Marek the Shank was a hobgoblin of Ship Rethnor in Icewind Dale in 1485 DR.[2]


Dressed in studded leather, Marek used a longsword and shield, or wielded a shortbow in battle.[1]


Marek was a hobgoblin fighter member of Ship Rethnor in Luskan. He and his friend Slim were the main leaders of the Rethnor men that followed Vaelish Gant in Icewind Dale. They started a protection racket in Bryn Shander and supported Vaelish in his political plot.

In Eleint 20, they stole silver weapons ordered by the Harper Aarun from Dunavan's warehouse. On Highharvestide, Silm and Marek kidnapped the Speaker of Bryn Shander, Duvessa Shane, on the day of an election and Vaelish proposed himself as a substitute while pretending to be reluctant.[2]



In order to fight Akar Kessell and Hedrun Arnsfirth, the adventurers could potentially allow Vaelish to succeed in his plan.
