The Band of Mirrors was created by the powerful gnome illusionist Tanlin Sayer.
Tanlin was began his career as a tinkerer and artificer, but his impish side led him to illusion magic.
Not the least of which was playing tricks on his friends. It is said Tanlin ran away from home at the early age of 30 to study under Mankas the Great, the court wizard of Rivenrun. Mankas, being just a human died at the age of 65 and the responsibility for magically advisement fell to his most experienced apprentice, Tanlin.
Tanlin liked the new found responsibility and power and began to gather magical items and knowledge through the his new, powerful position.
It is rumored that Tanlin was such and introvert, that he actually never attended a council meeting in person. It’s said that he sent an illusion of himself to take notes. When the call came to gather the most powerful wizards in Sul-El to fight Ruin, Tanlin reluctantly agreed to represent Rivenrun.
After the battle Tanlin was shaken by the death and destruction and resigned his position as court magician. It’s said that he became a hermit and retreated to the hills to the east to live out his life in isolation and contemplation.
