Zaor Moonflower was the husband of Queen Amlaruil Moonflower and king of Evermeet.[2]


Zaor had dark blue long locks of hair. He was exceedingly tall for an elf, over six feet. With a frame as muscular as a human warrior. His eyes were blue, flecked with gold.


Zaor was born in Semberholme in 572 DR.[4][1] For a time he served in Myth Drannor, before eventually taking on the mantle of leadership in Myth Drannor. He was known as the bearer of one the most powerful elven moonblades, known as the King's Blade.[5]

In 652 DR, Zaor Moonflower becomes one of the youngest officers of the Akh'Velahr in Cormanthyr.[6]

Zaor became king of Evermeet in 888 DR.[2]

King Zaor was murdered at the end of his 432nd year of reign on Ches 2, 1321 DR,[2] in the gardens of the Moonstone Palace by Fenian Ni’Tessine, an assassin sent by Kymil Nimesin. Fenian was originally seeking Princess Amnestria, so he considered the assassination of Zaor a fortunate accident.[7][8][9] After the king's death, Queen Amlaruil became sole ruler of Evermeet.[2]


Zaor and Amlaruil were the parents of Princess Amnestria and therefore the grandparents of the half-elf. They also gave birth to their oldest daughter Princess Ilyrana Moonflower, twins Prince Zhorin and Prince Xharlion. Next came Prince Chozzaster, Princess Shandalar, and two more sets of twin girls Princess Tira'allara and Hora and then Princesses Lazzuar and Gemstarzah. Many years later they gave birth to four more children, first Amnestria, then Prince Zandro, Prince Finufaranell and lastly Prince Lamruil Moonflower.
