"He has been one of Maxxor's closest advisors for years."
Najarin, The Last Stand, Part 2

Tarterek is an OverWorld creature resembling a turtle walking upright. (If you were looking for his brainwashed form, please see Tartarek Psi Overloader)

Character Origins

Tartarek lives in Kiru City where he serves the OverWorld as both sage and strategist. But this doesn’t mean that Tartarek is one to shrink from battle. Despite the fact that age is beginning to take its toll on him, this courageous elder of the OverWorld can always be found in the center of the action whenever he’s needed. In addition to his powerful Attacks, his Mugical abilities are also an invaluable asset on the battlefield. During the M'arrillian invasion he fought to protect the Riverlands. He failed and was brainwashed then used to spy on the Tribal Alliance.


Looking at Tartarek, it is obvious why he is counted as one of the OverWorld Heroes. He emanates Courage, Wisdom and tranquility. His skin is hard and leathery, and he carries a great shell on his back, which provides protection in battle. During The M'arrillian invasion he wore a blue robe with a hood.

Connections, Affiliations, Loyalties and Allies

Tartarek is a loyal advisor to Maxxor and all of the OverWorlders. He may be well aquainted with the human Tartawrecker. During the final part of the M'arrillian invasion he was forced into becoming loyal to the M'arrillians.

The Mugic; Carnivore's Keening, was created by Overworld Muges specifically to help him protect the Riverlands, although he failed, the Mugic is still a symbol of Tartarek's courage and loyalty, and a valuable asset in battle.
