Captain Darmin Zodge was an officer of the Flaming Fist who was stationed in the city of Baldur's Gate during the late 15th century DR.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

While he presented himself as an earnest, dutiful soldier, Zodge was actually a self-centered and opportunistic individual. Despite his lack of concern for others, he did genuinely care for the welfare of the soldiers under his command.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

When Grand Duke Ravengard disappeared along with the city of Elturel, in the Year of Twelve Warnings, 1494 DR,[note 1] Zodge was tasked with handling the great many refugees that swarmed to Baldur's Gate. He saw the crisis as an opportunity to take charge of the Flaming Fist army.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Canon material provides two distinct dates for the events described in Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus: the adventure itself, described in chapters 1 through 5, takes place "fifty years" after 1444 DR (1494 DR), according to events mentioned in pages 7 and 47, while the Baldur's Gate Gazetteer describes the city as of 1492 DR (p. 159). It is possible that the designers made an approximation for "fifty years", even though it is stated in an infernal contract. The lead writer for Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus later confirmed that the adventure takes place in 1492 DR, and the sequel to the adventure, Baldur's Gate III, also claims that the current year is 1492 DR in multiple places.
