When Zurkun was a lowly apprentice, he was chosen by Ak'Anon representatives to escort a high elf to Odus. While on the ocean crossing he made friends with the elf and found that his new friend, Imstralio by name, was carrying a myserious, powerful artifact. Before getting to Odus, though, they were attacked by strange looking alien creatures. Zurkun's friend and the artifact were taken, and Zurkun only escaped by jumping into the ocean. He has pledged to become as powerful as he can to find his friend. He searches still.
