Lady Aalangama Gulderhorn was Countess of Morninggold, Title Chancellor of Tethyr, Marquise Scion of Siamorphe, and commander and one of the founders of the Order of the Silver Chalice. She was also the unofficial Crown Ecclesiastic of Tethyr.
Aalangama appeared much older than she actually was, because of her level of stress and hard work.
Aalangama had a driven personality. She was also somewhat of a chatterbox, her favorite topic being matters of religion and politics. This personality trait was bothersome to Malcor Grannox, the Count of Ithmonn. She was impatient and grew easily frustrated with hypocrisy among the nobles who pretended to be religious.
As Countess of Morninggold and commander of the Order of the Silver Chalice, Lady Aalangama saw to the defense of the eastern borders of Tethyr. As Title Chancellor, the countess oversaw matters of hereditary ascension and records. In this role, she worked closely with the Heralds of Faerûn, especially Heralds Blue Velvet ( Uriel Honnice in 1370 DR), Shining Helm (Jhessar Talltankard in 1370 DR), and Thorntree. Countess Gulderhorn's decisions on matters of succession could only be overturned by the queen herself or a majority vote of the Royal Privy Council.
Aalangama was a priestess of Siamorphe living in Waterdeep at the Assumbar Villa. In 1358 DR, she joined nine young nobles to defend the Sea Ward of Waterdeep from Myrkul's horde. Thanks to Aalangama, they declared themselves a knightly order in 1359 DR.
She was a member of the Gulderhorn family of Morninggold and rightly a noble, but her hereditary lands and titles were sold to Zaranda Star during the time period of the Tethyrian Interregnum in 1362 DR to help fund the Order's operations.
At the First Siege of Myratma, only three of the founders of the Order, including Aalangama, survived the battle. Queen Zaranda restored Aalangama's lands and titles back to her family as a reward for her bravery and leadership in the battle.
