Zill was born somewhere in the desert surrounding Calimport. His Drow mother died during childbirth and he was raised by his Human father for the next few years. When Zill was around 10 his father met a human innkeeper who had a small hostelry just outside Calimport. It was a favourite of traders coming into town to unload and get news on potential buyers and the price of goods over a mug of ale.
This is where Zill and Shamshir met and soon became fast friends. Due to the mutual friendship and respect the two fathers shared for each other, and their similar pasts with non human wives, the boys came to have two fathers, neither being raised by one or the other but raised as a shared burden. Zill and his father even became known as part of the “Tanglebrook” family which was the family name of the Human and his half orc son Shamshir. Zill and Shamshir were often in trouble until Zill had one to many hidings from one of his dad’s for some plan that went awry, and felt a burgeoning power released in himself. From that day on he used this power to cloak the boys doings from others and they quickly became the bane of many a traveling merchant, making off with food items, playing pranks on the caravans and often being found in the company of the daughters of the drovers.
After one to many complaint by the caravaners, Zill was shipped off to an underground mage college at a small oasis in the desert, where he received more formal training as a wizard. Those 7 years were the longest of his life as he was separated from Shamshir and his fathers. He succeeded in his training and made his way back to find out what happened to Shamshir and his fathers. Upon arrival he found old ashes where the inn used to be and no news of what happened to his family. After an extensive search taking a couple of months he finally found Shamshir who explained to him that the Inn was burned to the ground about 3 years before and their fathers were dragged behind horses into the desert. Shamshir could not find the corpses or any sign of what happened to their dads. He had assumed that Zill was lost forever and ever since then Shamshir has been looking for the people and the reason for the tragedy. Zill joined him, the two quickly falling back into their old relationship, even closer if truth be told.
Zill joined Shamshir at the orphanage where he has been staying and came to know some of the other children and helpers all the while plotting and scheming to try and find out what happened to their fathers.
