In 760, claiming to be unhappy with an unbroken line of dynastic rule, the Gibil-Nâru clan cut ties with the Kingdom of Phlehorn. Their real reason for breaking away was the kingdom's refusal to admit the Church of Ares. These followers of Ares were the result of quarrying Whiteblood, and thus by Phlehorn's religious laws, unlawfully gained.

The Gibil-Nâru migrated east to the forested hills and lower mountain slopes of the Siguzilbak forest. Over the next two decades, population growth was helped from the addition of other clans with a more aggressive approach to the region's threats. Led by the Gibil-Nâru, these clans served as mercenary forces, aiding Phlehorn in all of the Siguzilbak Wars. The warring nature of the Gibil-Nâru is often attributed to their use of Whiteblood Crystal. Priests of Danzar-Khâl, the primary dwarven god of the Clans region, say this crystal is a lure, one treated by Ares to create followers from those who use it in battle.

With the end of the Sixth Siguzilbak War, the Gibil-Nâru formed their own kingdom. The first ruler was Queen Fargimdal. A hero of the war, having suffered numerous mortal wounds and survived, war priests of Ares proclaimed her a saint on the same day the kingdom was founded under her name. Phlehorn did not object to this move. They liked the idea of having Fargimdal, a military-minded kingdom, between them and the equally aggressive elves of the Rúmil Empire.
