Cazuza was born in a tiny building in Arius, the Gnomish homeland.
Sadly, his mother had died in childbirth. Clasping her hand as she lay dieing, his father promised her that he would take care of their son and only child, and try to bring out the best in him. He would teach him everything he knew so that Cazuza could one day pass this knowledge down to his sons and daughters.
Never given the chance to know his mother, Cazuza's youth was spent learning from his father the various skills a Gnome needed to survive in Draia. He began training in such essential skills as Alchemy, Potioning, and even some weak forms of Magic.
Cazuza never obtained all of his father's knowledge and skills, however. Tragically, his father died whilst exploring the feared lands of Hulda, and Cazuza never heard from him thereafter. His father's famous Skunk hat was the most important object in which his father had passed into his possession, and so he wore it everyday.
Stricken with grief at the loss of both his parents, Cazuza dedicated his life to the aquisition of knowledge. He vowed that he would master every skill and learn how to make every item, so that when his time came, he would be able to pass all of his knowledge down to his descendants.
