It is not common to hear his name without his subtitle. Earning his title (The illusionist) through the combination of his holograms and teleportation he can make it look like he is anywhere and everywhere. At a young age he yearned for fame and fortune due to his family being poor. His father was gone for months at a time looking for jobs to do from town to town sending money home. He started small with corner shows. Breathing fire, eating strange foods, and ripping/ repairing personal items. As the crowd grew his show had to as well. Adding disappearing acts and escape artistry put him over the top.

He soon found himself putting on shows for royal families, and high end establishments. He always remembered where he came from, and when he became too expensive for towns to afford his show he offered trades for his services. Corvo was able to learn many new spells and incantations this way. During a tour in a demon plain he was offered his most exclusive job yet. Abraxus is throwing a party for the return of his daughter, and wants Corvo to be the nights entertainment. This is an offer he can’t refuse. He has done a few demon parties before, but nothing to this extent. He knows he will have to pull out all the stops for this one.

Corvo gets there to see a ball room filled with all sorts of demons. They are all dancing around and enjoying themselves. Corvo makes his way to the center of the room and makes his grand entrance.
“Welcome ladies and gentlemen to this wonderful event. We are here to celebrate the return of the great Ananta.” Corvo teleports to the stage." And until she gets here I am tonight’s entertainment. I am here tonight to show you demons things you have never witnessed before. I know most of you know how to teleport but can you make others disappear with a snap of your hand? Any willing volunteers? " As Corvo goes on with his show it seems to be going flawless. The crowd loves his act. It looks like even Abraxus is coming down from his thrown to watch the show.

What he was really doing is starting the revolt. As soon as the other saw Abraxus making his move the rest made theirs. Corvo couldn’t hold them all off and eventually was taken hostage. Abraxus showed him the wall of capture stones. There were at least 15 of them showing different groups of adventures fighting demons for their life. Abraxus pointed out one capture stone out in particular. There was a large group fighting a pale figure who was able to create multiples of himself. As he watched all but 2 get slain the rest of the party was celebrating their deaths. He watched the 2 survivors walk through another portal, only leading to a fiery pit. Abraxus told his guards that were holding Corvo to throw him with them. They will all be dead soon. Corvo was dragged to a portal and was thrown into it. Left to think on his feet he now must figure out how to use his preforming skills in combat, or die.
