, or Primus Imperator
, is the title of the supreme ruler of the Charr
race. The first, and only accepted, Khan-Ur unified the Charr sometime before 100 BE
and led the unified Charr into conquest from east of the Blazeridge Mountains
into modern Charr Homelands
. He was assassinated shortly after the humans established Ascalon, keeping the Charr from mounting a counter-attack against those they saw as invaders. The Khan-Ur's four children formed the four High Legions
, leading them as Imperators
. His weapon, the Claw of the Khan-Ur
, has been used as a symbol for all future would-be Khan-Urs.
Although some Charr have subsequently claimed the title, none have been able to hold it for more than a few years.
- The first Khan-Ur and the title are a combination of references to Genghis Khan and the Biblical character Ur, father of Eliphal (one of King David's "Mighty Men"). The name Ur is sometimes translated to mean "fire".
