Zef spent most of his childhood exploring the rocky wilderness around his hometown of Shalzerb in the Demiplane of Nightmares. Like most of his peers he would play pranks and sow a bit of friendly discord among his friends, but that was normal for a young Diabolus boy. He was also particularly curious and used his frequent explorations to study the strange happenings around his home. You see, the Demiplane of Nightmares has an unusually thin border with the Far Realm, and that mad domain would frequently change the nature of the Dream Realm at random. Due to his fluctuating surroundings Zef became fascinated with the unknowable underlying way in which the world worked. Religion, as it is known to Humans and their ilk, is practically unknown among the Diaboli in their native realm. Most simply revere the natural forces they find themselves surrounded by, such as Chaos, Luck, and Magic; unaware of the deities that shape those forces.
Zef always suspected there had to be more to it, and he was shown a new way of thinking when he met Danlor the Discounted. Zef came to the Prime Material Plane by way of a Planar Ally spell which was cast by Danlor a cleric of Trithereon, God of Liberty. Danlor, who was one of the only active worshipers of Trithereon in his region, implored the god to send him a helper to do Trithereon’s good works. When the spell was cast, Zef was called from his home to the strange and orderly Material Plane.
Knowing that this strange nightmarish creature must have been chosen for a reason, Danlor offered Zef a chance to know the divine and learn about this strange new world in return for helping him do Trithereon’s work. Zef found wisdom in the words of the strange nightmarish creature he was called to, and accepted Danlor’s proposition despite the horror the man’s appearance caused. Zef learned much from Danlor, and for years they traveled together spreading word of Tritheron, opposing tyrants, and freeing slaves; during which time they overcame their initial revulsion of one another and became close friends.
Zef has gone his own way for some time now, finding that not all Humans are as accepting as Danlor. The two still keep in touch with the occasional sending spell, so Danlor can check on how Zef is progressing on the task he was called to this plane for so many years ago.
