The first mention of Jorus can be found in an excerpt of King Aleric’s journal that was made public many years ago. From that point to the Dark War, there is no mention of him. During the Dark War, he and Mithandril were tasked with destroying the Arch-Lich Tal’Sigor. After the battle of South March over two centuries ago, Jorus again disappearred.
He next resurfaced publicly in the year 213 claiming that the Arch-Lich escaped during the Dark War and he has spent the last 7 years hunting him, and has now returned because his work was done and Tal’Sigor had been utterly vanquished.
Yet five years later, in 218 PB, Jorus was found in the Vast Forest of Haven at the center of an necrotic blight which had supposedly been caused by the undead Kingdom of The Night during the Pale War two years earlier. Various reports differ on whether or not Jorus had been mentally dominated by necromantic magic, but it is suggested that Jorus may have played a role in repairing a damaged Phylactery belonging to the Arch-Lich, thus paving the way for the Father of Night to return. After these events, it is said that Jorus was very unwell, and retreated from the public eye once more.
Jorus began his study of magic at a young age, inspired by the powerful ritualist Duke Dhalric Falconcrest. Showing a powerful aptitude for the art, he studied at the School of Magic in King’s Port. He often returned to his home in what was then the Falconcrest Duchy, a part of the greater Heartland Kingdom, and became close friends with the Duke’s son, Aleric.
