Orest was born after the start of the Arkosian/Bael Turath war. As he grew up, he realized that all races could get along, that both sides of the war would lose and making an alliance would be beneficial. He runs into Templar Evander and they quickly make a strong friendship and Orest is introduced to Nimozaran and Dirina Mornbrow. Orest suggests establishing a Wizards Guild to help protect Evander and later his son, [[Draven]]. He also tracked Draven and found out his plans to create multiple phlyacteries.
