Rone is one of the Five, the most powerful wizards of Avernum. He served as advisor to King Micah in the position of Royal Magician for most of his life in Exile and is the only member of the Five never to have served in the Triad. A memorial to him was destroyed with the Tower of Magi. Rone played an integral part in the imprisonment of Grah-Hoth in Skarragath. To many, Rone was considered the most worldly of the Five, and his competence as a battle commander may have been the reason the Exiles succeeded in overthrowing the demons.
A rumor that Rone has recently died of old age has been proven false: Rone is alive and still extending his life magically. The price of such magic is pain and a slow withering away of the body and mind.
