Isll was born in the city of Natiel in Cilion. During his childhood he showed a talent for the arcane arts. However, since he was born to a small-time shop owner they could not afford to send him to mage’s school. So, they decided to enroll him in the military.
Before young Isll knew what was happening soldiers took him from his parents and began to train him. He learned quickly and within a few years he reached the rank of officer within the Cilion army.
