Modriq was born in Parthenope, capital of the Kingdom of the Isles of Velar. Between the ages of 18 and 21, he attended the Imperial Academy for the Armed Forces at Mar'theqa. He married Krystyna Herzogin von Hohenstein in 1763 and had two children. He served as a commander of the Sidereal Crown's armed forces for a total of twenty-two years, leading armies in the War of the Velaran Succession in 1769-71 and in the Bernadottic Wars. He returned from these conflicts a war hero, and was popularly acclaimed in Trellin. Modriq eventually retired to the Eth Bandig, living out his later years on his estates near Lindros, and died in Khalet in 1818.
A number of monuments were erected in honour of Prince Modriq during his lifetime, and more were dedicated to him thereafter. An equestrian statue, installed in 1824, bears his name in Khalet's main square. A park in Parthenope is named for him, but plans to erect a column in his honour were dismissed as incendiary by his niece, Tovelindra III, in 1822. One of Cadenza's main roads was renamed Duke of Lindros Avenue in 1772 and bears that name to the present.
