Wund was an orc shaman from the tribes of the Sword Mountains in Northwest Faerûn. He was the founder of the Brotherhood of the Scarlet Scourge.[1]


Wund prophesied that on the eve of the Feast of the Moon, red clouds would appear over the mountains. On the date in question, this event actually occurred, and blood flowed down the mountains for three days, causing plagues to spread to the surrounding areas, and causing high casualties, in what was known as the "White Hand of Yutrus." All of the tribal chieftains were wiped out. It was after this event that Wund founded the Brotherhood of the Scarlet Scourge, a monastic order dedicated to spiritually uniting the orcs of the Sword Mountains. Wund crowned Uruth Ukrypt as king and the orcs began driving the trolls out of the mountains.[1]
