Illiaph takes meticulous care of his leather armour and often is seen maintaining his appearance, always prepared to put his best foot forward in social situations.
He is prone to zoning out when not being directly addressed and is often observed "people watching," although he has recently revealed his ability to telepathically communicate with and read surface thoughts of others. His people watching habit may refer to something else.Illiaph comes from a respected bloodline of Thessan sorcerers, but did not show signs of arcane gifts in his youth, nor did he choose to accept the aid of his families patron devil, Pholrex, instead bartering for power with an unknown agent. He turned on his family, stealing as much gold as he could carry and fleeing south into Findle.
Illiaph doesn't think twice of sacrificing his Demonic familiars and often gives them embarrassing names. They usually remain invisible to allay suspicions to his dark patron.
The growing threat of being consumed by Jilin eventually became too much to bare. Illiaph and his party turned on Jilin and Illiaph was forced to find another patron. Marcelliyna and Illiaph contacted the unseelie queen Mab, who agreed to patron the warlock if the two kill Var'izan.Unfortunately for the redeemed warlock, he met his end at the hands of the Lich Funiku Dorobo. Shortly afterward he was reincarnated into a new body by his companion Alistyre. He spent the rest of his days travelling with Marcelyina as a servant of Mab.
