of the Minotaur empire whose cruelty was legendary, and who was very successful in wars. Some historians believe that he was able to transcend mortality and become a Demigod, though many others believe this to be preposterous.
