Saleska Mintharl was a human woman and a priestess of Tempus. She held the title "Shield of Tempus" and was a Merchant Duke of the city of Calaunt in the Vast in the mid–14th century DR.[1]


Saleska was formerly an adventuress in Bellas's Band, under Bellas Thanatar. Each member of the band grew wealthy by following Bellas's orders.[1][2][3]

Around the 1330s DR, Bellas's Band took power in the city of Calaunt. Bellas named himself Supreme Scepter, while Saleska and the others took the title of Merchant Duke. They now grew wealthier and more powerful by following Bellas and supporting his rule.[1][2][3]


Saleska and the dukes grew increasingly wealthy and powerful by following Bellas and supporting his rule.[2][4][3] In all decisions on major policies, Saleska had one vote while Bellas had two.[1]

Saleska and the Dukes often confiscated property and magic from visitors, allegedly "for the benefit of the city", but mostly used it only for personal gain and use, to increase their power. They acquired a large collection of magical items this way, and still sought more.[1][2][3]

Saleska lived in a palatial house close to the Fortress of the Five Vultures.[1]
