Avaereene was one of the most trusted agents of the Xanathar, the leader of the Xanathar Thieves' Guild of Skullport.


Avaereene was a cruel and efficient person; she enjoyed creating darkenbeasts to serve her deadly whims, and she intended to supplant the Blackstaff as the most powerful mage of Waterdeep.[1]


Avaereene was a skilled mage and slaver who served the Eye, capturing potential slaves in the seamier wards of Waterdeep at night. She led the Eye's snatch-and-grab kidnapping agents, known as the Hand. She commanded great loyalty from her forces, and they did anything to prevent her harm or capture.[1]

In 1479 DR, Avaereene was active as a lich and leader of a thieves guild called the Slightess.[2]
