Victoro Cassalanter (pronounced: /vɪkˈtɔːr ˈkɑːsɑːlɑːntɛrvic-TOR-oh KAS-ah-lan-ter[3]) was the lord of the Cassalanter family of Waterdeep in the late 15th century DR.[1]

ActivitiesEdit

Victoro was schooled in the divine arts. He was the leader of a Cult of Asmodeus that involved certain nobles in Waterdeep.[4] Victoro was a priest of Asmodeus.[1]

On the surface, Victoro posed as a successful banker, philanthropist, and follower of Lathander but this was only a façade he needed for his businesses.[1]

HistoryEdit

In 1489 DR,[2][note 1] Victoro and his wife Ammalia Cassalanter signed a contract with Asmodeus, in which they agreed to give up the souls of their children in exchange for power, good health, and long life. Their eldest son, Osvaldo, was taken immediately and transformed into a chain devil. Terenzio and Elzerina, their youngest twins, were also scheduled to be taken by the archdevil when they turned nine years old in 1492 DR,[note 1] to be transformed into lemures. The only way to save the children was pay to the Nine Hells a tremendous amount of coin and the souls of numerous people in sacrifice.[5][6]

In 1492 DR, Victoro and his wife planned to recover the lost gold of Dagult Neverember and use it to buy back the souls of their children.[7] Victoro focused on searching for the gold while Ammalia was busy with other preparations for the ceremony to save the souls of their children.[8]

If Ammalia and Victoro presented the gold and ninety-nine souls to a devil servant of Asmodeus in time, then the souls of Terenzio and Elzerina would be safe.[6]

If the Cassalanters managed to obtain the Stone of Golorr, five cultists protected protected the Stone inside the Cassalanter mausoleum in the City of the Dead. However, two of the cultists, under the secret orders of Victoro Cassalanter, killed the other cultists and left one for dead in order to better hide their trails.[8]

Later, Victoro sent his doppelganger valet Willifort Crowelle to recover the Stone and return with it to the Cassalanter villa.[9]

PersonalityEdit

Victoro was always polite and slow to anger but deep inside he was a self-interested individual. He cared only for gold and power and for that he sold the souls of his children to the Nine Hells.[1]

NotesEdit

  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).
