The Staff of Sundering was created by the dark elf transmuter, Draxis The Dark.
Draxis was a powerful wizard that left the Underdark at the early age of 50 to be free of the matriarchy of the Drow.
Being a male and a wizard left him in a dangerous position. More powerful than the priestess and not wanting to be controlled, he set out for the surface.
Draxis had a good heart and soon overcame the prejudices of the surface folk of Mountain Hold by magically increasing their crops and even making flowers bloom in the dead of winter.
When the storm giants from the north threatened the kingdom, he created the Staff of Sundering to slow their advance by creating avalanches to close the mountain pass from the frozen north.
Draxis was declared a hero of Mountain Hold and no one could dare challenge his courage or allegiance to Mountain Hold.
When the call went out to gather the most powerful wizard in Sul-el – Draxis jumped at the chance to prove his worth.
He grabbed his staff and set out for glory. After the battle with Ruin, Draxis returned to his home of Mountain Hold and spent many decades protecting his the city from the abominations of the north and taking many apprentices to train them how to do the same.
Word reached the Underdark and many Drow found their way to refuge in Mountain Hold. To this day, the city has the highest population of Drow on the surface of Sul-el.
