Because Arkat wasn't a selfish hero. He didn't get his hero powers so he
personally could become more powerful, but for a reason that was supposed
to help everyone.

(From the Lore Auction at RQ Con Down Under: "Arkat fought Nysalor, and
Gbaji lost.")

I really liked Michael Raaterova's cult of Lhankor Mhy.
