Jharlamak, long forgotten god of arcanna, father to the first mages, also known as Thorne.  8000 years ago, this god was there when the first elven wizards learned magic from the Dragons.  As civilization progressed, humanoids began utilizing more and more magic.  Other gods entered into the world, Ganesha, Naraska, and Ina Po began ministering to the wielders of magic.  Jharlamak was becoming forgotten as the other gods spread across the world.

Even with a dwindling worshiper base, Jharlamak wouldn't leave his beloved children alone.  He watched as the Dragon's drove his children from the Viarac Mountain range.  His children began to spread out and the magic was getting lost as racial strife and survival in a hostel world became the imperative.  Using what influence he still held over his children through his few remaining priests, Jharlamak drew the races together in a grand Mage Guild.

Seeing that his priesthood was about to become extinct, he convinced Zerhtain, his Hight Templar, to become his chosen warrior.  He founded the Knights of Thorne and sent them into the world to join with the mages as guards and companions.  Jharlamak willingly allowed his priesthood to dwindle and then die out as the Knights became his favorites.

The advent of the Magewar saddened Jharlamak.  His chosen served both sides and were now forced to fight one another.  Jharlamak was pained each time his power was used against itself.  The atrocities grew and grew as did his pain.  Finally, he decided to draw his power back and abandon the mages to their war.

After Jharlamak had removed his hands from the world, he could only watch helplessly as T'lor was created.  Frustrated, he watched as T'lor found subjects and recruited the aid of the Fallen to assist him in his crusade.  When T'lor sundered the magic and instituted the Veil, Jharlamak wept.

Jharlamak waited for a time when his children could reenter the world.  That day has finally come.  The Veil has weakened and magic has begun to be focused again in the world.  But Jharlamak knows that the magic will not go unopposed.  T'lor has awakened from his slumber and is rallying the remnants of his former priesthood.  Jharlamak knows that the only way to prevent the T'loric Priests from sundering the magic again is to return its protectors.

History/Relationships:  Jharlamak is newly returned to the world.  He has no priests due to his weakened state.  He sends all of his divine power to the Knights of Thorne instead of granting it to clerics.  Gods like Wee Jas and Boccob aid Jharlamak when they can.  T'lor commands his priests to destroy Jharlamak's knights whenever they can.  Magehunters resent Jharlamak due to their ancient relationship.

Dogma:  Jharlamak teaches that his children should protect magic users.  The Knights of Thorne follow a Code that sums up Jharlamak's teachings.
