Thorvin Twinbeard was the chief engineer of the Xanathar's Thieves' Guild in Waterdeep during the early 1490s DR.[1]

Activities[edit | edit source]

Thorvin was the chief engineer and trapsmith for the Xanathar. He was also a paid informant of the Harpers and informed them of the Xanathar's plots under the cover of his maintenance inspections in Skullport.[1]

In 1492 DR,[note 1] he was working on a mechanical beholder while three duergar and one gazer protected him.[2] In truth, the gazer was spying on Thorvald under orders of the Xanathar, who suspected the dwarf.[3]

He lived inside the beholder's lair. His pet project was a pulverizer to destroy for good the petrified victims of his master but he used it as cover to gather information to sell to the Harpers.[3]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  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).
