Ephen, also called S'ephen, was stepson of King Kronin of Ebonheart. His brother King Cruethys inherited the throne, followed by King Moraelyn. Ephen himself could not inherit the throne, as he was not a member of the Ra'athim clan. Moraelyn started a temple cult dedicated to him and worshipped him as a god. Moraelyn left the Staff of Chaos under his guardianship.
