As a young gnome he was involved in a freak accident that transported him to another plane. This would become the defining event of his youth, not because it was traumatic but because forced planar transportation became a common event in his life. Although it is rarely the same cause twice, Valxif has not often stayed on one plane for more than two years (his record is five years on the long side and 25 minutes on a trip through Sigil).

He took to adventuring because it was always an available job on every plane and magic because he was afraid he might lose any equipment at any time because of a new planar incident; besides, there had to be a spell that would get him home somewhere in some realm. He started his adventures hoping to fight battles for great good but many years on planes ruled by evil he has long since given up the good fight because his erratic existence means that he has involuntarily abandoned many companions to their deaths and never stayed long enough to ever see results either way. Anymore he keeps his head down and will take up most any cause if the money is up front. Now close to 100, he has been to more planes than he can count and some more than once. He dreams of going home one day, if only he could remember where he came from to begin with…
