Kalah was hired as the Athkatla circus' illusionist; he was performing onstage when his spell fizzled and the audience started laughing at his ineptitude. This fueled Kalah's anger, who somehow transformed the tent's interior into a palace of shadow, full of malevolent illusions and Giant Spiders. Kalah himself took the appearance of an Ogre Mage and killed most of the spectators and personnel in revenge for laughing at him, leaving only few alive:
- Aerie, who was turned into an ogre
- Hannah, who was turned into a giant spider
- Quayle, who was turned into a mustard jelly
Upon defeating him, the illusions cast over the Circus tent will fall apart. Kalah will show no remorse for what he has done, cursing Gorion's Ward's party for defeating him in his dying breath. Where he got his powers from will remain unknown.
Something terrible has happened at the circus, and Gorion's Ward and their party may choose to investigate.
