|Fate||Slain in the Battle of Fangorn Forest|
Born in the late-Third Age, Horvak lived in the Misty Mountains all his life until he was summoned to meet with a group of Goblin Chieftains. Believing the plan was too risky, he went along with the plan, and was in charge in leading battalions of Goblins in reclaiming the ancient dwarf city of Moria. Still aware of the Balrog's existence, Horvak dread carefully when he led his troops into the eastern gate of Moria and engaged the Dwarves of Moria. Throughout the battle, Horvak and his kin sweeped into the abandoned mines and tunnels, and raided remote Dwarven outposts. With Moria reclaimed, Horvak and his kin celebrated their victory while his rival took Drisnak over, and every Goblin in the dwarven realm were known as "Moria Goblins".
During the War of the Ring in TA 3001, Horvak was fast asleep when he heard a loud banging noise. The noise came from Chamber of Mazarbul when Peregrin Took accidentally touched the corpse of a dead dwarf and the banging cause a loud echo throughout the mines. Horvak was now aware that there were intruders in the mines and summoned battalion of Goblins to investigate at the sound of the drums. He led his forces throughout the underground city to pursue the Fellowship of the Ring, but their efforts failed when they heard the roar of the Balrog. Horvak and his band were frightened, and they immediately retreated away.
After the Balrog was defeated by Gandalf the Grey, who gave his life to give the others a chance to escape, Horvak rallied a large number of Goblin warriors, and led led his tribe to seek their revenge on the Fellowship for the fall of their Chief. Horvak´s Host followed the Fellowship to Lórien where his troops were defeated by the Guardians of the forest. A small number of Survivors continued to follow the Fellowship's track to Rohan and eventually joined forces with the Orcs of the Eye under the command of Grishnákh. The last remnants of Horvak's expedition were slain by the Eoréd of Éomer Éadig near the borders of Fangorn Forest.
