Obadai was a stone giant and the origin of the stone giant race.[1]

Possessions[edit | edit source]

Obadai's crown had the magical power to create undead.[3]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Obadai was one of the many terrestrial sons of Annam All-Father and his wife Othea. His many siblings were his elder brother Lanaxis, Nicias, Masud, Ottar, Ruk, Vilmos, Arno and Julian,[1] and his youngest brother, known as Hartkiller.[4]

Through his father, he was half-sibling to the giant gods Stronmaus, Hiatea, Grolantor, Iallanis, Memnor, and Skoraeus. He was likely related to the gods Surtr and Thrym as well.[5]

History[edit | edit source]

Obadai was born sometime around −30,000 DR.[6] When he and his terrestrial brothers came of age, Obadai's father, Annam, granted each of them an inheritance in the great giant empire of Ostoria.[1] Obadai laid claim to the caverns of the Underdark,[1] ruling as paramount,[7] and his offspring became the stone giant people.[1]

At some point Obadai charged his second son, Illsenstaad, with the task of documenting both the tangible and religious history of the giant race. Over time this culminated in the temple of Hotun-Shûl.[8]

One of the carvings within Hotun-Shûl detailed an incident in which Obadai instructed a group of stone giants to contemplate the surface world and all that laid within it. This is believed to have taken place at what would one day become the Seven Stones.[9]
