He was a shy and quiet child, overshadowed by his aggressive older brothers. His genious was recognised after he entered Galepath University. There he wrote several major revolutionary scientific treatises; the most famous of them proves that the world actually stands on the head of an enormous troll rather than on the back of a giant turtle.
After his graduation he turned to art. His brother Dimwit's personal militia brought noblemen from every province to his studio to have their portraits painted.
He painted a series of his and his sibling's portraits along with their personalities, a project which took 17 years. He started with his own self-portrait in 766 GUE finishing with his Coronation Portrait of King Dimwit Flathead 783 GUE.
During his later years he became senile; his style was compared to how a Borphee baker flings dough into a hot oven to make Frobolli Cakes. His famous unfinished work Obstructed View of Fjord was lost in his studio under several layers of splattered paint.
