Ezzat was a lich who resided in the Runestone Caverns level of Undermountain in the late 15th century DR.[1]


At some point before becoming a lich, Ezzat was offered the chance by Halaster to become an apprentice of his, but was convinced otherwise by a priest friend of his.[1]

Later, his priest friend died of old age, which prompted Ezzat to become a lich to avoid the same fate. He later set up a tower in a stalagmite on the Runestone Caverns level of Undermountain, and later acquired a pseudodragon companion Ipses. Here he was based around 1492 DR.[note 1][1]


Ezzat dreamed of one day taking over Undermountain from Halaster Blackcloak, and fantasized about one day forming an alliance with Halaster's former companion, Jhesiyra Kestellharp.[3]

He was skilled at the game Coroniir, which he sometimes played with a staff of frost he had imbued with sentience.[1]


Ezzat owned an ebony wand and a amulet of proof against detection, as well as a large collection of books on Undermountain, which he used to research how to overthrow Halaster.[3]



  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but Christopher Perkins answered a question via Twitter and stated the year was 1492 DR. Unless a canon source contradicts this assertion, this wiki will use 1492 DR for events related to this sourcebook and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (which is referenced on pages 5 and 98 of Dragon Heist).
