Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Nightfall.
The undead lord of the Desolation, Palawa once controlled the valleys leading north out of Elona from his strategically positioned Bone Palace. Commanding hordes of undead followers raised from ancient tombs, he invaded Vabbi, intent on conquering it and using its riches to make himself even more powerful. After he was defeated by the great Kournan hero, Turai Ossa, his body is said to have been imprisoned beneath a huge stone plinth. Many villainous individuals have attempted to commune with the spirit of the Scourge of Vabbi. As long as his history lives on, people will remember his name.

Guild Wars 2
According to the PC Gamer Magazine, some time between the Nightfall campaign and Guild Wars 2, Palawa Joko went on a new campaign and this time, he crushed his resistance. Now his forces, along with an ancient dragon, act as a barrier between the Crystal Desert and the Desolation. Perhaps his most staggering victory seems to have been the subjugation of Vabbi by diverting their primary water source and causing a major famine. He is confirmed to be a minor antagonist in Guild Wars 2.
