The Legend of Mor'du


Mor'du was the eldest son of a king, and the heir to the throne. He is noted for being strong. Then his father grew ill. On his deathbed he said the kingdom would be separated into four peices, for his four sons, so each could use his power to make the Kingdom stand. But Mor'du, feeling betrayed by his father, declared war, because he wanted the whole kingdom. He went to the Witch and gave her his ring in exchange for a potion that would make him stronger than ten men. He called his brothers under a false truce and then, to their protests, drank the potion she gave him. He turned into a black bear. Instead of fixing the problem by mending the bond, he slaughtered his brothers. His army attacked him, thinking he was a bear, but Mor'du killed most of them and chased away the others.




  • In Temple Run: Brave, the Shadow Hunter outfit is named after him.
  • Mor'du is French for "bitten".
