Anomen Delryn was a nobleman and a squire who served in the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart during the mid–14th century DR.[1]

"Long live the Order of the Most Radiant Heart – for I draw from the pool of right and strike in their name."
— Anomen


Anomen's often gave the first impression of being an insufferably vain who constantly bragged about battles he'd most likely never fought.[1]


Anomen had a strained relationship with his father. He often submitted to Lord Delryn's hostility and vitriol regardless of how he felt.[1]

He had great respect for Keldorn Firecam, a highly respected senior member of the Order of the Radiant Heart. Sir Ryan Trawl held Anomen to high esteem and believed him ready to achieve full knighthood. He was well-acquainted with other squires from the order, among them Ajantis Ilvastarr of Waterdeep.[1]


Anomen owned a unique shield that was gifted to him by his father.[1]


Anomen Delryn, a native of Athkatla, was the son of Lord Cor and Lady Moirala Delryn. He had a younger sister, Moira. His mother died while Anomen was relatively young.[1]

In the 1360s DR, Anomen's ambition to become a paladin of Helm was denied when his father, wanting his son to join him in the family merchant business, refused to sponsor him for knighthood. He became estranged from his father. Instead, Anomen chose to train as a warrior-priest of Helm, and sought his knighthood through the sponsorship of the Church of Helm.[1]

During his time as a squire he fought many battles alongside the knights of the Radiant Heart. He was there for their campaign against the Hillgnasher giants. He helped battle against the orcs that poured down from the Ommlur Hills.[1]

In the Year of the Shield, 1367 DR, Anomen traveled with some squires of Torm to a tournament in the city of Riatavin. On their way, the group was waylaid by a griffon. While knights-to-be were scattered and panicked, Anomen managed to get into the griffon's back and slay it with his spear.[1]

As of the the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, he was still a squire in the Most Noble of Order of the Radiant Heart and would soon be facing his knighthood trial. He spent some time in the Copper Coronet in the slums of Athkatla seeking a group with which to adventure.[1]
