Esher is a D'ni archivist who survived the Fall of D'ni in 9400 DE (1744 CE) by fleeing to the Age of Noloben.
He was not welcomed by the non-human native inhabitants, the Bahro, but was able to survive there because the Bahro were under the control of the D'ni. Esher built a laboratory in that Age and studied the Bahro extensively, performing unpleasant experiments on them. Eventually he learned their technique for linking at will, and learned about the Tablet that could give him full control over their powers.
Believing himself to be the Grower prophesied in the writings of the Watcher, Esher desired to obtain the extraordinary power of the Bahro - although he considered it perverted - and use it to restore D'ni to its former glory. He also scoffed at the efforts of Yeesha and the DRC, none of whom were pure D'ni, to rebuild the City and the civilization. There is evidence that he met with Marie Sutherland of the DRC some time before the Caverns were abandoned in 2004, but there is no additional information regarding this meeting or any follow-up action taken by the DRC.
In order to claim the Tablet, Esher helped guide the Stranger throughout the Ages that held the Slates, while urging him/her to hand him the Tablet once he/she releases it. However, the Stranger saw through him, and gave the Tablet back to the Bahro where it belonged. Once the Bahro were freed, two of them almost immediately captured Esher and brought him before Yeesha in Releeshahn, wanting to know what to do with the man who wanted to enslave them. Yeesha, although deeming herself unworthy to give the Bahro orders anymore, permitted them to do with him "like what the Great would do with the Least." Esher was then sent away, screaming in rage before facing his fate.
