Furfur arose in the Abyss as a howling force of primeval destruction. At some point, she escaped the confines of that plane to wreak havoc upon the Elemental Chaos.
About 170 years ago, Furfur was arrested for violent murder in the City of Brass and sentenced to 100 years of slavery. The efreeti Dashim acquired her during this time and used her as a guard for his property. When her time was up, Dashim released her into the Elemental Chaos, where she continued to cause devastation.
The Elemental Orbs
Seeking a way to find his lord Ogremoch, Stick made contact with Furfur, who directed him to a portal to the Elemental Chaos. He joined her in Rheilvalt, where they joined Durza, Mraena, and Ambrose Arlidien in making a deal to retrieve the Water Orb for Alraii. Furfur accompanied the adventurers on their subsequent adventures in the Elemental Chaos, meeting Rakarn and Chilgun Swampblood and killing the demons Braxis, Gamigin, and Penumbra along the way.
When Bashamgurda attacked the adventurers with the Elemental Orbs, Furfur wrested the Air Orb from his control, gaining the power to control storms and blasts, with which she helped to defeat him. She then gave the Air Orb over to Alraii in exchange for a wish: to have the powers of flight and weather control. After the rest of the adventurers departed, Alraii offered to grant Furfur a wish to return to the Abyss, free of charge, which Furfur accepted.
Once Furfur returned to the Abyss, the demons she had slain in the Elemental Chaos manifested around her and pledged their loyalty to her, by right of conquest. Gamigin proposed conquering a layer of the Abyss, but Furfur instead set her sights on the mortal world. Over the next few years, she met Thom the Drummer, who put her in contact with the Brotherhood of Blood.
Years later, servants of the Brotherhood of Blood summoned Furfur to destroy the realm of Antaria. Furfur began by murdering each of the cultists, then summoned Braxis, Penumbra, and Gamigin. They rampaged across Antaria and converged on Behjat/Askadalian, where Furfur conjured an Abyssal thunderstorm to knock the city out of the sky.
In the midst of her assault, the Heroes of the Elemental Chaos and the Anti-Cult Cult approached on the Lightning Skiff, and Tarrik Ashmantle speared her with an arrow to the face. Chilgun then rammed the Lightning Skiff into Furfur, knocking her out of the sky and into the Arcane University courtyard. Durza asked why Furfur had betrayed them, to which she replied that she only valued the power to kill her enemies and change the world to her desires. She battled the party in an unrelenting assault, felling Philip the Dull, who gashed her in the face with her own power. She briefly panicked when Rakarn joined the battle, but Penumbra and Gamigin kept him from defeating her. When Pathogen arrived, Furfur insulted his patron, Phraxas the Decayed, as a “weak” demon lord who did not lead campaigns of conquest, but merely poisoned settlements with disease.
Tiring of this battle, Ambrose summoned Alraii, to Furfur’s horror. She tried to beseech Alraii for a wish, but Tarrik muffled her and negotiated with him instead, asking him to render Furfur and her demons mortal. In exchange, Philip offered his sorcerous power, and Alraii stripped away Furfur’s connection to the Abyss, making her able to be killed permanently in the mortal plane. Now fearing death, Furfur surrendered to Tarrik and called off the storm, even as the other demons abandoned her and fled.
Seeking a purpose for Furfur, Ambrose offered her a position in the court of the Morrows, where he would point her at dangerous enemies of the realm and have her eviscerate them, to which Furfur agreed. In order to keep her from turning on Ambrose, Rakarn and Chilgun volunteered to help escort her to the Morrows. The four adventurers boarded the Lightning Skiff and took off for that kingdom, where Ambrose began setting up wards and restraints to keep Furfur bound to her job.
Furfur eventually learned to distinguish between civilians and acceptable targets, and Ambrose began deploying her on missions. She was occasionally haunted by Chilgun’s terrifying moth.
