Cho Lu-k'u was a wizard who once lived in Koryo.

Cho Lu-k'u died in the Dang Caverns and cursed its tunnels. This may have led to the evil monsters that lurked there.[speculation][note 1]

Meo Cha heard of this story from his old tutor before around 1350 DR.[1]



  1. The text states only that Cho Lu-k'u cursed the tunnel and it harbors monsters. There is no direct cause-and-effect relation between these statements, but their proximity implies a connection. It also refers only to a single tunnel, but also mentions hundreds of entrances, so this is assumed to be in error and that there are multiple tunnels.
