Important NPCs Encountered

Captain Omeir
right-aligned image
Captain Omeir

Name: Omeir
Gender: Male
Age: Mature Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (Mayakhur tribe)
Occupation: Captain in service of the Mayakhur Khan, has served as “Bearer of the Sacred Spear” in the Festival of Fire and Song of the year 422 AC.
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral (suspicious, prejudiced)

Special Notes: Omeir harbors an extreme prejudice against elves, blaming them for the death of his son, Hekim. He has threatened Talia Dawnstar with exile from all Mayakhur lands should he catch her misbehaving once more. He has developed a grudging respect for Kaylen Nightstone.

What Omeir never found out was that his son was killed by the group of bandits stationed near Pashin. Ironically it was this same group of strangers that he trusted so little that eradicated his son’s killers.





Yusef
right-aligned image
Yusef, former guard

Name: Yusef
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (Mayakhur tribe)
Occupation: Formerly a guard under Captain Omeir’s command. Dishonorably discharged for failing to obey Omeir’s orders after being tricked by Blainneth (Blyne).
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral (having been deceived once)/Friendly

Special Notes: Yusef is very grateful to Kaylen Nightstone for persuading him not to worry for his pregnant wife, Nuura and for advising him to join the “Company of the Sun”. His innocence has been somewhat damaged by Blyne’s trickery, but he does not regret his decision to have come to Kaylen’s defense.





Besimeh
right-aligned image
Besimeh the merchant

Name: Besimeh
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (Tondoon tribe)
Occupation: Merchant
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Besimeh is a very unorthodox Khurish woman, seeking happiness in the embrace of others of her gender and making her own path in life. She was from the very start attracted to Blainneth and is the first individual to learn about Blyne’s true identity.

Besimeh has rushed to her special friend’s assistance and helped her save Devari/Veralyne. Despite the misgivings of her friends, she is determined to never again part from Blyne.





Jabbal
right-aligned image
“Prince” Jabbal

Name: Jabbal
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (Khur tribe)
Occupation: Noble, Khan’s confidant
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: Jabbal is a notorious womanizer, but can also be quite generous towards his many “cousins”. He sought to incite the Khurish people against the companions at the Festival of Fire and Song, but offered them hospitality and his protection after being persuaded that they were innocent of any attempt to destroy the Standing Stones. He has asked the companions to deliver a letter from the Khan to a merchant in Pashin called Old Ferhan. He has also given them a letter meant for Pashin’s mayor that could increase the amount of steel they would gain for dealing with a group of bandits outside Pashin. Jabbal promised to reward the companions further, if they were to meet him in Ak-Khurman.

The companions eventually found out that Jabbal is secretly working with the Dark Knights occupying Pashin and that he urges the Knights of the Thorn to question them to learn more about the Standing Stones.





Neilah
right-aligned image
Neilah, Jabbal’s “cousin”

Name: Neilah
Gender: Female
Age: Young Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (Mikku tribe)
Occupation: None. Daughter of an influential family in Ak-Khurman
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral?

Special Notes: Neilah has asked Veralyne’s (Devari’s) help to stop Jabbal from “spoiling” her after the Festival of Fire and Song. Her silent refusal has made her lose her faith in people, though she is very grateful to Blainneth for saving her life when her horse was spooked by the griffon. She is very anxious about her future, fearing that she will be unable to find a good husband.





Hashem
right-aligned image
Hashem, Orphan

Name: Hashem
Gender: Male
Age: Adolescent
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (Mayakhur tribe)
Occupation: Isandril’s apprentice
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Hashem has lost his family to a blaze that destroyed a good part of the town of Pashin. He seeks to master fire and seems both very perceptive and interested in magic. He is grateful to Isandril for having shared his rations with him, but disappeared when he offered to give him a letter of recommendation.

The youth was encountered again in the sewers underneath Pashin, where the companions freed him from the web of a giant spider. After restored back to health by the elves residing in the underground sanctuary accessed only through the sewers, Hashem has been accepted as Isandril’s apprentice and temporarily joined the group. The magic inside him is strong, if volatile, and he seems to have an affinity for fire, having witnessed his entire family burn to death because of a fire, which was started by the Knights of the Thorn stationed in Pashin.

Despite the fact that he considers Isandril almost like a father, he asked his Shalafi to allow him to follow the pyromancer Cole, believing that primal sorcery would suit him better than High Sorcery. Isandril fulfilled the boy’s request and the two of them parted amiably.





Ilhem and Rishan
right-aligned image
Ilhem and Rishan

Name: Ilhem and Rishan
Gender: Female and Male
Age: Adolescent and Adult
Race: Humans?
Nationality: Unknown and Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Besimeh’s employees
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral/Positive

Special Notes: Ilhem and Rishan are both Besimeh’s employees and closest friends. There is little they wouldn’t do for her and this is true for Besimeh as well.

They have grown distrustful of Blyne and her sanity and attempted to persuade Besimeh that she is better off without her special friend, though to no avail. In the end the two groups parted ways after Besimeh tasked them with running her mercantile business for her for the time being. She has promised to meet them at the Standing Stones during the next Festival of Fire and Song.





Toad Lady
right-aligned image
Old Woman

Name: Unknown
Gender: Female
Age: Old
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Singer, mourner
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (Standing Stones)
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: This old woman proposed to seek the spirit of Kaylen Nightstone’s son, Rolis, in exchange for an offering to the dead. She urged Kaylen to help the rest of the foreigners at the Festival of Fire and Song when they were accused of trying to destroy the Standing Stones.

right-aligned image

Age: Young Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)

Race: Elf
Nationality: Silvanesti
Occupation: Warrior, griffon rider (Windrider)
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (at the bank of the Silvanesti river)
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased)

Special Notes: This was the rider of the griffon Longfeather, or An’quesse in the language of the Silvanesti elves. He was presumably wounded after attacking a group of bandits near Pashin and killed by a group of poisonous snakes while tending to his wounds. His sister was waiting for him in Pashin.

His body was returned to the outskirts of Pashin, where his sister, Larimielle had a chance to mourn him. Since returning the warrior’s body to the Silvanesti forest was impossible at the time, it was placed inside a boat and allowed to sail down the Thon-Thalas.

Special Notes: One of the famous griffon mounts of the Silvanesti, Longfeather has been without a master ever since her rider died. She is currently following the companions, meant to be reunited with her late master’s sister in Pashin.

Longfeather was indeed reunited with Larimielle Clearbrook, the sister of her rider. The current fate of the griffon is unknown.

Tehar
right-aligned image
Tehar, bodyguard and messenger

Name: Tehar
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Bodyguard of Emilian Togh, Mayor of Pashin
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (south of the Silvanesti river)
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: The companions saved Tehar’s life twice, once when a trio of Nerakese Knights ambushed him south of the Silvanesti river and a second time from a fatal wound dealt to him by Sir Beran Taylor. Despite differences concerning the man’s priorities and notions of duty and honor, Tehar is deeply grateful to the companions and would love to get a chance to repay this debt.





Sir Tresin of Haltigoth
right-aligned image
Tresin of Haltigoth, Knight of the Thorn

Name: Sir Tresin of Haltigoth
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Estwildian
Occupation: Knight of Neraka, Order of the Thorn
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (south of the Silvanesti river)
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: Sir Tresin was one of the three Knights of Neraka tasked with intercepting Tehar. Though the knights’ ambush failed, in the end they accomplished their objective, or so they thought. The young knight appeared especially taken by Lady Veralyne (Devari) and even made a few clumsy attempts to “court” her.

Having been commanded by Dame Romira to personally execute Devari/Veralyne, he attempted to do his duty, but was put to sleep by Blyne’s magic. It is not known if he survived the riot incited by Devari/Veralyne.





Sir Beran Taylor
right-aligned image
Beran Taylor, Knight of the Lily

Name: Sir Beran Taylor
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Nerakese
Occupation: Knight of Neraka, Order of the Lily
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (south of the Silvanesti river)
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: Sir Beran was one of the three Knights of Neraka tasked with intercepting Tehar. Though the knights’ ambush failed, in the end they accomplished their objective, or so they thought.

Sir Beran was responsible for Devari’s/Veralyne’s “safety” during her imprisonment in the Dark Knights’ Enclave. Though she was unable to escape, she managed to steal the knight’s dagger, something that shook Sir Beran’s confidence and made him hate her.





Sir Dyron Bolde
right-aligned image
Dyron Bolde, Knight of the Skull

Name: Sir Dyron Bolde [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Tarsian
Occupation: Knight of Neraka, Order of the Skull
Encountered for the first time in: Khur (south of the Silvanesti river)
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly hostile

Special Notes: Sir Dyron was one of the three Knights of Neraka tasked with intercepting Tehar. He lost his life in the ensuing skirmish, first losing an eye to one of Xihue’s darts and then killed by Talia.





Dame Romira of Palanthas
right-aligned image
Romira of Palanthas, Knight of the Skull

Name: Dame Romira of Palanthas
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Solamnic
Occupation: Knight of Neraka, Order of the Skull, Adjudicator of the Code
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin, the Dark Knights’ Enclave
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: The Adjudicator accepted the “submission” of some of the group’s members, but refused pardoning the rest. Considering them responsible for Sir Dyron’s demise, she is determined to hang them as soon as she can lay her hands on them. Considered to be one of the most accomplished dark mystics and currently commanding the full forces of the Knights of Neraka in Pashin, she is definitely an opponent who should not be underestimated.

Accusing Devari/Veralyne for espionage, subversion, and treason, she condemned her to death by burning at Pashin’s central square.

Dove
right-aligned image
Dove, a courtesan

Name: Dove (Kishra or “Red Dawn” in the tongue of Khur)
Gender: Female
Age: Young Adult
Race: Half-Elf (Qualinesti)
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Courtesan, one of Blackbird’s “little birds”
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly/Neutral

Special Notes: Dove is one of Blackbird’s “little birds”, though she neither enjoys her job, nor is she very good at it. This being something of a sore spot for her, it led to a misunderstanding between her and the companions inside one of the private rooms of the “Wounded Crow” tavern. Aric’s honesty and kindness won her over in the end, and she did her best to try and help the companions locate Pashin’s “lost elves”.





Kite
right-aligned image
Kite, a courtesan

Name: Kite (real name unknown)
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Courtesan, responsible for running the “Wounded Crow” tavern
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin, the “Wounded Crow” tavern
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly/Neutral

Special Notes: Kite’s sharp mind and tongue have earned her Blackbird’s respect and the responsibility of running the “Wounded Crow” tavern. Though pleased with her lot, she never forgot what it means to be one of his “little birds” and tries to help the rest of the courtesans act in a way that won’t get them beaten up or worse.

Kite helped the Blackbird save face and Blyne leave the “Wounded Crow” when the shapeshifter caused a commotion in order to stop Besimeh from agreeing to the Blackbird’s terms.





Crows
right-aligned image
One of the “Crows”

Name: The “Crows” (real names unknown)
Gender: Male
Age: Various ages, most adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (various tribes)
Occupation: Blackbird’s enforcers
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin, the “Wounded Crow” tavern
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: Blackbird’s “Crows” are his enforcers, responsible for looking after the “little birds”, taking their boss’s weekly cut and providing muscle whenever needed. They resent having been intimidated by Tegan and are eager to pay him with the same coin. Having witnessed him secretly entering the sewers of Pashin, they might have found just the right way of doing so.

It is believed that the Crows were ordered to keep an eye on Blyne and Besimeh so that the Blackbird can eventually have his revenge.

The Herald
right-aligned image
The Herald

Name: The Herald (real name unknown)
Gender: Male
Age: Elderly
Race: Human
Nationality: Abanasinian
Occupation: Storyteller
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: The Herald is a legendary figure in Ansalon, a person who claims that his memories are those of Krynn. When some of the patrons of the Five Dragons Inn in Pashin took offense at the Herald’s recount of the Dark Knights’ actions during the War of Souls, it was Devari/Veralyne who managed to defuse the tension. The Herald claimed that Blyne/Blainneth, Devari/Veralyne, Kaylen and Pnoah along with the rest of their companions were chosen by the gods to find the “Queen’s Key”. He especially connected with Blyne/Blainneth and tried to encourage her with the tale of Tanis Half-Elven.





Emaline Yaseth
right-aligned image
Emaline Yaseth

Name: Emaline Yaseth
Gender: Female
Age: Elderly
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Proprietress of the Five Dragons Inn and Tavern
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Emaline Yaseth, also known as the “Dragon Mistress” by both friends and enemies alike, is the proprietress of the best inn in Pashin, the Five Dragons. She runs her business intelligently and effectively and can be terrifying at times, but also has a soft spot for the unlucky and the downtrodden. Emaline was willing to shelter Blyne (in her human guise) and Besimeh from the Blackbird’s revenge, but refused to take a more energetic role in stopping Devari’s/Veralyne’s execution at the hands of the Knights of Neraka.





Jeljin
right-aligned image
Jeljin

Name: Jeljin
Gender: Female
Age: Young adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Barmaid at the Five Dragons Inn and Tavern
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Jeljin is Emaline Yaseth’s youngest daughter and one of the barmaids of the Five Dragons Inn. She is especially talented at doing the hair of her sisters and has formed a special friendship with Devari/Veralyne. She came to her aid after Devari/Veralyne managed to cause a riot during her execution and led her to Old Omar’s Oddities and Klaudia Lorn.





Father Micah ibn-G’ar
right-aligned image
Father Micah ibn-G’ar

Name: Father Micah ibn-G’ar
Gender: Male
Age: Elderly
Race: Human
Nationality: Khur (unknown tribe)
Occupation: Resident Priest of Ziris/Zivilyn at the Temple of Stars in Pashin
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Father Micah ibn-G’ar was approached by both Kaylen and Blyne/Blainneth. He is kind and compassionate and eager to share his knowledge and wisdom with anyone who asks him for advice. He is concerned about the disease that seems to have taken root in Pashin and the fact that the numbers of the lepers in the streets appear to be growing. He remains unaware of the lepers’ true identity.

Naelathan
right-aligned image
Naelathan

Name: Naelathan (family name and House unknown)
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Elf
Nationality: Silvanesti
Occupation: Shaylin Moonborn’s agent, scout, occasionally thief (former occupation unknown)
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: Naelathan is something of a riddle. He is the one who discovered the underground chamber that serves as a temporary shelter for his people and the one who is usually entrusted with the more distasteful and dangerous tasks that need to be done. Though obviously devoted to the elven refugees and their leader, he doesn’t seem to be liked or trusted by his kin. Perhaps this is the reason for his sour disposition and cold pragmatism. Though highly suspicious of the companions initially, he now deigns to give them the benefit of doubt. Barely.





Larimielle Clearbrook
right-aligned image
Larimielle Clearbrook

Name: Larimielle Clearbrook of House Protector
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Elf
Nationality: Silvanesti
Occupation: Kirath Captain
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Larimielle Clearbrook used to be a kirath captain before the fall of Silvanesti and still is a skillful warrior and unsurpassed archer, though her serious arm injury currently restricts her greatly. She is deeply grateful to the companions for allowing her to honor her brother, Ariellan, in death and regrets any unkind words she said to Aric. She feels responsible for An’quesse, her late brother’s mount, though what exactly she intends to do with the griffon remains unclear. Her brother’s death has taught her a valuable lesson and she is determined to not let recklessness lead her to a premature death.





Angelyn Starsinger
right-aligned image
Angelyn Starsinger

Name: Angelyn Starsinger of House Cleric
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Elf
Nationality: Silvanesti
Occupation: Priestess of MishakalQuenesti Pah
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Angelyn Starsinger is a devoted priestess of Quenesti Pah and, as is usually the case with those who serve the Blue Lady, an experienced healer and midwife. Gentle of word and touch, she is frustrated by her inability to understand and counter the strange malady known as Sunblight that afflicts the elven refugees. And yet she doesn’t lose hope. She knows that the returned goddess will heal them… eventually.





Shaylin Moonborn
right-aligned image
Shaylin Moonborn

Name: Shaylin Moonborn of House Mystic
Gender: Female
Age: Elderly
Race: Elf
Nationality: Silvanesti
Occupation: Leader of the elven refugees in Pashin, white robe mage, formerly a member of the Conclave
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Shaylin Moonborn is something of a legend among the elven refugees, especially those originally living in Sithelnost. A wise and powerful white-robe mage and formerly a member of the Conclave of wizards, she has assumed the mantle of leadership and does her best to help the people that depend on her survive. What seemed like a shelter from the Dark Knights’ persecution has proved to be a deathtrap and Shaylin is desperately looking for a way to get her kin out of Pashin undetected. The appearance of Isandril has presented her with a possible solution and she has offered to become the younger elf’s teacherShalafi.





Nelessa Wideleaf
right-aligned image
Nelessa Wideleaf

Name: Nelessa Wideleaf of House Artisan
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Elf
Nationality: Silvanesti
Occupation: Currently none, formerly gold- and silversmith
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Nelessa Wideleaf, formerly known as the Thrice-Blessed, has lost all three of her three children and recently her spouse as well. Desperate to have something to remember them by, she has begged Tegan to retrieve from the bandits camping outside Pashin three jade figurines that her husband made for her in memory of their children.

Kelwick and Mayleaf
right-aligned image
Kelwick and Mayleaf

Name: Kelwick (the father) and Mayleaf (the daughter), the “Nightstalkers”
Gender: Male (the father) and female (the daughter)
Age: Adult (the father) and child (the daughter)
Race: Afflicted Kender
Nationality: None, formerly living in Kendermore
Occupation: Mayleaf is one of the famous kender Nightstalkers. Kelwick pretends to be one and is also a thief.
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Kelwick is one of the many unfortunate kender who were forced to leave their homes in Kendermore when Malystryx the Red turned it to ash. He lost everything that day and has been wandering ever since, looking for a place to call home. His young daughter, Mayleaf, is his pride and joy and he will go to incredible lengths to protect her from a hostile world. The two of them worked in Pashin for a Khurish merchant called Barat, but his oppressive manner made them leave, stealing from him before vanishing. Arrested by an Ergothian bounty hunter called Hogart, their fate appeared to be sealed. Thankfully, Kaylen Nightstone vowed to free the kender and lead them to a place where both could live in peace. Whether she succeeded is unknown.





Hogart
right-aligned image
Hogart

Name: Hogart
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Ergothian
Occupation: Bounty Hunter
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: Hogart is a bounty hunter of some repute. His heart is said to be as black as his skin and he is very effective at what he does. He is currently active in Pashin, taking advantage of the chaos that ensued after the Dark Knights’ occupation of the city. His latest contract by a Khurish merchant called Barat was to arrest a kender thief and imposter named Kelwick, which he did, locating the kender as he sought to deal with the companions who were looking for a Nightstalker. The companions tried to trick him into visiting the house of Old Ferhan, but the sly Ergothian realized it before they were able to accomplish anything. Deciding to settle for the reward he already had in hand, he led the kender fugitives back to Barat.





Maez
right-aligned image
Maez, one of Hogart’s men

Name: Maez
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khurish, tribe unknown
Occupation: Bounty Hunter (on occasion)
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: Maez and the rest of the men that Hogart hired in Pashin lack their employer’s experience and cunning, but they are strong and healthy and most importantly know how to follow orders. Their latest contract has been arresting a kender thief and imposter called Kelwick. They are now eager to spend the steel they will earn once the Khurish merchant Barat gets what he wants. The kender’s fate doesn’t concern them. He has earned his punishment after all.

Old Ferhan
right-aligned image
Old Ferhan

Name: Old Ferhan
Gender: Male
Age: Elder
Race: Human
Nationality: Khurish (Mikku tribe)
Occupation: A merchant of carpets and rugs, possibly a spy for Prince Jabbal and/or the Knights of Neraka in Pashin
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: A quiet and respected merchant of carpets and rugs in Pashin, Old Ferhan might have another identity, a secret one. He may well be Prince Jabbal’s spy and an informer of the Knights of Neraka occupying Pashin. The letter from Jabbal that was given to the companions seems to suggest this, though nothing the old merchant has said and done appears to be suspicious or harmful. The mystery remains unresolved, for the companions fled Pashin, leaving Old Ferhan with a letter of farewell from Blainneth.





Aryf
right-aligned image
Aryf

Name: Aryf
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khurish, tribe unknown
Occupation: Old Ferhan’s aide and “nephew” (adopted son)
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: Aryf is one of Old Ferhan’s “nephews”, or adopted sons. This is a young man of few words who seems to be utterly loyal to his “uncle”. One of the few men who didn’t fall for Veralyne’s charms.





Reyan
right-aligned image
Reyan

Name: Reyan
Gender: Male
Age: Child
Race: Human
Nationality: Khurish, tribe unknown
Occupation: Old Ferhan’s aide and “nephew” (adopted son)
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: Reyan is the younger of Old Ferhan’s “nephews”, or adopted sons. Serving as a messenger for his “uncle”, he nonetheless was unable to catch up with the mysterious woman, in truth Blyne, who gave Old Ferhan the farewell letter from Blainneth. Whether this failure to do his “uncle’s” bidding had any consequences for the boy, is unknown.





Brannik the Horsemaster
right-aligned image
Brannik the Horsemaster

Name: Brannik
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Centaur
Nationality: Plains of Dust, but has adopted the Khurish way of life
Occupation: Trader of horses, donkeys, mules and other mounts
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: The most famous horse trader in Pashin, Brannik the Horsemaster is respected by all for his unique understanding of horses. Though originally from the Plains of Dust, his years in Khur have made him indistinguishable from the natives. He is known both for his free spirit and his honest deals, though he will not shy away from overcharging someone who thinks that they know horses better than he does.





Blackbird
right-aligned image
The Blackbird

Name: Blackbird (real name unknown)
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Half-Ogre
Nationality: Unknown
Occupation: Proprietor of the “Wounded Crow”, informer, procurer
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: One of the most powerful and vindictive individuals in Pashin, the Blackbird is the proprietor of the “Wounded Crow'' and the one behind the greatest network of informants and criminals in the city. He has his fingers in many pies and barely anything happens that he won’t hear about. The city’s occupation by the Knights of Neraka threatens his prominence, however, since the Dark Knights refuse to involve themselves with a petty criminal. The incident with Blyne and Besimeh at the “Wounded Crow” has left the Blackbird furious and with a burning desire to take his revenge on the two women.





Klaudia Lord
right-aligned image
Klaudia Lorn

Name: Klaudia Lorn
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Half-Ogre
Nationality: Khurish, tribe unknown
Occupation: Apothecary, proprietor of “Old Omar’s Oddities”, possibly a member of the Legion of Steel
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Klaudia Lorn is a gentle soul, eager to help those who come to her in need of assistance. Being a skillful apothecary, the proprietor of “Old Omar’s Oddities” uses her powders, potions and ointments to heal wounds and soothe the pain others have caused. Though not certain, Devari suspects that she is one of the few remaining members of the Legion of Steel in Pashin and worries that the half-ogre’s involvement in her escape might get her into trouble with the Knights of Neraka.

Lady Shaylin’s agents later report that Klaudia Lorn is seen getting arrested by the Dark Knights of Pashin. Her fate is unknown, though there is hope that the half-ogre still lives.

Kay
right-aligned image
Kay

Name: Kay
Gender: Female
Age: Nestling
Race: Vulture (unidentified)
Nationality: None (native land is Khur)
Occupation: Aric’s companion
Encountered for the first time in: Hatched at the elven sanctuary beneath Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Kay is Aric’s unintentional victim and dear companion. After killing the mother that was brooding the eggs and causing one of them to fall off the nest and be destroyed, the young Abanasinian managed to save the other from hitting the rocky ground. Seeking atonement he took excellent care of the egg until the little bird hatched inside the elven sanctuary beneath Pashin. Ever since that day Aric has proven himself as devoted to the chick as her mother would have been. Kay has a scattering of feathers as red as fire or blood, something her mother lacked as far as Aric can tell, but the color will probably change into a red-brown resembling clay the older the little bird gets.

Kay’s temperature appears to be unnaturally high and strangely enough some of the bird’s feathers are of a bright red and blue color. The pair of giant eagles of the Harikas Mountains warn Aric that the nestling is afflicted by some malady and offer to look for the Dunesmaster in the hopes that she might be able to heal it.





Startrail and Evenfall
right-aligned image
Startrail and Evenfall

Name: Startrail and Evenfall
Gender: Female/Mare (Startrail) and Male/Gelding (Evenfall)
Age: Adult
Race: Horse (riding)
Nationality: None (native land is Khur)
Occupation: Mounts
Encountered for the first time in: Pashin
Disposition towards the PCs: Friendly

Special Notes: Startrail and Evenfall were the horses Blyne/Blainneth, Devari/Veralyne, and Pnoah purchased from Brannik the Horsemaster at Pashin’s Bazaar. There was definitely a special connection forming between mistresses and mounts, which unfortunately never fully developed, since the horses were taken by force by the Knights of Neraka occupying Pashin. Their current fate is unknown.

Pegrin
right-aligned image
Pegrin

Name: Pegrin [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Unknown
Occupation: Bandit leader, formerly a squire of the Knights of Neraka
Encountered for the first time in: Camp on “Bandit Hill” near Pashin, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly hostile

Special Notes: Once a squire of the Knights of Neraka, Pegrin defected, no longer willing to tolerate their strict discipline. Within a short amount of time he managed to attract men who were like him. The newly formed bandit group, based on a hill near Pashin, waylaid elves escaping from the south, robbing them and even killing them when they didn’t readily cooperate. The companions put an end to Pegrin’s reign of terror, though the man himself was killed by Cole, a pyromancer he had recruited and often oppressed.





Derg
right-aligned image
Derg

Name: Derg [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Half-Elf (Silvanesti)
Nationality: Unknown
Occupation: Bandit
Encountered for the first time in: Camp on “Bandit Hill” near Pashin, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly hostile

Special Notes: A half-elf with a sour disposition, Derg’s only friends were Pegrin and his dog, Malys. His skill at stealth made Pegrin deploy him as a scout and assassin, while his Silvanesti heritage fooled many of the elven refugees that the bandits were in fact watching over them. Derg was killed by Isandril when the companions attacked the bandits at their base.





Malys
right-aligned image
Malys

Name: Malys
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Dog (Mastiff)
Nationality: None
Occupation: Derg’s pet (formerly)
Encountered for the first time in: Camp on “Bandit Hill” near Pashin, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral

Special Notes: Malys was Derg’s loyal mastiff, always following his orders and attacking his enemies as fiercely as any dragon. After Derg’s death Malys was approached by Xihue, who showed the animal respect and tended to her wounds. Not willing to stay with those who killed her master, Malys left the camp and disappeared in the desert. Her current fate is unknown.





Cole
right-aligned image
Cole

Name: Cole
Gender: Male
Age: Young Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Unknown
Occupation: Pyromancer, formerly bandit
Encountered for the first time in: Camp on “Bandit Hill” near Pashin, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: Neutral/Friendly (Zendra)

Special Notes: Cole is a young sorcerer with a gift for fire-magic. Tempted by Pegrin’s promises he joined his group of bandits, but once he realized how his brothers-in-arms earned their steel immediately regretted it. Too afraid of what Pegrin would do to him, if he left, he remained at the bandit camp, tolerating the bandits’ abuse. Zendra’s appearance gave him hope, while the companions’ attack on the bandit camp gave him the opportunity to settle his score with Pegrin once and for all. Cole begged Zendra to follow him and Hashem to Pashin or anywhere else, but she declined, even though he had used his magic to save her life. Disappointed, Cole left without a word. He still hopes that Zendra will eventually realize her mistake and change her mind.





Namij
right-aligned image
Namij, one of Pegrin’s men

Name: Namij [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Human
Nationality: Khurish, tribe unknown
Occupation: Bandit, one of Pegrin’s men
Encountered for the first time in: Camp on “Bandit Hill” near Pashin, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly hostile

Special Notes: One of the men joining Pegrin’s group, Namij never felt bad about earning his steel by robbing and killing elven refugees who couldn’t defend themselves. Neither particularly intelligent, nor a great warrior, the man never really distinguished himself in the eyes of the bandit leader. He was eventually killed by Aric after begging for his life.





Torig de-Voros
right-aligned image
Torig de-Voros

Name: Torig de-Voros [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Minotaur
Nationality: Minotaur Empire (Kothas)
Occupation: Scout of the imperial army, sergeant
Encountered for the first time in: Khurish desert, north of the Ambeon (Silvanesti) border
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly neutral

Special Notes: The leader of a small group of imperial scouts sent to study the lay of the land and whatever defenses the Khurish people might have north of the border with Ambeon, Torig’s had orders that specified that his group was to remain unseen. Impressed by Xihue’s knowledge of minotaur custom, Torig proposed a duel to the Alan-Atu to find out who of the two Sargas, the minotaur god, favored above the other. Though fighting both bravely and skillfully, Torig de-Voros was killed by Xihue.





Merva es-Arman
right-aligned image
Merva es-Arman

Name: Merva es-Arman
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Race: Minotaur
Nationality: Minotaur Empire (Mithas)
Occupation: Scout of the imperial army
Encountered for the first time in: Khurish desert, north of the Ambeon (Silvanesti) border
Disposition towards the PCs: Hostile

Special Notes: A member of Torig de-Voros’ group of scouts and second in command, Merva honored the wish of her superior even after his death and allowed the companions to leave unharmed after swearing to Sargas that they would not reveal the minotaurs’ presence in Khur. She has vowed to avenge the fallen Torig de-Voros bei slaying Xihue, should she ever encounter him again.

Captain Cralik
right-aligned image
Captain Cralik

Name: Cralik [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Draconian, Bozak
Nationality: None
Occupation: Captain of a company of draconians in the Harikas Mountains
Encountered for the first time in: Harikas Mountains, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly hostile

Special Notes: Captain of a company of draconians, which used to belong to the Green Dragonarmy, Cralik’s ultimate goal was to find a way for him and his men to reach faraway Teyr safely. He hoped that they could start a new life there as citizens of an all-draconian nation. Knowing that he would need much steel to bribe his way through the lands of humans and ogres, he orchestrated the theft of the eggs of a mated pair of giant eagles living in the Harikas, hoping to sell them to some Khurish lord. When the companions entered the draconians’ lair, determined to return the eggs to their parents, Cralik didn’t survive the encounter.





Serahk
right-aligned image
Serahk

Name: Serahk [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Draconian, Kapak
Nationality: None
Occupation: Infiltrator, soldier and assassin in Cralik’s company
Encountered for the first time in: Harikas Mountains, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased), formerly hostile

Special Notes: The right hand draconian of Cralik, Serahk stayed loyal to his captain ever since the Green Dragonarmy disbanded at the end of the War of the Lance. He was responsible for distracting Finwalin so that a group of Baaz could reach the giant eagle nest and steal the eggs within. Once the companions defeated the draconians, he paid for his role with his life, killed by the great birds of prey.





Griizat
right-aligned image
Griizat

Name: Griizat
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Race: Draconian, Baaz
Nationality: None
Occupation: Soldier in Cralik’s company
Encountered for the first time in: Harikas Mountains, Khur
Disposition towards the PCs: Unknown, formerly hostile

Special Notes: One of Cralik’s Baaz soldiers, he was responsible for guarding Talia, while his captain negotiated with the companions. Unable to tolerate the kender’s antics, he eventually attacked Talia and joined his brethren in their ill-fated fight against the group of heroes. Even though he attempted to hide and escape the draconians’ lair, relying on the kender’s magical boots and cloak to keep him safe, he was apprehended in the end. After shamelessly begging for his life, he was pleasantly surprised to hear that Aric and Talia were in fact willing to spare him, and lost no time vanishing somewhere in the Harikas Mountains. His current fate and disposition towards the companions is unknown.





Wyranthrax
right-aligned image
Wyranthrax’s remains

Name: Wyranthrax [deceased]
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown (Venerable?)
Race: Dragon, copper
Nationality: Unknown
Occupation: Collector of valuables
Encountered for the first time in: Lair in the Harikas Mountains
Disposition towards the PCs: None (deceased)

Special Notes: Wyranthrax was a copper dragon who disobeyed Paladine and remained on Ansalon even after the Dark Queen was banished from Krynn at the end of the Third Dragon War. It wasn’t long before he regretted his decision and he tried to fill his loneliness with the most valuable and exquisite items of art and magic he could find. He perished during the Cataclysm when a part of his lair’s ceiling collapsed, burying him underneath tons of rock.
