Liara Portyr (pronounced: /liˈɑːrɑː pɔːrˈtɪərlee-AR-ah por-TEER[2]) was the commander of Fort Beluarian and the highest-ranking member of the Flaming Fist in Chult in the late 1480s or early 1490s DR, answering only to Duke Ulder Ravengard of Baldur's Gate.[1]


Liara held the rank of Blaze (Major) in the Flaming Fist.[1]


In general, she had no problem with adventurers and would do her utmost to help them deal with the myriad threats lurking in the jungle. To her, her assignment to Fort Beluarian felt like a test of mettle.[1]


Liara came from an influential family in Baldur's Gate. In the late 1480s or early 1490s DR, Liara was the commander of Fort Beluarian. At this time, Liara had a deal with the pirates of Jahaka Anchorage. Liara's spies in Port Nyanzaru furnished her with ship manifests and departure schedules that she passed along to the pirates, in exchange for promises to never attack ships flying the flag of Baldur's Gate. Liara also received a cut of the pirates' profits, some of which went toward keeping her garrison happy.[1]
