Kern Miltiades Desanea was born in 1352 DR and was named the Hammerseeker before his birth on the day the Hammer of Tyr was lost to the evil god Bane and his dark servant, the Hammerwarder.[2]


Due to his mother Shal Bal casting many powerful spells while pregnant with Kern, Kern became "anti-magic", meaning that most magic would have no effect on him unless he concentrated on having his anti-magic barrier lowered.[1]
