Background[edit | edit source]

Verdan was adopted and raised by Dullahans. At some point, he joined the Iron Vanguard.

He attended Wistram Academy, joining the Qua-Baleros faction. During his years there, he would often engage in partisan political discussion or activity with his peers. Eventually, he was recognized as a Titled Archmage.

In his old age, Verdan recognized that he lacked the stamina to continue to fight it out constantly with the other factions, he retired to Baleros.[3]
