The Governors of Nowhere are major antagonists from the Rooster Teeth animated web series Nomad of Nowhere. They are a council of rulers formed by El Rey, and each command four different territories in Nowhere.
El Rey was once a benevolent and honorable ruler until his mind was taken over by his magical crown. This led to him becoming a tyrannical, violent, and cruel monarch that ruled over Nowhere with an iron fist. When the people rose up to protest and riot against their corrupt king, El Rey transformed one of his guards into the minotaur Toro. Toro was sent out by El Rey to slaughter the protesting citizens of Nowhere. He proceeded to burn dozens of villages to the ground and claim all of the lands in the west, setting up his capital: the Killosseum.
Around this time, El Rey assembled three more of the remaining magic users in the land. They swore allegiance to him, and he appointed them as his governors. Toro became the governor of the west, and the other three went to claim the lands to the north, south, and east, with him stationing his kingdom in the center of Nowhere, thus creating the brutal monarchy of Nowhere.
Sometime later and over the next 100 years, El Rey learned of the magic Nomad, and made him the number one most wanted fugitive in the land, not stopping until he claims his prize.
Toro is the Governor of the West and currently the only named governor. He was the first one to be appointed, and served under El Rey while he was still a human. As a minotaur, he possesses incredible strength and enjoys nothing more than killing and violence, and will only interest himself with activities with high body counts.
