Sakazrân Garbanâth was the founder of the Eldritch Conclave. He and others of this mage guild were responsible for much of the cataclysmic events that befell Gulimbor.
In his early days, Sakazrân had a falling out with the monarchy government and decided to bring about new rule in the First Khazarkar Empire. He felt that the stagnation and moral decay of the empire was caused by the in-breeding between the families that make-up the Minâth-Nôrî. To change this, he embarked on his own political campaign and organized some of mightiest mages of the First Khazarkar Empire under the name of the Eldritch Conclave.
When the Eldritch Conclave overthrew the monarchy (Year 993) and established a magocracy in its place, war followed against the Rogue States. The powers of the magocracy went unchecked and the mages recklessly worked the Weave with little regard to the consequences. The lands and people suffered from tears in the Web of Magic which led to the Gulimbor Cataclysm (996 - 1203). Ultimately, the peoples of Gulimbor were forced to flee the lands and seek out new homes in other areas of the world. This massive migration became known as the Great Exodus (998 - 1017).
Even though Sakazrân was evil at the time, he grew depressed with the destruction that he and the Eldritch Conclave had brought down upon the once beautiful lands of Gulimbor. For more than two centuries he pleaded with the mortal Aredhel and prayed to The Balance for guidance in restoring the splendor of his homeland. His pleas and prayers were finally answered. He was redeemed, cleansed of any last vestiges of evil, and told that the process of restoration would be long and that his ways must embrace nature. Sakazrân embarked on a campaign to restore the natural order and pristine landscape of ancient Gulimbor. On 12 Dreamer 1426, Sakazrân became the Nature Protectorate for Gulimbor.
Sakazrân's first act was to stabilize the chaotic weather patterns of Gulimbor. He did this by destroying an artifact called the Sceptre of Phenul-Tamrâk. The destruction of this item led to the enlargement of the Barândîr glacier. After thousands of years, nature and the effects of the artifact's destruction have restored parts of the region to its former splendor.
