Relationships[edit | edit source]

Her uncle, Aun Argent was a noted paladin in the Order of the Aster.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

She hailed from Waterdeep, where her family had ties with the Order of the Aster. Divine blood ran through the Argent family, though it was dormant for generations until Caelar was born. When she was nine years old, Caelar was tasked to watch over the order's library. While carrying out her duties, she succumbed to temptation and read aloud from the Tome of The Nine and got herself locked in Belhifet's torture cage in Avernus. Her uncle Aun made an offer to Belhifet and traded his own soul in return for that of Caelar.[1]

Afterwards, Caelar left the order and met the priest Hephernaan. He hid his true identity as a follower of Belhifet and convinced Caelar to lead a crusade to Avernus in order to rescue her uncle. Together, they gathered an army and marched to Dragonspear Castle, within which was a well-known gate to the Nine Hells existed.[1]
