As the son of the marilith demon, Mulvassyss the Sceptered, and a human father, Vhok appeared mostly humanoid, but with light olive colored skin and silver hair. Most believed him to be an aging half-elf due to his pointed ears. Beneath his rich clothes Vhok's chest, arms, and legs were covered with deep green scales that showed his tanar'ri heritage.
Vhok had a regal bearing and carried himself with elegance and dignity despite his demonic heritage. When dealing with others Vhok was cultured and polite, but this charm was all for show. He could be very ruthless when taking actions to increase his power. Vhok viewed everyone around him as an enemy. His allies were merely adversaries with whom he shared a common goal, and who were to be betrayed when they became liabilities or were no longer needed.
Kaanyr's plots and maneuverings, as well as his luck, led to his survival in the political infighting of Hellgate Keep's tanar'ri and his eventual rise to the command of the surviving forces of Hellgate Keep. He would much rather have quietly operated in secret for years, however, due to a combination of fate and his own desire for secret plots, Vhok, and much of his army, were deep beneath the Keep when, in 1369 DR, The Gatekeeper's Crystal brought much of it crashing down and thus thrusting him to a position that required quick action.

During the War of the Spider Queen, Vhok allied with Duergar mercenary band and the Jaezred Chaulssin against the drow, and he participated in the final and unsuccessful siege of Menzoberranzan, foiled at the eleventh hour due to the timely return of Lolth. Vhok retreated quickly, preserving the greater part of the Scoured Legion, his army of tanarukks, allowing the duergar, who were not yet aware of Lolth's return, to bear the brunt of drow retribution while covering his retreat.
During the events of the Empyrean Odyssey, Kaanyr Vhok, attempted to take control of the city of Sundabar, and was forced to travel to the Elemental Plane of Fire with Zasian, supposedly a cleric of Bane, and a half-dragon named Myshik. From there Vhok and Zasian traveled to Celestia to meet with Aliisza.
