Ildor Earthhaven was during the final years of the Great War. His parentage is unclear as there's reasonable evidence to suggest the father could've been Kareth d'Zarnagon or Hiroshi Takamoto. After his mother, Varalia Earthhaven, joined Xerathas d'Zarnagon's Grey Cult, she raised Ildor in Aison's capital Myridia. Ildor spent his days learning magic and archery although his heart yearned to see the world outside the capital's walls. However, he respected his mother's wishes and remained obedient.
- "If you know all this, why don't you rescue mother? What are you still waiting for? Are you just going to abandon her to her fate?"
- "Your mother's important to us for many reasons, young Ildor, and I won't let Alent use her for their own ends. I've already put events in motion which will ensure her safe return, so you needn't worry. Lady Varalia will return to us in time, but until then we'll have to continue the work of the Lord of Emptiness. This includes you too. You may not realize it yet, but you have potential which our Lord, the Godslayer, will put to good use soon."
- "Words mean nothing if there's no action to back it up, Lord Xerathas. I can't stand for this idleness while mother's risking her life out there! She taught me--all of us--better than let us simply bide our time behind the safety of walls of stone!"
- —Ildor and Xerathas d'Zarnagon
Xerathas informed Ildor of Varalia having disappeared after the Second Battle of Magestar and that she had likely ended up as a prisoner in the Magicracy of Alent considering that some Alentian mages had been in the Magestar during her disappearance. Having turned 13 recently, Ildor sneaked out of Myridia as soon as he could on the back of a cart, unaware that he also had other travelling companions, the mercenary Seria Greaplane and the mage Myria, who had been hired by Xerathas to bring Varalia back.
After some heated discussion, the trio decided to travel together, hoping to use one another's abilities on the journey ahead through dangerous lands. Although curious about the women at first, Ildor quickly grew weary of the way they acted which annoyed him.
Their banter came to an end when they met with Haomos, one of the Prophets, who was hunting for a stray, purple-haired quarter-elf. The Prophet asked the group to be on the lookout for the stray girl and report her whereabouts as quickly as possible in case they saw her. Ildor kept out of sight, not wanting to alert the Cult's authorities that he wasn't in Myridia anymore, but he did eavesdrop on the conversation and wondered what was so special about one escaped convict that had made a Prophet like Haomos hunt for her personally.
After having travelled some more, they came across the stray quarter-elf whom Haomos had mentioned. They tried to catch her but in vain as she slipped through their fingers thanks to her agility.
