Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun
Human Mage & Chosen of Mystra
Khelben stands just over 6ft tall and was well-muscled. He usually dressed in robes, wielding his trademark Blackstaff. As of he has a full beard, black hair with silver streaks, including a prominent one through his beard, and a distinguished, imposing manner.He often dresses in black with a silver torque and a cape lined in gray fur
The only side of Khelben that most see is that of the gravely wise tutor or stern archmage with much more important things to think about and do than deal with these younglings. If news of a threat to Waterdeep, the North, or the Realms in general, is brought to him, Khelben goes into action, planning countermeasures, seeking the aid of allies, and asking the informer to continue in search of more information. Those who know Khelben well sometimes referred to him as a spider in the center of a massive web of information, schemes, plans, and counter-plans. While his web is centered on the City of Splendors, Khelben places tendrils across the North and beyond. Just as he is noted as a collector of magic and magical items, Khelben also is a hoarder of information. He is a firm believer in the credo, “A secret isn’t a secret if you tell anyone.” He commonly manipulates people and events with this exclusive store of knowledge; to this end he’d never volunteer information that wasn’t specifically requested of him.
