"Evil Norsundrian" is about all the kid rulers of S-d know during the mid-thirties, when they first encounter him. Hibern of Marloven Hess is the first to identify him as an actual Old Sartoran. What the kids slowly discover just makes him seem more sinister: his name is Detlef (from the even more ancient name Dei To Laef) y'Reverael ne-Hindraeldre, which means he was part of a family called Reverael, and was the officially designated heir to Hindraeldre.

His early life was spent in training as a Guardian, something he had not chosen, and he was adequate but nothing great. At an age far later than most he studied to become a dyranarya--one of the healers who use dyra made of disirad in order to mend psychic/physical disturbance. He was extremely good at that, so good that he became a target for the individuals who would later form Norsunder after trying to take control of the world.

He formed a dyranarya circle which was systematically hunted down and murdered, only one escaping, who later became Lilith the Guardian. Detlef's own life-partner was the first one murdered. Due to a time anomaly, it was made clear to Detlef that he alone was responsible for yanking a promising young morvende--known for his brilliance as well as his brains and beauty--from farther up the timestream, and converting him to evil to become the truly terrifying Ilerian of Norsunder. Second, his nephew Siamas (who later came to be known as Siamis Y Reverael), the only one left alive of his family, was hunted down and trapped by Efael and Yres (later called Iris and Philip) of Norsunder, to be played with until Detlef's surrender. These two events caused him to surrender himself, and Sartor fell soon afterward, but it was so diminished there was little prize left to possess, so Norsunder withdrew from the world for a considerable time in order to let the world become worthy of possession again--and until Detlef could be brought to run to their command. As a Norsundrian away from time, he put his considerable study skills to work at becoming the very best at every aspect of war.

Between the Fall of Old Sartor and the 4740's Detlev has been working for Norsunder and assuming various guises including Ramis of the Knife in the Inda stories. When he dropped the guises, he modernized his name to Detlev, leaving off his family names.

This is as far as anyone knows by the year 4740; as for Detlev's intentions and motivations, it can be said that he gives another layer of meaning to the term anamnesis . . .
