Waterdeep: Darkness Rising
Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun
Archmage of Waterdeep, Chosen of Mystra... currently missing
The Archmage often helped the Company of the Blue Axe – often grudgingly – during their adventures. After the Company disappeared, he went with a contingent of other Waterdhavians to aid Evereska in their battle against the phaerimm.
He has not been heard from since.
His lover and companion, Laeral, has been distraught with his disappearance and spends all her time locked away in Blackstaff Tower. The academy the couple used to run together is being operated by their brightest students, but they seem overwhelmed by the tasks at hand.
