The East Phandalin Company
A gruff 50-year-old retired human warrior
Sildar Hallwinter is a kindhearted human male of nearly fifty years who holds a place of honor in the famous griffon cavalry of the great city of Water deep. He is an agent of the Lords’ Alliance, a group of allied political powers concerned with mutual security and prosperity.
Members of the order ensure the safety of cities and other settlements by proactively eliminating threats by any means, while bringing honor and glory to their leaders and homelands.
Sildar met Gundren Rockseeker in Neverwinter and agreed to accompany him back to Phandalin. However, en route, the pair were ambushed by Cragmaw goblins and taken prisoner. Initially taken to the Crawmaw hideout, Gundren was separated from Sildar and taken on to Cragmaw Castle. Sildar was rescued by the heroes several days later, and escorted safely to Phandalin, where he rewarded the heroes with 50 gold pieces.
Sildar wanted to investigate the fate of larno Albrek, a human wizard and fellow member of the Lords’ Alliance who disappeared shortly after arriving in Phandalin. With the heroes’ help, Sildar learned that larno actually became Glasstaff, the leader of the Redbrand Ruffians. After the ruffians were dealt with, Sildar turned his focus to restoring order in Phandalin, charging the heroes with rescuing Gundren from Cragmaw Castle, as soon as it can be located.
Sildar wants to assist Gundren in reopening the old mine, and help restore Phandalin to a civilized center of wealth and prosperity.
