The Prince of Hate, jealous of Tunare's creation of the Elves and enraged by his exclusion in the pact formed by the gods during The Age of Scale, kidnapped the royal Elves of Takish Hiz and proceeded to twist and corrupt them to his will. Thus were born the Dark Elves of Norrath. His legion of followers is not limited to just the Dark Elves though. During the Age of Turmoil, there was a faction of Humans living below the city of Freeport that honored him. He is also reponsible for the creation of the luggalds, believed to be corrupted Kedge, which were first discovered by Norrathians during the Age of Turmoil on Broken Skull Island off the southern coast of Antonica. The Broken Skull clan of Trolls are devoted followers of Innoruuk, as are many other Troll Shaman and Shadow Knights.
Innoruuk's realm, the Plane of Hate, was left open to mortals as a consequence of his own intervention in world of Norrath. During the Age of Turmoil, there was a great battle that took place in Kithicor Forest. It is regarded as the bloodiest war in the history of Norrath. The Dark Elves, along with their Ogre and Troll friends, formed an army they referred to as the Obliteration. Their intent was to control the northern trade route between Qeynos and Freeport. To do this, they would need to sack High Pass at the base of the Serpent's Spine mountains. A coalition of Elves, Dwarves, and Humans marched into the woods from High Pass led by the champion of Tunare, Firiona Vie. They were met by an army led by Neriak's most decorated warrior, Laarthik K'Shin, and his pupil, the daughter of Innoruuk himself, Lanys T'Vyl. When it became clear that Dark Elves would fail in their attempt to claim High Pass, the Prince of Hate entered the mortal realm to turn the tides. Firiona Vie was saved by the grace of Tunare, while Lanys T'Vyl was summoned to the safety of the Plane of Hate. The forgotten souls that perished in the battle still wander the forest every night.
Innoruuk has also made pacts with several mortals, including Venril Sathir, the Iksar Lich King, and Sir Lucan D'Lere, the Overlord of Freeport.
Almost the entire Dark Elven race sees The Prince of Hate as their true father. They trust in him that hate is the driving force in the universe. Their devotion to hate has led them to believe love is simply a means for the weak-minded fools of the world who are too scared to take what they want. Spite is the only true way to overpower your enemies. Innoruuk's children believe in their dark hearts that if they could combine their hate collectively, they could destroy Norrath.
In most lore, Innoruuk is depicted as a tall, lanky, hunched-over Troll-like man with an elongated nose and pointy ears. While most of his skin is green, his hands and feet fade into an almost purple shade of blue. His clothing consists of a black tunic with a blood red cape.

Innoruuk makes his home in the Plane of Hate. He is the father of Lanys T'Vyl, the goddess of envy, and is is allied with Rallos Zek and Cazic-Thule. Tunare, Quellious, Mithaniel Marr, and Erollisi Marr are his sworn enemies. He is one of several gods who have returned to Norrath in the Age of Destiny.
