Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun
Khelben “Blackstaff” Arunsun is the Lord Mage of Waterdeep, a masked Lord of Waterdeep, and powerful archmage.
One of the few spellcasters to become one of Mystra’s Chosen, Khelben was a serious, imposing wizard, and a grim proponent of law and order whose methods of achieving the ultimate good were often highly questionable in the eyes of the righteous. One such deal—with Fzoul Chembryl, cleric of Bane and leader of the sinister Zhentarim—led to the once highly regarded member of the semi-secret Harper organization being simultaneously expelled and leaving the organization. Khelben did not leave alone, however; he formed the Harper splinter-group the Moonstars, to better suit his needs.
