King Tanusk - Last Of The Sorcerer Kings
Real Name: Tamusk
King Tamusk was the last of the sorcerer kings, who ruled Eternia about a thousands of years ago. Tamusk originated from a more barbaric Eternia where strength determined a leader, whose enemies were revealed to be an evil faction known as the Silcons. Arriving in present-day Eternia with a lot of confused aggression, Tamusk inadvertently learned how to be a better king. King Randor taught him that intelligence and kindness now rule, and He-Man taught Tamusk that he only fights when he must, and that each time he hopes it is the last time. History books state that Tamusk turned away from his warrior ways late in life, possibly due to the comments of He-Man and King Randor. A statue of Tamusk resides in the Hall of Kings in the Royal Palace, showing that he is a treasured part of the royal lineage. As a sorcerer, King Tamusk is bestowed with vast magical powers, which he will often generate through his club.
