Ajantis Ilvastarr was a noble paladin of Helm and a knight of the Order of the Radiant Heart that lived during the mid–14th century DR.[1][2]

Evil will always fail against courage and honor.
— Ajantis


Fitting for a paladin, Ajantis was known to be a self-righteous, yet somewhat naive individual.[1]


He was an acquainted with another squire of the Radiant Heart, Anomen Delryn of Athkatla.[1]


Ajantis was born to the noble Ilvastarr family of Waterdeep. During his youth he received exceptional martial training learning the art of sword-fighting under the tutelage of Myrmith Splendon.[2]

Some years later he joined the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart and garnered the attention of the highly respected Keldorn Firecam. He served the elder knight as a squire and a member of the Radiant Heart Auxiliary.[1]

When the iron crisis plagued the Sword Coast in the Year of the Banner, 1368 DR, Ajantis felt a call-to-action. He sought to investigate the bandits that plagued the region in order to attain the status within his order as a full-fledged knight.[1]

Some time that year or next, Ajantis joined with several other adventurers including Eldoth Kron and Shar-Teel Dosan escorting a bride-to-be and her dowry south from the Sword Coast to the nation of Amn. Partway through the journey the caravan was ambushed by hobgoblins and ogres and several of the adventurers were slain.[3]

Afterwards, Shar-Teel convinced Ajantis that the missing Eldoth was responsible for the assault, and had stolen the dowry. The pair tracked Eldoth down to the Undercellar in Baldur's Gate, where Shar-Teel betrayed Ajantis and made off with the riches.[3]

By the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, Ajantis made his way down to Amn. Some time that year, Ajantis and other knights of the Radiant Heart spent time traveling through the Windspear Hills. Unbeknownst to them, the knights had illusions placed upon them by Lord Jierdan Firkraag. The magic gave the knights the appearance of ogres, and also made them perceive other humanoids the same way.[2]
