The ancient texts speak of a time before Humans when the Marr twins walked across the lands of Norrath searching for a cause to champion and embrace with their divinity. Innoruuk, already having corrupted the Elves and Kedge, sought to do the same with Tarew Marr's children. This time Innoruuk employed the help of the god of fear, Cazic-Thule. Erollisi Marr saw through Innoruuk's deceptions and escaped the Teir'Dal armies, fleeing to Tunare's children in the Eldarr Forest. Cazic-Thule sent serpents, ghosts, and various frightful creatures to capture Mithaniel Marr. He was too strong of will, and could not be terrorized by the Faceless' minions. They were successful, however, in luring Mithaniel to the swamps of Norrath where an army of Trolls, lizard men, and creatures of forgotten history were able to subdue him. Terris Thule, seeking approval of her father, was able to enter Mithaniel's dreams and steal the gift of life from his body. Morell Thule, seeking to thwart his father's plans, was able to steal the gift of life from his sister, infuriating his father as well as the Prince of Hate. Knowing that his father and sister would soon find him, he divided the gift of life in half and scattered one portion across the swamps of southern Tunaria, which gave life to the Frogloks of the world. He then visited Erollisi Marr in her dreams and supplanted the second half within her. The Elves quickly realized that the daughter of the god among them was pregnant. The Elves escorted her to an uninhabited area of the frozen north were they could hide and protect her. Meanwhile, Morell Thule visited the growing Frogloks in their dreams giving them visions of their imprisoned creator, therefore instilling the sense of honor and valor that would lead the young race to take up weapons and learn the magic necessary to assault Cazic-Thule's realm and free Mithaniel Marr. For many years, the Frogloks battled the Faceless' minions, but they were unable to reach their father. Eventually, a new army arrived on the borders of swamps to aid the Frogloks. They were the Northmen, Barbarians, the children of Erollisi Marr, guided by visions from Morell Thule as well. Together they were successful in freeing Mithaniel Marr after defeating the Avatar of Fear.
Lord Mithaniel Marr's followers believe they are distinguished from the beats of the world by their valor and honor. He, along with his twin sister, created the Barbarians of Norrath and are believed to have sparked the evolution of the Humans from those Barbarians. The twins are also responsible for the Frogloks of the world. Followers of Marr live a life of a high moral standard and devote much of their lives to spreading the word of truth and selflessly giving to charity. Throughout Norrath, they are known as the most noble warriors in the world. These warriors and paladins fight for the sake of all that is good in the world and will do so without fear of death. Many would say that Marr's followers take their cause a bit too seriously, having short patience for humor or mischief.
During the Age of Turmoil, a large temple to The Lightbringer has been built by the Humans of Freeport. It was destroyed when the corrupt Freeport Militia took control of the city, led by Sir Lucan D'Lere. The Frogloks of Guk also believe in the ways of honor and valor taught by Marr.
In most lore, Mithaniel Marr is depicted as a glorious Barbarian paladin in pristine, shining, silver plate mail and crimson cape. Sometimes he shown with flowing blond hair, while other times wearing a winged helmet. He wields a mighty longsword that glows with a blue aura. He towers over mortals in stature, morality, valor, honor, and battle and is the embodiment of all that is good and just.
