SoD cover This article or section is about elements from the game Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear.
Video games are considered canon unless they contradict content in some other Forgotten Realms publication.

Arktash was an orc chieftain of the Il-Khan tribe that made its home in the Spine of the World, around the 14th century DR.[1]


While a mighty warrior in their own right, Arktash obtained their position as leader of the Il-Khan tribe through guile, not strength. Arktash was an intelligent and shrewd leader.[1]


Less than a year into Arktash's reign, the orc chieftain was slain by rivals. These usurpers felt Arktash had shown disrespect by not claiming power through force.[1]


As a child, the blackguard Dorn Il-Khan greatly admired Arktash. He later used the fallen chieftain's story as a cautionary tale in conversation with the Bhaalspawn known as Gorion's Ward.[1]


Arktash's gender is not defined in Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, as the game files simply alter the orc chieftain's gender to match that of the player character.[1]
