Like his comrades, urLii primarily spoke through riddles, though he preferred to do so referring to himself in the third person singular. He was also unusually avaricious, only accepting to help others when offered something in return, and confessed to enjoying teasing uptight individuals like Ordon.
He left his urRu comrades and moved to the Caves of Grot, where he became the caretaker of the Tomb of Relics. There, he befriended Maudra Argot and taught her the art of healing. An extremely private individual, none but Argot knew of his residence in the caves.
During the Arathim Wars, he saved Ordon and Fara from drowning in one of the caves' underground lakes. When Ordon revealed that his mission to the caves was to obtain the Dual Glaive, urLii refused to disclose its location, deeming it "merely a thing of iron and wood, without value in and of itself". He only relented when Fara offered him her talisman, and took them to the Tomb, where he revealed that the Glaive was located in a chamber too narrow for him to enter. He warned Ordon of the dangers present in the chamber, then subsequently goaded Fara into following him.
