The Chosen were individuals imbued with divine power by at least one of the deities. It gave them power that was comparable to a demigod.[1] Some individuals served as the chosen to more than one deity.[2]

History[]

In the century following the events of the Spellplague, in the Year of Blue Fire, 1385 DR, there were no chosen who were not also exarchs.[3]

In the 1480s DR, the chosen as they once were began to reappear in the Realms. Many of them played important roles in the events of the Second Sundering, acting as agents of their respective deities.[4]

Notes[]

  1. Erin M. Evans confirmed in a post in the Candlekeep forum that he was a Chosen of Vhaeraun. He appears in The Adversary.
  2. Although the adventure Murder in Baldur's Gate presents three possible Chosen of Bhaal (Torlin, Rilsa Rael, and Ulder Ravengard), Torlin is the canonical candidate, and the one referenced in later releases such as Dead in Thay.
