The Hand Behind the Mirror was a mercenary company based in Athkatla in Amn.

The Hand Behind the Mirror was composed of shadowcasters. They used their shadow magic to swiftly transport warriors to other destinations via the Plane of Shadow.

They were particularly useful in Amn's war with the Sothillisian Empire (13711374 DR) and the stingers of Oaxaptupa (1374–1376 DR).[1][2]
