Entil-zha is the only off –spring of his parents Tannian and Tela-zha. They and their entire tribe save Entil-zha were killed by the humanoid forces of the Son’s of Kyuss in CY 551. A wandering band of adventurers who had been employed by the elves to help with the humanoid army arrived on the scene of the slaughter while the goblins and bugbears were divvying up the spoils. The party overcame the humanoids and found the baby, Entil-zha spirited away in a hiding place.
Dathon, a human priest of St. Cuthbert took the child and decided to raise him as his own in the faith of Cuthbert. Dathon even gave Entil his name, which translated from Elvish to common, means “the application of force”. From the time little Entil-zha could walk, Dathon impressed upon him the lessons of St. Cuthbert and the importance of extracting vengeance for every mis-deed, A deed Dathon placed particular importance on was focusing Entil-zha on paying all humanoids back for the death of his parents through-out the long centuries of his life. Entil-zha absorbed the teachings of St. Cuthbert and by the time he was four years of age could recite all of the holy Cuthberthian manuscripts from memory.
As gifted as he was with the Word of Cuthbert, Entil-zha was even more gifted with the art of arcane magic, at the tender age of six, Entil-zha observed a magicians act on the streets of the Free City of Greyhawk and within twenty minutes was able to perform the spell himself. Another man in the crowd took notice of this and introduced himself as Otluke, He and Dathon spoke for several minutes and the next day, after Entil-zha finished his morning devotions to Cuthbert he was taking to Citadel Arcanus, perhaps the finest Arcane college in the city.
There he spent a wonderful day learning about the history of magic and notable wizards past and present. At the end of the day he and Otluke returned to the sanctuary of the Cudgel where he and his father Dathon lived via a teleport spell. After evening devotions, Dathon allowed Entil-zha to tell him of his day. Entil-zha delighted in telling is father about the notable wizards such as Bigby and Tenser and he even spoke the dark god Venca and how through magic he attained a place in the heavens. Dathon beat Entil-zha for the insolence to suggest that Venca had a place in the heavens but even as Dathon rained blow by blow down on little Entil-zha, he admitted that magic was a powerful tool and if Entil-zha was to learn to use it he would learn the right reasons to use it.
After the beating Dathon made a deal with Entil-zha, should Entil-zha still wish to learn the secrets of arcane magic he would be allowed to do so as long as his studies did not interfere or detract from his duties to St. Cuthbert. From that day on Entil-zha poured himself into the study of magic both arcane and divine, so gifted was his understanding of the word of Cuthbert at the age of twelve he was allowed to assist The Scribe of Cuthbert, in reproducing the holy texts that documented the tenants of the faith.
Dathon was proud of his adopted son but tried to stress the martial lessons of the faith as well. He told Entil-zha that the knowledge in the world did not amount to much when a blood thirsty orc was swinging a sword at you. Entil-zha tried to appease Dathon by learning to use the chosen weapon of St. Cuthbert , the heavy mace, but he had no talent with the weapon and told his father that physical weapons were undignified and lacked the grace of magic, Dathon promptly and predictably beat Entil-zha with a club while lecturing him on the practicality of being able to defend yourself physically, until when out of nowhere Dathon was hit by a force so hard that it broke his jaw and knocked him clean out.
When Dathon came to, he was being tended to by Entil-zha; after Dathon successfully (on the third try) casted a spell to mend his jaw he asked Entil-zha what happened. Entil-zha explained that he used an arcane spell he learned at Citadel Arcanus; that produced a force effect to strike an opponent (Entil-zha wisely did not tell Dathon the name of the spell was Bigby’s Sucker Punch). Entil-zha then proceeded with the flawless argument that if he could use magic to defend against a powerful and trained battle cleric of St. Cuthbert while he was being struck, then a bloodthirsty Orc should be little trouble by comparison. Dathon laughed for could not deny the logic, nor refute the argument and he congratulated Entil-zha on both of his victories that day.
On Entil-zha’s eighteenth name day (the day Dathon found him), he was granted the honor to become apprentice of none other than Otluke himself. The next decade and a half seem to fly by as Entil-zha learned all that he could from Otiluke, which given the frequency of Otilukes absences was not near as much as Entil-zha would have liked to have learned, however being the hand chosen apprentice of Otluke had many privileges and perks that many full wizards much less apprentices were ever afforded. Entil-zha never wavered from his promise to Dathon even under the burden of apprenticeship; he never missed his daily devotions to St. Cuthbert.
In CY 582 the conflict that became known as the Greyhawk Wars broke out. Dathon who was now in his late thirties requested to be placed with a forward military legion but his request was denied, Entil-zha was by special request of Otiluke assigned to him to perform duties as needed. Entil-zha served most of the war as a diplomatic liaison and scribe to encrypt/decrypt military orders.
In CY 584 at the peace accords in the Free City of Greyhawk; that ended the Greyhawk Wars, Rary the traitor instigated a massive magical battle within the Great Hall attempting to assassinate the other members of the Circle of Eight, he killed Otiluke and Tenser; Entil-zha was nearly mortally wounded in this attack as well. Shortly after the death of Otiluke, Entil-zha was granted the title of Wizard.
Upon attaining the title of wizard, Entil-zha left Citadel Arcanus and returned to his father Dathon’s new church of St. Cuthbert in Dyvers. The two of them tended to the needs of the new church until the Orc League war broke out in CY 611. Dathon now in his early sixties again requested forward deployment and again the request was denied. Dathon convinced Entil-zha to join the inquisitor corps with him, where they were immediately accepted. Dathon got his wish and was assigned to Fulwar; Entil-zha was initially chosen for the same duty but was reassigned to Veluna to make full use of his magnificent crafting abilities.
Entil-zha’s adopted father was killed at the battle of Fulwar in CY 613. Entil-zha finished out the war and left the Inquisitor Corps before the war between the church factions had begun. Alone for the first time in his life Entil-zha decided to travel and visit all of the places he had read about.
