Noska Ur'gray was an enforcer of the Xanathar's Thieves' Guild in Waterdeep during the early 1490s DR.[1]


Noska was the chief enforcer for the Xanathar. He lived inside the beholder's lair.[2] During the gladiator tournaments organized by his master, Noska managed the fighters.[3]


Once Noska lost his left hand and forearm to a green slime's attack. He replaced the missing part with a heavy crossbow attached to the stump.[1]

In 1492 DR,[note 1] if the Xanathar managed to obtain the Stone of Golorr, he entrusted the Stone to Grinda Garloth.[4] She agreed to take custody of the Stone but changed her mind and decided to use it for herself, ordering her familiar to hide it. Noska led a band of the Xanathar's minions to besiege Grinda in order to steal back the Stone.[5]


Noska was one of the most trusted underlings of the Xanathar.[6]



  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but Christopher Perkins answered a question via Twitter and stated the year was 1492 DR. Unless a canon source contradicts this assertion, this wiki will use 1492 DR for events related to this sourcebook and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (which is referenced on pages 5 and 98 of Dragon Heist).
