In his youth, Djander outcast his contemporaries in every mage competition. But those were days when the citizens were less superstitious, when the Kingdom of Vandor stretched over the northern lands and magic was revered. His successes granted him access to the king, who hired him as the kingdom's chief mage and counsel.

For the next twenty years, Djander researched and developed most of the new magic in Vandor while the kingdom's power waned. During this time, he began to experiment with Time magic. When the king passed, the land split into the Ten Princedoms. In the smallest princedom, the Isle of Trochu, Djander lives today, though he splits his arcane consulting services among all ten princes.

Slightly absent-minded and short-tempered in his old age, Djander remains very active, and occasionally consults on and develops magic items in his working retirement. In his consulting position with the king, his successes included:

  • Winged Helm (Flying Item)

  • Bag of Withholding (Phasing Item)

  • Phase Guardian (Phasing Construct)
