Zur, known as Zur the Enchanter or as Zur the Mad, was a powerful wizard during the Dominarian Ice Age.[1]


Zur was a rival of the famous Gustha Ebbasdotter, the royal mage of Kjeldor. A former Kjeldoran, Zur was exiled for his insane attempts to achieve eternal life. He later assembled a formidable array of mages and soldiers and attacked his former homeland. His efforts were thwarted however, in part by the ancient mage Jodah.

Zur ventured deep into the tundra and disappeared. From then on, he deliberately avoided taking a hand in the events of later years, remaining aloof from the casting of the World Spell or the plots of the Cult of Rimewind. Most people thought he died, although some of his followers claimed he attained immortality deep in the frozen wastes.

As the glaciers receded and the waters rose, Zur's followers fled inland to Kjeld. The Kjeldorans never expected Zur himself to stoop so low as to ask them for help, but were surprised when Zur's followers begrudgingly did. Darien welcomed them with many other refugees and they would be part of the founding citizens of New Argive.
