Sanjar's half-brother, Dustum Khan is claimant to the throne of the Khanate, they are both sons of the former ruler, Janakir Khan, though have different mothers. The player can overthrow him if they ally with Dustum, who claims his elder brother defied the ancient traditions of the Khergit wherein the former khan's possessions would be equally divided among his sons upon his death. Sanjar counters this by admitting such a tradition exists, but insisting that the divisions throughout history always resulted in a civil war with the strongest brother taking over anyway, so he just avoided the inevitable by taking full control immediately. He reinforces this opinion by stating that Dustum is not up to the responsibility of leading and protecting the Khanate.
Sanjar Khan possesses the unique Khergit Guard Armor which is impossible to buy without modding or cheating.
