Althallan Crownsilver was a member of House Crownsilver, a noble family in Cormyr. He ascended to the head of the family for a short time in the early 13th century DR.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Althallan was of small stature, but moved with feline grace. He had luxurious red hair and large dark-blue or indigo eyes that made him appear almost feminine.[1]

PersonalityEdit

His wit was as quick and sharp as his swords.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

Despite being a small man, Althallan had a great capacity for alcohol and could drink much larger men under the table. He was quite good at wielding two rapier-like longswords simultaneously. He had no qualms about using a large drinking vessel as a missile weapon.[1]

ActivitiesEdit

According to the notorious divulger of secrets, Volothamp Geddarm, Althallan and his friend Donder Cormaeril concocted a scheme to put pressure on western Sembian merchants and holdings by secretly supporting the so-called Hullack Hawk—a bandit that attacked Sembian interests and fled into the Hullack Forest—and publicly directing the blame toward Eltrym Drauthglas, the Lord of Hullack.[2]

HistoryEdit

Althallan once foiled an assassination attempt that happened after a bout of drinking. All the other nobles involved were intoxicated to the point of impairment, but Althallan had the wherewithal to intercept and slay the killer.[1]

Rumors & LegendsEdit

Although unproven, Volo posited that the Hullack Hawk was none other than Beldarm Truesilver in disguise, doing the bidding of, or at least in league with, Althallan and Donder.[2]
