The Many-Starred Cloak was composed of many good-aligned wizards who were the real political power in Neverwinter. When Lord Nasher Alagondar became the ruler of the city, they wholeheartedly supported his rule.
They were renowned for their arcane skill and the whimsical, colorful cloaks they wore.
During the Spellplague of 1385 DR, the wizards disappeared when their tower was sent to the Far Realm. When the Cloak Tower returned to Neverwinter, six months later, there was no trace of the wizards, as only their colorful cloaks remained.
In the late years of the 15th century DR, four of the surviving mages sent to the Far Realm, Gyrion, Nostura, Kabal, and Lukan, returned to Neverwinter. Angered by what they saw as an illegitimate successor to Nasher Alagondar in the form of Dagult Neverember, they became the Cloaked Ascendancy and tried to take the city from him by force.
