The Brokengulf family (pronounced: /ˈbroʊkɛngʊlf/ BROH-ken-gulf) of Waterdeep was a wealthy mercantile house that had been a part of the city's nobility for over a hundred years as of the mid–14th century DR. They were renowned explorers and hunters who were known for tracking and capturing wild beasts.
- Saerlin Brokengulf: A deceased lord of the family.
- Morus Brokengulf I: The deceased patriarch of House Brokengulf.
- Morus Brokengulf II: A paladin of Tyr within the Holy Order of the Knights of Samular who spent most of his time away from home.
- Aridarye Brokengulf: The family's de facto leader.
The Brokengulfs nearly went bankrupt after losing a great amount of their wealth to the ancient green dragon, Claugiyliamatar, following an elaborate ruse she played on the family's patriarch, Lord Saerlin. When she confronted Saerlin with blackmail, and he in turn sought out a dragonslayer, the great wyrm collapsed the tower of the Brokengulf villa upon him, crippling the lord and killing three of his sisters.
Following the death of Lord Morus Brokengulf I, Morus II returned from the Sword Coast to the family's estate in the Sea Ward of Waterdeep to assume his role as the head of House Brokengulf. After a few months of frustration in this role, he turned over operation of the family's business to his friend and fellow Knight, Sir Gareth Cormaeril, while Lady Aridarye became the family's matriarch.
