The Serpent Lord gave a few of their Lords the lands sorrounding the ancient ruin city of Kârna as a fief as reward for serving in the Serpent Army.Around the Lands of Kârna they formed a kingdom of their own.

The appearance of the Mahûd seems to be inspired by historical african Zulu and Masai Warriors.
The name Mahûd is derived from actual Hindi "Mahout", "Owner of a work-elefant".
