Phelan was a Captain under Ercate Sorsbrent. During the Great War he managed to capture the Azure Mosque of Zanzifos, though Xalmor Windrunner mortally wounded him in the process. His forces took the elf prisoner and attempted to hold him for randsom, but Louis Oudinot killed Xalmor. In the ensuing chaos his forces were killed. Phelan himself retreated and succumbed to his wounds.
