Tallon Zek is known as the Beholder of Battle and the god of strategy. He is a tactical marvel, and will stop at nothing to obtain victory. It is said that it is from he that Rallos Zek
pulled the seeds and gave life to the first orcs
. Tallon was once a mortal orc, but following the events of the Elder Age, which saw the Rallosian Empire invading the Plane of Earth, Tallon, and his twin brother Vallon
, were summoned to the Plane of War to reside with their "father," Rallos Zek. Here, the two brothers battle each other by commanding legions of ogres
known as the Diaku. During the Age of Turmoil
, mortals invaded the Planes of Power seeking Zebuxoruk. On their way, they assaulted Rallos Zek's stronghold, Drunder, within the Plane of War. It was there that Tallon and Vallon defended the Warlord.
Tallon Zek has retained his orc
-like features after ascending to god-hood. In most lore, he is depicted as a grizzled war veteran with white facial hair
, wearing plate mail
, and wielding a longbow
. During the Age of Turmoil
and the invasion of the Planes of Power
, Tallon Zek manifested himself very similarly to the descriptions in lore. Although his hair was not white, he still wielded a powerful bow he used to pick off assaulters of the fortress of Zek.
Tallon Zek is one of many gods
who have yet to return to Norrath
during the Age of Destiny
