Urtho is considered to be the most powerful biomancer of Altaris's history. He was a prodigy even as a child and is frequently referred to as "the Wise" because he saw through his fellow Atlantean's hubris and decided to help the rebels in their war against his own kind.

He only helped in defense and healing during the War of Chaos. He preferred to do no violence but did stop various attacks.

Before the Chaos Wars Urtho put a veil on all the entrances of his tower, which only let in those that he had programmed (their biosignature) into his security system. Any others that tried to enter, would be pushed 20 ft back, knocked unconscious and gaesed to never come again.

He also placed a self-destruction spell upon his Tower that would trigger in the event of his death. He did this because he didn't want any of his inventions to fall into the wrong hands. Many could be turned into weapons, even though his original use was for peaceful research.
