Graz'zt was born during the Abyssal Release (7777 DE - 8777 DE). He began his rise to fame as a soldier of the Nawirrûs Covenant. On a mission to gain intel on the Abyssal Release, he fell to the lure of the first succubus. Named Lilek, she was the most powerful and seductive of them all. This was a long running affair. Each mission, or escape, to the worlds of Piranoths Steps led to a meeting with this succubus. When it was learned that he was having this affair, and worse, giving away information in the heat of passion, he was cast out the Covenant, made a Fallen Angel. He went to corrupted world of Savadire, joining his lover in their schemes of domination and manipulation. Lilek's affairs with others made Graz'zt extremely jealous, many died. Graz'zt turned to revenge affairs, becoming a notorious womanizer.

In the war with the primordials and rival demon upstarts, Graz'zt became a Demon Lord. By conquest, he made the world of Azzagrat his dominion. Date unknown, sometime during this rise to power, he broke free of his long-time lover's influence.

On 3 War March 9095 GE, joining the the Demon Spawn War, Graz'zt's demon legions invaded the world of Bal-Kriav. His goal was to seize the Karterus continent as new world real estate. In the Yandôr Conflict, Graz'zt's forces attacked the Hive region. This southern part of Karterus was the domain of Chronos, then a planetar. Chronos, independent of the Quara'tun Covenant, proved no match with his region occupied by demon forces.

In the Tha'lith Conflict, another of the mini-wars that made up the Demon Spawn War, Graz'zt battled the Covenant armies of Silvanus and Lukoon. One of the lasting effects of this conflict was a unit that went into hiding after the demon's defeat. This was the Vauquix, a group that would go on to establish the Vareley Empire, a demon empire on a mortal world. Oddly enough, Graz'zt did not take advantage of their position on Bal-Kriav, creating proselytizers to spread his influence. Historical records from the Abyss are often full of lies, back-stabbing, or talking oneself up for history, yet in them are grains of truth. Those that have looked into the Tha'lith Conflict say that Graz'zt had problems back home. On the world Azzagrat, historians write that Graz'zt departure was the only reason for the Covenant victory. As for the matter of not using Varelay to establish his own following, with the end result of becoming a Higher Power, it is said Graz'zt then had no such aspirations. Those on Thantos say something different. They say Orcus had Graz'zt against the wall, giving his foe little time to nurture a priesthood or waste days on end, drunk in brothel.

Before abandoning his forces on Bal-Kriav, Graz'zt said to his favorite prisoner, one he lusted for deeply, yet failed to charm:

Your kind has won this battle, but at what cost. The entire general staff of Asmodeus has been cast out, driven to some place they are calling Hells, a fitting name for Fallen Angels. The seeds of your destruction have been planted on this world and many others. We are leaving, and you will soon give it all up to your petty mortals. Some of these will become our agents of destruction and in time bring about subjugation.

Consider yourself blessed by Lukoon, for you are the only angel that I have ever let go free. Now go tell my words to Phalgas and Athena and whoever else you cross. Don't bother with Ares, for he is so bent on war that I'm certain he will be the one that lights the fuse to our next great conflict.

- Graz'zt, to the then sword archon Apoxlin - "Graz'zt's Farewell"

On Bal-Kriav, Graz'zt's influence and divine power gained traction under Mordkon Bluefang. Over hundreds of years, he established cults from the Aerie of Dragons to the Northern Hordelands. Some of cells worked out of brothels with succubus whispering to their lovers, the word of Graz'zt, promising wealth, success, or anything else the customer desired. These brothels turned out to be very effective, leading to shrines and temples in Suf Sungaar, Vrak-Tror, Hezvix, and other cities across middle Brucrumus. The largest gain for Graz'zt came with the Dark Prince Civil War (1818 - 1821). When the dust settled, the Toomrur Hegemony became the heart of Graz'zt worship.

Exactly five years after the Dark Prince Civil War, on 11 Brighstar 1826, Graz'zt gave up his status as a Cult Power, becoming a Demigod.

Graz'zt is a sensual, lustful god, a heavy drinker of wine. He has a grand palace on the world Azzagrat, aptly named "The Brothel", and for as far as the eye can see are vineyards said to produce some of the best wines in all the known universe.
