House Phylund (pronounced: /ˈflʌndFEYE-lund[2]) was a noble family of Waterdeep around 1492 DR,[note 1], originally hailing from Tashluta.[3]

What you fear, we master.
  — Phylund Motto[3]

Specializing in the many uses of monsters, they captured and sold monsters both as pets, guard beasts, and arena fighters. Those that couldn't be tamed or used in arena fights were harvested for every part of their body, from their skins, bones, and flesh. They sponsored both monster hunting expeditions and adventuring parties.[3]

They possessed an estate on Copper Street.[3]



  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).
