Yargad Gorhash was a male Indogene, the believed inventor of the Environmental Guardian Online technology and the High Priest of the Pilgrims of the Guiding Light.


He worked on the personality transference program along with Meh Yewll and Lev, but found that all the minds they tried to replicate resulted in the death of the subject. ("Main Mission:Alter Ego: Rift in Personalities", "Intel:Making History II") He was contacted by Reh Valamm who wanted his help with her EGO technology as she needed a convincing personality to ensure better integration. ("Intel:Only One Candidate") Yargad said that Reh should be the basis for the personality but didn't tell her it would kill her. He used the personality to complete the EGO devices and claimed them as his own creation. ("Intel:Making History II", "Main Mission:Alter Ego: Ghost in the Machine") He was aboard one of the Arks and is believed to have died aboard them during the Arkfall. ("Loading screen")
