Hezekiah Grofus was born in the Outlands under circumstances so mysterious that most assume he is an orphan and reticent about his past. He grew up in traveling circus some 300 miles from the Spire of Outlands.

Hezekiah was fascinated with puzzles, riddles, illusions and the whisper of magic that powerful beings were rumored to wield; he sought to earn his freedom from the Mana-Mines by making secret pacts with extraplanar potentates. Hezekiah succeeded in his escape by building himself a modron suit and joining the Great Modron Procession when it visited the Outlands. But he only got so far as Sigil when he was discovered and banished to the streets of the City of Doors.

The human youth attempted to apply for employment with the the Great Library but he was turned down due to insufficient power and life experience. An anonymous patron supported him to become a janitor at the University of Boccob and his curious nature took over. He secretly studied magic, the powers which had eluded him so long blossomed with his first cantrips.

Yet he was not an aristocrat and ineligible to become a student at the Academy. Hezekiah took a risk and jumped through a portal after a Brass Dragon to arrive on the Material plane in the vicinity of Cauldron City, on the World of Kulan. He survived by his wits and became a founding member of the Order of the Silver Hand, never forgetting his humble beginnings.
