Verner lived with nine other non-human children in Madame Delilah's Home for Orphaned Children in Hillsfar until First Lord Torin Nomerthal proclaimed again the Great Law of Humanity, expelling all non-humans. Luckily, Verner and the others were housed by Ebenz Farbough and Bea Farbough, two farmers without children, in a farmhouse near the city.
Verner lived there for two years until the Rage of Demons[as of when?], developing a bond with the goat Jovee. At that time, Jovee was in an unusual state. Some adventurers who happened to near the farmhouse were asked to help but Jovee give birth to demonic goats.
