Mentor Wintercloak was a mysterious human archmage who lived for some time in Cormanthyr.


Mentor was born in 219 DR.[2] He lived for many years in the elf city perfectly disguised as an elf. He only revealed himself in 261 DR for the creation of the mythal of Myth Drannor, offering his help in the creation.[3]

Mentor, as one of the Seven Wizards, founded and directed the Incanisteum magic school. In 667 DR he was the only human member of the early Council of Twelve[4]

From 426 DR to 440 DR Mentor tutored the young Khelben Arunsun (at that time still unnamed)[5]. In 659 DR Mentor also tutored the young uthgardt Tulrun.[6]

However in 682 DR Mentor, together with the Masked and their four gnomes apprentices, left the city.[7]

He was in 1374 DR among the many powerful mages his former student Khleben Arunsun brought together in order to restore the denizens of the lost city of Miyeritaar's High Mages and cleanse part of the High Moor.[8]


He was a close ally of Alais Dree.[1]
