Pharos was the most powerful elven high mage among the elves of Tethir, Darthiir Wood, and Shilmista[2] and the one who trapped the genies Calim and Memnon in the Calimemnon Crystal and ended the Era of Skyfire.[2][1] He became a baelnorn and guarded over the Crystal for nearly 9,000 years.[1]

As of 1374 DR, Pharos still resided in the Spinning Keep of Siri'wadjen. He cast illusions and set traps throughout the Keep to prevent anyone from ever finding the Crystal.[1]
