Contemplative and inquisitive, especially concerning the Weave, Quthnorak was willing to collaborate with even non-illithids when it came to arcane matters. He enjoyed reclining in a pool of briny fluid to relax.
Like most mind flayers, Quthnorak had an affinity for psionics and could readily control the minds of others. Despite this, Quthnorak had an abiding interest and talent for the arcane art. He developed his innate powers as a sorcerer to the point that he could cast spells such as haste and alter self.
A cordial rivalry was established between Quthnorak and the beholder, Sekrr. Both of them had taken up residence in Vournoth's Mire and besides working on occasional magical projects or defending the mire against intruders, they rarely interacted.
By 1372 DR, Quthnorak had made Vournoth's Mire his home along with a beholder called Sekrr. Though they usually left each other to their own devices, on occasion they would work together on some project or to defend their joint lair.
During the Silence of Lolth in 1372 DR, after the nearby city of Maerimydra was destroyed by the forces of Kurgoth Hellspawn, Quthnorak created a device to experiment with the Weave disruption that emanated from the Undying Temple.
