Born into the typical upper class, in Kyralia and trained at the Magicians' Guild, Akkarin demonstrated unusual strength for a novice, with his only close peer being his closest friend, Lorlen. He attributes his unusual strength to frequent bouts between them in practice, and trying to outdo one another. After specialising in Warrior Skills and graduating as a magician, he embarked on a multi-year voyage throughout the Allied Lands, seeking to research ancient magic, during which he read the Dorgon Scrolls of the Mahga religion, and rediscovered the Chamber of Ultimate Punishment. In this time he visited the Great Library of Capia, and met Tayend of Tremmelin who was then a young library assistant.
