Before the events of the story, Zamaran was a scholar living on the Mainland who used to be a adventurer. One day when he was out adventuring for the Everlight, he got into an accident and lost his sense of sight. He decided to quit adventuring and took a interest in teaching and became the teacher of Sven. At one point, Zamaran got into a argument with Sven about the existence of Everlight, and this caused Zamaran to expel Sven. He later met Norma Beatty and took a disliking to her after finding out she too was a believer of the Everlight.
