A relatively young (by Elf standards) wizard, Ithari grew up in Fearen, in the forest of Odara. She studied wizardry all her life, and ascended to the status of a planar traveler at the age of 225, roughly 75 years after the battle between Dearias and Zzrull and the creation of the Scarred Lands. Ithari ascended when she was defending Onara from a goblin attack and a goblin arrow pierced her heart. Luckily, her ascension saved her, but she forever bears a mark on her chest.
Believing Dearias to be the greatest wizard of Fearen, and the first traveler, she spends her time traveling the planes seeking him to guide her along her career as a traveler.
