High Priest Hangvul is a character in Heroes of Might and Magic V add-ons, Hammers of Fate and Tribes of the East, and in Might & Magic: Heroes VII add-on, Trial by Fire.


A stolid priest of the Deepflame clan, Hangvul has gone to war against the Dark Elves to defend his nation. Though he carries little of his brethren's insensate hatred for his foe, Hangvul will not shirk from the battle and savagery necessary to end the Dark Elf threat.OffBck

Hangvul is a High Priest with a dark past. When the dark elves inhabited the tunnels, he tried to get them out by destroying their sanctuaries of Malassa. This conflict is now known as the War under the Mountains. This was a high price, as their hero, Agbeth, swore revenge. In the end, Agbeth tortured Hangvul and Hangvul lost his left eye and left arm. Though he crafted the body parts using the dwarven metal, his hatred against the dark elves was even stronger.


Hangvul is a Runemage.

For some reason, Hangvul's specialization, which is identical in effect to Erling's Keeper of the Flame, and even uses the same icon, is referred to as Golden Tongue - which is actually Rolf's specialization, and has a very different effect and icon.
