From Guild Wars Wiki
- "This ruined and crumbling city was once the home of King Sahlahjar, the last of his line. Sahlahjar's father had resisted Palawa Joko for years, but with Lord Joko's armies advancing, Sahlahjar gave into his fears and cut a deal with the undead lord. Shortly after, Sahlahjar's citadel was overrun by Joko's undead army. The unlucky king was gutted and his remains animated as Joko's court jester. Sahlahjar remains bitter about this."
