He was raised on his families Lotus wine plantation and taught the arts of swordsmanship as well as the skills needed to be a suitor at court. Although he was an expert swordsman, he was terrible at etiquette and so he father saw fit to enter him into the service of a temple. He became a follower of the Great Swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi, and found his true calling in life. He later married; Sarayoshi and the two had a child Aishimora. After his marriage he went into the world to learn wisdom, there he met Sir Asher DeCovelet, his closest human friend. They became part of a famed adventuring group that included Sieboldiana and Bailey Raynar.

He was betrayed and killed in the Egg of Lolth only to have his daughter call upon the gods and have him return to save Brie, though he could not save his own people. He and his companions unlocked the Prophecy of Brie and returned Loring Silchester to the realm, then led the free men and women of Brie in a war that saw the Arapesh driven out and the rightful regents returned to power.
