Khelben The Blackstaff, one of the mightiest wizards and former lord of Waterdeep
Khelben stood just over 6 feet (1.83 meters) tall and was well-muscled. He usually dressed in robes, wielding his trademark Blackstaff.
While returning back from Oakhurst to Secomber, heroes met mysterious stranger. Stranger paralyzed everyone but Ruinir with one gesture. And read their minds after this. He left them saying that they will meet again. Later adventurers learned that this could be noone else but Khelben Arunsun, former Lord of Waterdeep and very powerful mage.
