Eldoth Kron was an unscrupulous bard[note 1] who traveled throughout the Sword Coast during the mid–14th century DR.[1]

"There is no good or evil, only the charming and the tedious."
— Eldoth

Personality[edit | edit source]

He was a sleazy and chauvinistic dilettante who made a living seducing rich women and living off their money.[1]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Eldoth was rather adept at crafting poison-tipped arrows that were too dangerous for others to properly handle.[1]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

While he did not seem to truly care for her, Eldoth enjoyed a romantic relationship with the noblewoman, Skie Silvershield. She truly loved him despite the absence of mutual respect and adoration.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Eldoth was originally from the realm of Ruathym. He left isle as a teenager to study at the academy of New Olamn in Waterdeep. At some point in his youth he became quite skilled in the use of poison.[1]

In the Year of the Banner, 1368 DR, he formulated a scheme that involved his lover Skie. He was to elope with her, and blackmail her father by claiming she was "kidnapped" and threatening harm upon her if he was not paid on a regular basis.[1]

Some time that year or next, he formed a plot with the misandrist warrior Shar-Teel Dosan. The two were to work with a few other adventurers escorting a bride-to-be and her dowry south from the Sword Coast to the nation of Amn. Among this group were the paladin of Helm, Ajantis Ilvastarr, the ranger Kivan, and the megalomaniacal priest Tiax. After their caravan was ambushed by hobgoblins and ogres, Eldoth stole the dowry and retreated to the Undercellar in Baldur's Gate.[2]

Ajantis survived the assault and briefly partnered with Shar-Teel to recover the stolen riches. Unfortunately for him, he was double-crossed by Shar-Teel and killed in the sewers beneath the city.[2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. In the Baldur's Gate comic, Ajantis refers to Eldoth as a mage. It is unknown if this is an error or a change of profession.
