Kunyak, also known as the Liberator, is a Barbarian character in Tribes of the East.


Child of a created race, Kunyak boils at the horrific conditions in which his people live. Treated as slaves and viewed as no more "human" than the Wizards' golems, the Orcs cannot tolerate this treatment. Kunyak dreams of something else; of finding a place and building a homeland where Orcs live or die by their own hands, in freedom. He is convinced that the only hope for his people is to make this dream a reality.OffBck

Son of Malathua, the orcish rebel against the wizards, Kunyak is a legendary orc chieftain who fought his way from the Falcon Empire to find an orc village, Kukali, where the orcs settled. Kunyak's strength rose, defeating the "Steel Men" and drove them back to the Empire. Though the knights returned, with Batu's advice, Kunyak found the Cup of Thunder and destroyed the fleet of the Empire, allowing the orcs to form a single state where they could've been free of slavery. Kunyak's power was remembered by all orcs and most battles, if not all, carry in his name.
