Krikendolt was an unusual barbazu in Avernus, first layer of the Nine Hells, in the late 15th century DR.[1]


During one of the many battles of the Blood War, a vrock hit Krikendolt's head, causing him a brain injury that unknown to everyone switched his alignment to chaotic good.[1]

In the Year of Twelve Warnings, 1494 DR,[note 1] Zariel ordered Krikendolt and four of his fellows to burn Avernus trees before they grew into thickets and blossomed with abyssal chicken. However, Krikendolt pitied the chickens and when his companions found about this, they started to pressure him to kill the chickens or face death.[1]



  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 in 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).
