Sylgar was the name of the prized pet goldfish of the Xanathar, Zushaxx. As of 1492 DR,[note 2] unbeknownst to its owner, the fish had died and been replaced by the members of the Xanathar's Thieves' Guild several times.[1][2]

Possessions[edit | edit source]

Sylgar had two fishbowls: a larger one that weighed 6,000 pounds (2,700 kilograms) and was over 17 feet (5.2 meters) in diameter, and a smaller one used primarily for feeding that weighed 60 pounds (27 kilograms).[3][4] Xanathar boasted about Syglar's goldfish bowl being made of valued items, but such statements were used to keep servants under fear of their beholder crime lord.[citation needed]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Sylgar's main caretaker was Ott Steeltoes.[5][6]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. The later source Laeral Silverhand's Explorer's Kit calls Sylgar a "Delimbiyr carp". Whether this is a retcon or the identity of just one of the fish's "incarnations" is unknown.
  2. 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).
