Voghiln the Vast was a human skald and a companion of the Bhaalspawn known as Gorion's Ward in the the Year of the Banner, 1368 DR.[note 1][1]


Voghiln was a man of two great passions: alcohol and women, both of which he pursued relentlessly. For all his bluster, Voghiln's amorous advances were rarely returned, and any romantic entanglements were casual, short-lived affairs. He secretly longed for a meaningful relationship.[1]

He suffered from tremendous guilt after becoming the sole survivor of his original adventuring band. He tried to drown his sorrows in drink, and would always consume nine drinks every night, to honor the memory of each member, even after forgetting their names.[1]


Voghiln owned a magical helmet fashioned from mithral. He occasionally used it as a secondary weapon, hitting enemies with headbutts between weapon strikes.[1]


For over a year, Voghiln was part of an adventuring company consisting of himself, the sisters Audria and Ulvana, the elf Ondiasi, the Vaasan Wicuf, the wizard Zerihyda, the bard Evald, and the brothers Conal, Donal, and Taig. They traveled the north of Faerûn extensively, visiting locations like Vaasa and the Great Glacier. However, all his companions were lost in one fateful battle. Consumed with guilt, Voghiln traveled south, attempting to forget his painful loss by overindulging in drink and female company.[1]
