After Gotoh the White Sage founded Khadein, he took some students as his personal pupils; Gharnef and Miloah who were among the best under his teachings. Despite his considerable talents, Gotoh grew wary of Gharnef's wrathful and compassion-less nature, and instead chose to appoint Miloah as his heir. Gharnef was outraged and overcome by jealousy on hearing this decision, and as an act of vengeance he stole the Darksphere from Gotoh's safe-keeping and fled Khadein. Soon after the War of Shadows began, Gharnef engaged Miloah in a battle and murdered him, seizing control of Khadein.

- "Wendell: You still don't understand my decision, do you? Indeed, as a mage, your power surpasses mine. But you lack compassion. That is why I did not grant you Excalibur.
Ellerean: ... Compassion...?
Wendell: I had decided that you were to be my successor when the time came. To think you would harbor a grudge towards me... Does that not make you the same as Gharnef?
Ellerean: The same as Gharnef...? Teacher! What are you saying?
Wendell: Ellerean, listen to me... Gharnef, along with Pontifex Miloah, were Lord Gotoh's best pupils. But Lord Gotoh saw Gharnef's weakness, and so he left Khadein and the Aura tome to Pontifex Miloah. Gharnef, overcome by jealousy, stole the Darksphere from Lord Gotoh, and created the Imhullu tome. As a result... His heart was trapped within the Darksphere for all eternity. Wrath and envy led him to ruin. Do you understand now, Ellerean...?" — Wendell and Ellerean, Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem
- "Nyna: Marth, have you ever heard of Pontifex Miloah?
Marth: The one who defended Akaneia with the power of Aura? Of course; he and his magic are famous! But... I read Miloah died in a battle with Gharnef, soon after the fiend sold his soul to Dolhr..." — Nyna and Marth, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
