Maskar Wands was the patriarch of the Wands family in Waterdeep in 1372 DR.[1]


Maskar was a conservative and traditionally minded individual. He greatly disapproved of the abuse of magic and its wasteful, unrestrained use, even sometimes chastising Khelben Arunsun.[1]


In 1374 DR, he was among the many powerful mages Arunsun brought together in order to restore the High Mages of the lost city of Miyeritaar and cleanse part of the High Moor.[2]

In the year of the Gauntlet, He was also one of the staunch defenders of Waterdeep when Iakhovas led a Sahuagin attack on the city, when he lifted one gigantic sea serpent from the harbor, crushed it and incinerated it with a tremendous fireball. He threatened the attackers with swift death for their mistake in attacking the city. His arrival and that of other great champions of the city rose the morale of the the citizens, who desperately tried to drive the attack back.[3]}}

You've made a mistake in attacking the City of Splendors this night. Retreat while you can. There will be no mercy
— Maskar Wands[3]



Maskar was rarely seen. Occasionally, he took student wizards but asked for payment involving difficult, Art-related quests.[1]
