Appearance and Personality
Tur'geis Am'saag is a very tall & powerfully built drowolath male with volcanic blue eyes and long, red dyed hair with a braid on each side of his head. He has a soft spot for the Marauders' pet feral Aisha as well as his trusted wolf mount, Bodark. Tur'geis is very devoted to his mate Die'tra Am'saag Sarghress and will always fight by her side.
A foreign mercenary, he fights for the Val'Sarghress for glory and money rather than ideological reasons. His personality is boisterous and humorous, coupled with a strong streak of bravado as well as a barbaric code of honor. Despite his brutish appearance, he is capable of using his brains as much as his brawn. Tur'geis loves a good fight in addition to the typical downtime activities of barbarians and mercenaries everywhere: drinking and gambling.
Battle For Darya Lake
Tur'geis made his entrance alongside Laj'vati Sullisin'rune during the Battle of Darya Lake as they were pursuing Kery'awa Xyrrai'zestu Sharen. After challenging Kery'awa to a fight, Tur'geis was able to soundly defeat her with some help from his nearby allies, breaking her thumbs and giving her a concussion during the fight. However, Oiloss'lin Xyrrai'zestu Sharen arrived with several demonic summons and rescued Kery'awa. Tur'geis and Bodark could be seen in the ensuing battle helping Ariel and her infantry defeat the Vel'Sharen forces outside the castle.
After the castle at Darya Lake was taken by the Sarghress, Tur'geis was relaxing with his close friends Zan'nah Sarghress and Min'issya in the castle's dining room, showing them the loot and slave he had acquired during the battle to take the castle. Ariel took offense at Tur'geis' looting of his fallen foes and the castle, and asked that he hand them over. Tur'geis grew angered at Ariel for daring to deny him looting privileges and boldly challenged the heir to a duel; Ariel cleverly sidestepped the experienced warrior's demand by asking the slave if she wanted to join the Sarghress. The slave decided to take her chances in the Sarghress war machine and followed Ariel out of the kitchen.
As could be determined from Tur'geis' promise of swift and brutal violence to Durlyn Mae'yukir Sarghress' request to hand the rest of his loot over, Tur'geis retained his spoils after the battle. After meeting up with his old friends in the Marauders for a post-battle celebration, Tur'geis was reassigned with the legions fighting the Beldrobbaen advance in the north.
Later on Tur'geis would be the commander of the Highland Raider squad that leads Ariel and her friends to the colony of Ys, currently under attack from Hermiones. After a relaxing evening spent shopping for clothes for Riz'riia, drinking, and lovemaking with his mate Die'tra Am'saag Sarghress, Tur'geis aided in helping Ariel, Faen'arae Val'Sullisin'rune, and Chirinide Val'Kyorl'solenurn defeat Hermione invaders.
Morning after the fires
Downstairs in the Sarghress house, Tur'geis expresses his desire to not go after the airship, citing his reasons for why it’s a bad idea. Ash'arion and Nuru'lara guessed correctly that Ariel tried hard to convince Tur'geis to go after the airship, to which Tur'geis states that the only thing Ariel got from Quain'tana is her stubbornness. After Chiri’s disastrous attempt at cooking, Tur'geis states that he’d still eat it. Ariel and Faen arrive downstairs and she asks if he changed his mind about the airship to which he said no. Ariel decides to leave the house in frustration and Tur'geis criticises her actions. He says after she left that Ariel is going out of her way to antagonize her. He greets Olarae'inilani and is exasperated when she mentions going after the airship and states they will stay in Ys until further orders before being surprised when Syrak and Olarae mention something he did not know about.
Eviction of Sarghress out of Ys
After hearing the news, Nuru'lara and Tur'geis confront the council. Ys council member Kane'ohe tells the Sarghress to stand down or leave Ys. This angers Tur'geis but Nuru calms him down and asks Kane what does she mean by “Stand down”. Kane clarifies that the Sarghress members stationed there are to renounce their clan to join the commoner population of Ys to which Tur'geis says no and Kane replies that they are then to leave the colony. Tur'geis says the Hermionnes will return to burn everything and Nuru states that Ys needs them but Kane'ohe declares that the Sarghress presence is a greater threat to the welfare of Ys then the goblin hordes. This once again angers Tur'geis but Nuru once again calms him down. Kane offers to reward the individuals who helped the previous day and chose to become members of the colony by allowing them to stay in the Sarghress house and providing them and their families with financial support for a year to which Tur'geis replies by showing off the part of his hair that was dyed red and declares that it was red with the blood of those who underestimate the Sarghress and threatens Kane. Kane tells them to “fuck off” and return to the cavern they conquered. Nuru'lara and Tur'geis then leave to the Sarghress house and tell the others what happened.
During a meeting, after hearing Sar'nel’s and Nuru'lara’s suspicions regarding the timing of their eviction from Ys and the airship, Tur'geis states that despite that, he’s reporting back to Chel.
As Tur'geis, Die'tra, Olarae and Zan'nah head back to Chel, Die'tra tries to lift Tur'geis’ spirits by stating that Faen is with them.
Sarghress Civil War
Tur'geis and Die'tra greeted Ariel as she arrived at the Sarghress sparring grounds for her bout with Quain'tana. At Die'tra's prodding, Tur'geis held out a hand to Ariel, offering an apology for their previous disagreements. The heir readily accepted, stating that they were all from the same clan and had fought together, and that was what counted. Tur'geis then advised her that a plan was forming to assault Felde; when Ariel asked if they would be joining the battle, he declined, informing her that he and Die'tra had decided to settle down and start a family now that the District War had ended.
Days later, after the healing session to try to cure Quain'tana's festering facial wound failed, Tur'geis and Die'tra were amongst the crowd of supporters that attempted to stand up for the berserk Ill'haress. After Quain'tana was fatally wounded in her last attempt to kill Suu'be, Tur'geis and several other loyalists caught her as she fell.
Outside of Moonless Age
Tur'geis first appeared in Relic Hunters as a weapons specialist Highland Raider in the Marauders' squad.
