Just over a dozen or so years ago, Cyric was a mortal thief, a rogue on the path toward evil. Then Ao decreed that the powers must walk the earth in mortal form, and Cyric managed to slay one of those gods and assume the victim's portfolio. Later, Cyric also assumed the strength of two other slain powers. Thus did the mortal transform himself from a lowly cross-trader to one of the mightiest bloods in the whole crystal sphere.
Later, he lost control of much of his portfolio to one of his formerly mortal compatriots, Kelemvor, when it became apparent that Cyric was breaking many of Ao's rules. What's more, Cyric drove himself barmy with the creation of a book that bound all who read it to his worship - it seems the sod read it himself. Now he's retreated to Pandemonium to plot a further takeover of the multiverse. He hates Kelemvor and Mystra with a passion, but because he read his own book, Cyric's convinced that he's superior to his fellow powers and doesn't need to waste his anger on them.
His new home is the Shattered Castle (which, in his delusion, he calls "The Castle of the Supreme Throne") and he hopes to draw all of the petitioners of Toril to his realm. The berk hasn't found much success, but he's sure it's just a matter of time before he conquers the entire cosmos with his divine insight.
