Ammalia Cassalanter (pronounced: /ɑːˈmɔːliɑː ˈkɑːsɑːlɑːntɛrah-MAW-lee-ah KAS-ah-lan-ter[2]) was a Waterdhavian noble in the late 15th century DR. She was the wife of Victoro Cassalanter.[1]

Activities[]

Ammalia was schooled in the arcane arts. Like her husband, she was the leader of a Cult of Asmodeus that involved certain nobles in Waterdeep.[3]

During an average day, she normally tended to her garden, smoked on the balcony, dismally watching the ocean, or wept at a transformed Osvaldo's feet in her mansion's attic.[4]

History[]

In 1489 DR,[4][note 1] the couple signed a contract with Asmodeus, in which they agreed to give up the souls of their children in exchange for power, good health, and long life. Their eldest son, Osvaldo, was taken immediately and transformed into a chain devil. Terenzio and Elzerina, their youngest twins, were also scheduled to be taken by the archdevil when they turned nine years old in 1492 DR,[note 1] to be transformed into lemures. The only way to save the children was pay to the Hell a tremendous amount of coin and the souls of numerous people in sacrifice.[1][5]

In 1492 Ammalia and her husband planned to recover the lost gold of Dagult Neverember and use it to buy back the souls of their children[6] Meantime Ammalia planned to serve poison food during a party ousted during the Founders' Day celebration in order to gain the ninety-nine souls they need.[7]

If Ammalia and Victoro presented in time the gold and the ninety-nine souls to a devil servant of Asmodeus the souls of Terenzio and Elzerina would be safe.[5]

Notes[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but Christopher Perkins answered a question via Twitter and stated the year was 1492 DR. Corroborating this, Dragon Heist page 20 refers to events of Death Masks (set in 1491 DR) as being "last year". Unless a canon source contradicts this assertion, this wiki will use 1492 DR for events related to this sourcebook and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (which is referenced on pages 5 and 98 of Dragon Heist).
