Prior Hlam (pronounced: /həˈlɔːmhuh-LAWM[3]) was a human monk and priest of Tyr who lived in Neverwinter in 1374 DR and in Waterdeep in 1492 DR.[1][note 1]


Hlam was a staunch ally of the Order of the Gauntlet. The Blackstaff Vajra Safahr often sent members of Force Grey to him for advice. Hlam and the gold dragon Aurinax were friends and spoke to each other regularly.[4]


Prior Hlam assisted Reverend Judge Oleff Uskar as he presided over the Hall of Justice in Neverwinter. Hlam's duties included training those who worshiped Tyr in both the fields of justice and marshal ability.[5]

In the late 15th century DR, Hlam lived in a cave on the slopes of Mount Waterdeep. As grand-master of the Order of the Even-Handed, he occasionally took up prospective students, who typically did not return for a second session of training.[1]



  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).

Gameplay [source? relevance?]Edit

The Kalach-Cha could bring Khelgar Ironfist to Hlam to become a monk. Hlam would give Khelgar three trials (making him angry for inconvenience of having to take these tests). Khelgar would have to explore the Ironfist keep for Khulmar, be convinced not to view people as stereotypes and learn why he fought (done once he volunteers to fight Lorne Starling).

After the trial to determine their guilt in regard to the destruction of Ember, the Kalach-Cha had to visit Hlam to meditate before the trial by combat.
