Arakon was an archmage who attacked the barbarian tribes of Icewind Dale with a band of mercenaries.[1]


The archmage fought the tribes of the Uthgardt and Reghedmen, but when his army appeared to have been beaten, Arakon opened a portal to the Lower Planes. To save both sides from the demon hordes, the shaman Jerrod sacrificed himself by throwing himself into the gate and creating the Jerrod's stone which destroyed the passageway to the plane: Baator.[1]
