During one of Gustacio's weather experiments, Mortegro was struck by a teleport storm and appeared within the Temple of Tolerance, deep in the Frozen North. At the same moment, the Altar of Tolerance was teleported into Gustacio's house.
The ancient Temple negated his spells and made him unable to escape, until the Avatar arrived while gathering the Waters of Chaos to trap the Banes of Chaos.
