There were many Orcs who were named Fha-korlash, for it was both the title and the adopted name of a Chief of the strange Scara-hai tribe that settled in northern Ithilien, outside the gates of Mordor. (The name means "Great Jaw" in the Orcish tongue.) Every Orc who had held the title had won a a ritual fight against either the past Chief or some other contender. He carried life and death authority over his tribe, although he was still a vassal of the demonic Werewolf, Gaurhir, the High-Chieftain of the Scara-hai. The Fha-korlash wielded the tribal totem, a great cleaver that was often coated with Asgurath poison.
