Aghul Balai was a member of the Tsu-tsu tribe of the Plain of Horses in the mid–14th century DR. He was a follower and Chung Tao of the Way.


Aghul had studied for many years in Shou Lung to learn the secrets of the Way.

In 1359 DR, Aghul Balai was among the teachers, magical advisors, and agents of Second Empress Bayalun of the Tuigan at Quaraband. Aghul sought to convert Bayalun to the Way. Bayalun briefly introduced him to the lama envoy Koja.
