In 1370 DR, Sythillis along with Cyrvisnea, led an army of goblins, kobolds, ogres, hill giants and worshipers of Cyric in attacks upon southern Amn. At the end of their campaign, they assaulted the city of Murann and captured gold from Maztica. The army numbered in almost 3,000 soldiers. As of 1374 DR, the force still inhabited the city.
While he is a renowned leader, Sothillis is greatly feared for his cruel actions.
With mottled green skin and jet black hair, Sythillis is a giant among even the ogre-magi, standing just under 16 feet (4.8m) tall and weighing nearly two tons. His short, red horns are encircled in mithral-laced arcane runes.
In Baldur's Gate 1 a letter from the Iron Throne leader Rieltar to Davaeorn references the "Sythillisian uprising" in Amn as a reason why Amn will not act to stop the Iron Crisis.
In Baldur's Gate 2, a player can be rewarded with a shield from Madulf, (for brokering an alliance between Madulf's group and the people of Imnesvale,) who claims it is from Sythillis' army.

According to a tavern rumor, Sothillis was also a Bhaalspawn whom was killed by a fire giant (presumably Yaga-Shura). Obviously, this is non-canonical as Sothillis is still active well into 1374 DR.
FRCS lists this character as being named Sythillis, with his empire being referred to as the Sythillisian Empire. In the Power of Faerûn, the sourcebook calls him Sothillis and makes reference to the Sothillisian Empire.
