Byuchyuch became an "indentured servant" to House Do'Urden circa 1307 DR. In or around 1317 DR, he was summoned by Maya and Malice Do'Urden to play a part in their plan to force Drizzt Do'Urden to sled blood before entering Melee-Magthere, the drow fighters' academy. Malice magically turned Byuchyuch's appearance into that of a drow and Maya presented him as her champion, challenging Drizzt to a fight. Drizzt easily overcame the poor fighter. While Byuchyuch was helpless, Drizzt was magically compelled by Malice to kill him. Doing so made Byuchyuch the first being Drizzt had killed.
