Mauhulakh became the leader of this stronghold after he had slain his father, the previous chief, in single combat as he was too old and weak to continue ruling the tribe. Mauhulakh states that one day his own son will challenge and defeat him when his time comes. He explains that Orcs in the strongholds have this custom in order to ensure that the leader is a strong one.
Being the chief, he is the only Orc in Narzulbur who is allowed to have wives and to produce offspring with them. He is the most respected member in this Orc community.
Mauhulakh has two children, the blacksmith Dushnamub and his sister Urog, whom he fathered with one of his wives. This wife died in childbirth. The two were raised by the spiritual leader of the stronghold, Bolar, and Chief Mauhulakh's sister, Yatul.
If Mauhulakh is asked for work, he will challenge the Dragonborn to a brawl with a bet of 100 .
