Krehlan Arunsun was the son of Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun and Laeral Silverhand and the fourth Blackstaff.[3]


Krehlan was silver-haired from birth.[3]


Laeral noted in Lifelong with Regrets (published 1391 DR) that Krehlan had his father's temper.[4]


Laeral was pregnant with Krehlan by the end of the Year of Lightning Storms, 1374 DR.[1][note 1]

Unlike his parents, Krehlan was not a Chosen of Mystra, but was still a highly skilled spellcaster, sufficient to become a Blackstaff.[5] Krehlan became Blackstaff in the Year of Lost Ships, 1400 DR.[6]

In the 1415 DR, Krehlan and the Grand Mages of Rhymanthiin dissipated the kiira N'Vaelhar, which held the spirit-templates and combined knowledge of Khelben Arunsun, Tsarra Chaadren, and Kyriani Agrivar, and bound its magic to Blackstaff Tower and its twin in Rhymanthiin, N'Vaerymanth.[7][8]

Around 1424 DR, Krehlan was killed by Chartham Dellenvol. His successor was Ashemmon of Rhymanthiin.[2][6] Krehlan's spirit-template went on to reside within Blackstaff Tower, along with the spirit-templates of the other former Blackstaffs.[9]



  1. This suggests Krehlan was probably born in 1375 DR.
