General Hining is the Second-in-command as well as the leader of King Tyras's army and can be found in Tyras Camp. He plays a background role in the Regicide quest, and a minor role in the Catapult Construction quest. He pins his hope on the catapult, seeing it as an essentiality to the lines of defence for Tyras Camp; and also has a strong disliking towards the catapult guard, finding him incompetent and a waste of army rations. After the quest Regicide, he tells the player to leave as he leads Tyras's last band of loyal soldiers to fight the ' evil forces ' that are coming. He may play a more important role a future release of the quest series.
During Catapult Construction, he instructs the player to find the catapult engineer when the player offers their service to repair the catapult for him.
- He may be based on General Haig, a General in the Boer and First World War, who pinned his hopes on a weapon.
- His name may be a play on words for General "Hiding", as he constantly hides from the elves and the "evil forces".
- Some players speculate that he is King Tyras in disguise, meaning the tent would have been empty during the Regicide quest. Those, however, are only rumours and may or may not be clarified in future updates.
