Isthur Glee, who was at one time one of the masters of the Thriff Guild of Enchanters, could easily be spotted because he had one of the largest pairs of ears. In response to the encroaching evil caused by the Great Terror, he set out by boat with the Great Shuboz Shuboz, Khare the Watcher, Shad Treeskimmer, Grimbol the Great, Raskil Worrysnot, and Finister to find Anesi who was living near Caper's Hill. These wizards believed that his youth would be the greatest advantage against the Great Terror, for he still had his innocence and would not be tempted to evil like most others. Isthur Glee took care of Mildi and Choboz while their son was gone on the quest, and after Anesi returned, was willing to stay around for as long as was needed.
