They spawn in Taurethrim Chieftain Temples which can be found in Taurethrim villages in the Far Harad Jungle. They will spawn wearing full armour, with a chieftain helmet on and a silver coin in their hands.
Like all hiring NPCs, they will not attack unless provoked and stay out of fights. When attacked they will defend themselves with a club.
Upon hiring a unit from a chieftain, the player earns the achievement "Obsidian Conquerer".

- The Lion-Men must pay for their crimes. Burn their homes, loot their treasures, and slay their people!
- It is time for war, Person. War against the thieves who stole our Mûmakil.
- A new empire is rising. Will you lead us to victory?
- They burn our trees and steal our Mûmakil. But now, Person, now is the time for revenge.
- My men have a reputation to uphold. Leave the grass-tribes cowering in fear.
- Drive them from their homes with blade and poison and fire! Show those savages our strength!
- My warriors are yours to command.
- War will come to all. Lead my men to victory!
- The power of the jungle will break the strength of mortal men!
- The great Mûmak will lead your stampede against our enemies, Person!
- Show no mercy to those desert snakes!
- Come back another day, Person. You are not worthy yet.
- You are not fit to lead my soldiers, Person.
- Prove your worth in battle, and kill more rats of the plains, and then you might earn our loyalty.
- Show me that you are more than just a peasant, Person.
- Can you even fight? Go and kill some more savages!
- You would bring nothing but weakness to my warriors.
- You, leading my men? A joke! You are not even worthy of my respect, Person.
- Only great warriors deserve to lead other warriors. You are no great warrior.
- What makes you think you are worthy of leading my men, Person?
- Go and kill all the Snake-Men in the North, and then maybe you can buy my warriors.
- Pathetic. Not even a mark on your face. You cannot lead our warriors.
- I see no reason to give my warriors to a weakling like you.
- You thieving mongrel! Run with fear!
- Run while you still can, slave of evil!
- Your death will be painful and slow, Person!
- Prepare to die, friend of the Enemy!
- Your people are not welcome here!
- I will avenge our stolen gods!
- We shall throw your bones to the crocodiles!
- We will paint the ground with your blood, Person!
- Your wounds will sting like the venom of the scorpion!
- You are foolish to go against the might of the old empire!
- You are a demon out of the North. You have no place here!
- Another savage from the wild plains. Kill it!
- You are less than a rabid beast, Person!
- How dare you stand against our mighty empire?
- You were a fool for coming here, and now, Person, you will die!
