Anthan was a heroic and fearless warrior.
In Hammer of 714 DR, Anthan took part in the Darkwoods Conflict and was present at the Lost Trench. Towards the close of the battle, Anthan killed the enemy commander; a nycaloth named Gaulguth. Anthan impaled Gaulguth with a 7-foot-long spike of mithral. As Gaulguth died, he swung his great axe Heartcleaver and split Anthan in two, killing him instantly.
