The other Runelords are legendary mages, immortal psions and dragonslayers. They are as diverse as they are powerful, yet they have one thing in common: They bow before Rurunoth the Hale. —Roone Arretis
Rurunoth is known as the only human Runelord and de facto ruler of Dominion. Historians cannot agree as to whether or not he and the historical figure Rurunoth the Ill, barbed devil and commander of a moderately sized infernal army in the bloody clash at Elsir Vale, are one and the same. Either way, he is commonly cited as the most powerful individual on the continent; though there is little direct evidence of his abilities, even the other Runelords give him a wide berth.
