  • Polandara Larin

    Polandara comes from fairly low beginnings, not from the bottom of the pile but as the daughter of a merchant who traded along the sword coast. Her mother had been a trophy wife but she wanted her daughter to do well in the city, to live off her own …

  • Wren

    One of the strongest humans in the compound she’s trained to be like Polandara, and in some aspects even by her. She doesn’t let this go to her head though, she watches and tries to learn. When it comes to manual tasks she nearly always volunteers, for …

  • Gouge

    He likes to do the cooking, but mostly because he likes heavy meat dishes and cant be sure he’ll get that if someone else pulls the duty. They don’t always taste great but they do always fill you up. He’s a specialist at unarmed combat but he also carries …

  • Yvonne

    She doesn’t really seem to show her rank at all. She wears her dark chainmail and carries two hunting knives in her belt. Her Elven heritage isn’t outwardly apparent she just looks like a young lady with curly dark hair and a slim build. She helps with …

  • Barington

    Its takes a lot for him to consider he’s wrong on something and Wren has come to blows with him before in anger. He did eventually concede that point but then he’s a good six inches shorter than her. He’s not unpleasant, just a young man who thinks he …

  • Thal’Alispar "Blade Shadowfist"

    The Sun Elf has never said anything about living with a half elf. That alone makes him different from the average elf. He’s quiet and withdrawn, which is unlike his race, and he tends to chose martial training over study too. Its obvious why he left …

  • Anolin Truehold

    Well you haven’t seen much of him that’s for sure but you know he lives there. He has the smallest of the upstairs rooms and is the furthest from the loft. He seems to pull guard duty fairly often and with his good night vision is often out of the house …

  • Shawl

    She seems to almost act childlike at times, which doesn't help with her youthful appearance. However she loves to eat but seems to lack her races affinity with cooking. At times she wont even eat the food she's prepared. Somehow even with her appetite she …

  • Jonathan

    Technically Jonathan runs the house, but he’s not really all that strict. It doesn’t matter to him what state anyone’s room is as long as the kitchen and loft are kept tidy and doors are kept shut. But he’s from hardy folk, raised in the Dalelands with …

  • Daline

    “She’s much too young to be fighting” that’s all you ever hear said about her. Thing is she’s taken down quite a few people with more experience than her. She was the shock winner of the tournament in the year she graduated. She was 14 at the time. She …

  • Balek

    He’s a new trainee much like you. He turned up in the docks one day and started looking for a fighter’s guild. He was disappointed in the structure of Waterdeep but when he saw all the warriors walking around with the same tabard on he started trying to …

  • Laranthan Sweetsong

    She has travelled far and wide, she journeyed with the slayers of The Vampire Kings for a short while too and she has many stories to tell. She has been in and out of Waterdeep a lot through the years with even the odd generation gap between her visits. …

  • Laressa Larin

    Polandara’s cousin. She’s an expert tactician and is able to craft dragon-scale armour. Good skills for anyone to have and Polandara will defer to her when it comes to initial plans. Polandara is better at thinking on her feet and they work very well …

  • Isanme

    Leads the reserves and skirmish groups during fighting. Has an amazing timing and her brass horn gives a lot of information to other commanders. She spends most of her time training the archers and is normally found in the open of the compound. She worked …

  • Sir Vangor

    He plays the role of the immovable object. The only captain who is deployed in the front line he holds it all together. He is good at thinking on the fly and keeps the line in check. Alcohol is a vice of his though and he’s often found in the sweet song …

  • Wish

    She has the voice that people respond to. People have always listened to her and followed her and she is excellent at motivating all of the troops. She always knows the right thing to say it seems. While Laressa and Polandara develop the plans and pass …

  • Granite Firehold

    He brings experience and a few followers of his own. During the war with the followers of Shar his own group was fighting against a common foe as Polandara’s and though they lost a great deal of their number they survived against odds that seemed …

  • Taurin Lanir

    Taurin is from Thay. Of course this generally would label her with distrust so she has taken it upon herself to prove worthy. She takes many risks that, until now, have paid off in her favour. If she is guarding something, or someone, you know it will be …

  • Notorian

    There are many that believe Notorian shouldn’t hold his rank. Polandara is clearly not among them though. He is an adventurer, pure and simple. He is rarely in the compound and when he is he is normally just back to store away something he has looted. He …

  • Sir Galdin

    Sir Galdin led a mercenary unit, which was often involved in the same wars as Laressa’s. The difference being he was usually on the other side. There wasn’t any real animosity as both sides were mercenaries and both were good at their job. He’s a recent …

  • Thoelon

    Sometimes when you’ve started so low there’s only one way you can go. Luckily for Waterdeep Thoelon went in that direction. He was born outside the city to a group of raiders. They would attack farmsteads, rape women, steal the coin and burn the crops. …

  • Umbra

    Umbra has a talent, a gift if you like, and it’s a very handy one. Umbra and the weave don’t mix. Put simply only divine magic has any effect on her. She’s completed several stupidly dangerous missions that for her have been easy tasks. Of course there is …

  • Arkhail Shield Breaker

    Arkhail was just a normal grunt, a nobody really. Then when taking a fort one time he captured a ballista and turned it inwards, adjusted the aim and started shooting at the other siege weapons. That earned him instant promotion to sergeant and since then …

  • Thralsh

    Seemingly fearless and indestructible Thralsh is a good man for boosting spirits. There isn’t a lot of situations he wouldn’t run head long at, but the reason he holds rank is that there are at least some. He can judge if the odds are completely against …

  • Sajjad Naseer

    I greet you all in the name of Waukeen. I proudly present myself as Sajjad, I follow the way of Faris. I am the 18th generation of the Naseer family and 1292nd in line to the royal throne. I trained as a warrior through my families trainers until I …

  • Ignian

    The first thing to note about Ignian is that he has housing outside of the compound. He owns a large house at the end of Horn Street in the north ward and retains staff there. He openly flaunts his wealth and tends not to apply for high paying jobs credit …

  • Hope

    She comes from the Dale lands originally and she carries a lot of that in her character. She's quiet most of the time but willing to accept any success as an excuse to celebrate. She doesn't spend many of her credits at the tavern during normal times but …

  • Thell (Tarthell Gemgrinder)

    Thell never talks about his past or where he came from and the other dwarves in the compound seem to be slightly suspicious of him because of this. The only time you hear him speak in Dwarven is when he's swearing and he even addresses the other Dwarves …

  • Sir Daniel Nelm

    He's quite young to be wearing a title, but it was a title earned during the battle of the Dales 5 years ago. He was one of four to have survived the holding battle before Polandara's forces turned up. They took him in for his intelligence on the enemy …

  • Razor

    Razor is clearly not his real name but its the one everyone knows him by. He rode in on a horse one day with Umbra, his white robes covered in blood and a good deal of it seemed to be his. Rather than go to the temple though the pair went to Polandara's …

  • Melody Kellek

    She no longer dresses like the typical wench but is known that she does hail from the Pirate Isles. Why she left the crew she was with and joined Polandara's army is somewhat unknown but she's not acted suspiciously since she's been there. She often …

  • Faldkor

    The gnomes that know know me tell me I am not a normal gnome. But what is a normal gnome I ask you? What may be normal to one is not normal to another. Without a calculated base of statistical averages taken by one group of gnomes that have studied all …

  • Melesante

    If you come in for a drink after a night watch you often find Melesante working behind the bar, she has a tendency to work after she's had her fun. She doesn't get as involved in the feast days as [[:sabrina-1 | Sabrina]] does so she normally pulls those …

  • Victor

    Born and raised on a farm it's simple to understand why he does the morning shift, normally with a slight overlap of the girls so that he gets a chance to socialise with people who are awake. He is an actor, a singer and a poet and has taken some of that …

  • Mysterious Elf

    He keeps to himself, the only people that have regularly spoken to him are [[:glide-1 | Glide]], [[:faldkor | Faldkor]] and [[:polandara | Polandara Larin]]. He seems to have an affinity with animals and skills in the world of espionage which many would …

  • Glide

    She was one of [[:polandara | Polandara]]'s first followers to arrive that wasn't part of [[:laressa-larin | Laressa]]'s mercenary group. Her child hood story follows that of her leaders in many parallels but she didn't have the capability for violence or …

  • Jex

    He seems to have fairly free roam of where ever he is but he hasn't taken the chance to run away. This likely points to him being well cared for. When he's not seen with [[:faldkor | Faldkor]] he's within the [[House 302 |The House]] or with [[:mysterious …

  • Jorin

    From the dale lands he lived for a long time on his wits awaiting for the chance to fight back. When [[:polandara | Polandara's]] army arrived to push back the Zhentil forces he happily joined them, he showed them places where they could take advantage of …

  • Palene

  • Paranon

  • Darrena

  • Davin

    He grew up in Luskan and his family moved to Waterdeep a year before the Vampire Kings took his child hood home. Luskan may not be much of a city but to him it was home so the people that took down the vampire kings instantly became his heroes. He knew he …

  • Ellen

  • Grath

    His father died in the battle for the Dale lands, in a battle he was too young to fight in. His homestead was saved though by [[:polandara | Polandara's]] army, an army he wanted to join. He was told he was too young to join that too so he waited two …

  • Karrin

  • Killen

    He grew up working on the farms for the compound, it was almost a natural progression for him to join the army. He always felt like he should be doing more and as his older brother was taking over the farm he chose the path that he felt would help the …

  • Marren

    He dropped his family surname when he arrived in [[Waterdeep | Waterdeep]] so people aren't really sure where he came from but it's generally believed he comes from money, a merchant family most likely. He spends a lot of his time riding the supply carts …

  • Pandane

    He started out as a wagoneer for his parents clothing business and he was happy with this role, until he was attacked and he had to rely on guards to protect him and the goods he was carrying, the guards didn't and he lost a lot of money for his family …

  • Parneth

    He was raised by a family of hunters, a family he always thought was his own. It wasn't till he was in his teens that he found out he was adopted. His real family was killed in a goblin attack, his father, mother and older sister. He decided to make it …

  • Termarl

    He was in [[:laressa-larin | Laressa's]] mercenary unit and then when they went to follow [[:polandara | Polandara]] he did as well. He regretted losing contact with his younger brother [[:pelnar | Pelnar]] but since the youth of the family took the …

  • Rellan

    Allegedly his clan runs across the great glacier, where no one could reasonably survive. He arrived with [[:talene | Talene]] and [[:talnore | Talnore]] with fame on his mind, he knew of [[:polandara | Polandara's]] dragon slaying and what he wants more …

  • Talene

  • Rose

  • Signarian

  • Tekna

  • Thel

    The woodsman still carries the tool of his old trade with pride and the handle is well worn to fit his grip. He has learnt new skills since being at the compound though, the darts he throws for one and apparently he can also joust now, although he doesn't …

  • Zargosa

    He rolled in from the docks one day asking to speak to [[:polandara | Polandara Larin]] and what ever tale he told it was probably a good one because he's still here. He seems to have enjoyed the training, and he doesn't even seem to be put out when …

  • Yarrow

    He was in the city guard, but when the city guard didn't join the fight at the gate but [[:polandara | Polandara's]] army did he started to question his allegiance. He signed up once his time was up with the city guard and found out that he didn't know …

  • Yarol

    He used to work on the farms for the compound but after the harvest one year he decided he wanted just that little bit more from life, adventure, purpose, the odd lie in of a morning. So he signed up and he picked up things fairly fast. He still like to …

  • Kyanis "Ruby Dawn"

    She was one of [[:polandara | Polandara]]'s original followers, one of the few that didn't arrive with [[:laressa-larin | Laressa Larin]] but someone who'd been living in [[Waterdeep | Waterdeep]] for a long time. While people normally go to [[:yvonne | …

  • Ariela "Silver-Hawk"

    She was one of the first wave of followers that arrived in the compound for [[:polandara | Polandara]] and it's not that she hasn't tried for advancement it's more that it hasn't stuck. She's been a sergeant a couple of times now and led a few of the …

  • Selanis "High Dawn"

    He entered into the tournament using his elven bow as a staff and came fourth in his year, somewhat of an achievement as his armour was light as well as his weapon technically improvised. He's fast to adapt and respond and has served with the skirmishers …

  • Malinar "War-Brother"

    He was one of the first people to greet [[:thal-alispar-blade-shadowfist | Thal’Alispar "Blade Shadowfist" ]] on his arrival at the compound and despite having been there for longer always defers to him. Its obvious that his family owes some allegiance to …

  • Tarn Dragfoot

  • Malcer Helder

    He joined up to Polandara's army when he was fairly young but never managed to stand out enough. That is until he started learning from [[:daline | Daline]]. She understood him in ways that the other trainers didn't and he soon found himself improving in …

  • Randal Evenwood

    Randal wanted to train to become a member of the city guard but his height seemed to hold him back there. [[:daline | Daline]] discovered him and brought him back to the compound where he turned out to be an amazing student, passing all the training …

  • Zalis

    She's been a recruit in the compound for quite a while but no one seemed to be able to get her trained to the standard required. She always fell just short but it was obvious that she was trying. Then [[:daline | Daline]] came along, she could see the …

  • Melsany SeLangstra

    She's someone that always got on with [[:daline | Daline]] but she didn't join the compound at the same time, waiting until she was technically old enough instead. Once she joined the bond of friendship resumed and at the same time her old friend turned …

  • Indo

    His physical stature made him a popular recruit within the compound and many of the trainers wanted to work with him. Ultimately he chose to work with [[:daline | Daline]], the person who seemed to be willing to teach anyone. This may have confused some …

  • Vonda

    She's someone who was assigned incorrectly, she was being taught to be in the cavalry and yet she was a very good infantry recruit from the start. Her ambidexterity is an evident boon, as is her ability to run long distances without tiring. Neither would …

  • Lynneth

    She's the sort of person who follows rather than makes up her own mind. So while her friends were joining the Band Of Hawks she joined too. Difference is she outshone them all in training and headed towards qualification long before the rest of them.

  • Andor

    He always favoured weapons which looked good, that was his problem and he rarely kept focus. [[:daline | Daline]] was the one that suggested the two handed warhammer to him and he finally found something that suited him and was different enough that he …

  • Sha'lasel "Sun Wild Halk"

    She's been in the city of decades, originally arriving with her lover who was a trader but through the years they grew apart, it happens after all. When she was direction-less and a long way from home [[:daline | Daline]] reached out for her, said she …

  • Dorn Amblecrown

    He wandered in one day, spoke to Polandara and stayed. He does what he's told and follows orders well but little is known about him. He doesn't socialise and as far as anyone can tell has no friends or family outside of the compound.
