Temple Personages


Lamedella Frusk
Divine Hand of the Font • Rank 10
No-nonsense and with a very pointed personality, Divine Hand Lamedella Frusk takes her charge of the Font of Knowledge very seriously. Unlike many high clergy in the city of Waterdeep, she seems to eschew political meanderings and the sort of social tides that the powerful of the city are inevitably swept up in. Rumors abound with what Lamedella actually uses all her time for, from claims that she's a Harper to speculation about her health.
Loremaster Shilvarl Narenuin
Loremaster • Rank 6
Redheaded and given to extensive and often wild pontification, Loremaster Shilvarl is one of the main Oghman clergy loremasters who interact with the public. While most other of the priesthood have important tasks that require them to remain behind the scenes, Shilvarl is always out front, busy, and charming. As such he is the Divine Hand's first choice to act as representative for the temple to important organizations and individuals outside the temple.
Elborekk Stronquill
Priest Illuminator • Rank 5
One of Deneir's clergy, Elborekk is a half-orc wizard who came to Waterdeep some five years ago with a single goal: to learn wizardry. He presented himself to the Watchful Order, but could not pay the fees and no one would take him on for free. He met Aka there, however, and the strange foxman introduced him to some of the wizard-clergy at the Font of Knowledge, who agreed to take him on. He not only learned the Art, but also took oaths as a priest of Deneir.

Temple Defenders

Orlane Malt
Temple Guardian • Rank 3
A temple guardian who was recently slain by robbers after one of the Quillsages, she was able to be raised by the grace of Oghma. She assisted the Harpers in finding the skull of the sage Ammathair Hawkfeather (specialist in metaphysics and the history, myths, and theology of humankind) by attacking a gang's leadership and recovering the sacred relic.
