Baerauble Etharr (-116-429 DR,[2] later Baerauble the Venerable[3] and Baerauble the Wise[4]) was a Netherese wizard who lived for many years in the company of the elves inhabiting the Forest Country, and later became the first Royal Magician of Cormyr.[5]

AppearanceEdit

Baerauble was tall and lean with a ratty reddish beard.[6] Once he began living with the elves, he wore elven green linen leggings and jacket.[7]

RelativesEdit

The High Wizard Vangerdahast of Cormyr is descended from Baerauble,[8] as was Amedahast.[9]

BackgroundEdit

The gods do not grant to us all the shining mantle of the hero. Do what you can, and it will be enough.
  — Baerauble Etharr[2]

Baerauble was born in -116 DR.[2]

In -75 DR, Baerauble was captured and imprisoned by a band of humans in the forest of Cormanthor, until rescued by Alea Dahast and a group of elven hunters.[10] He would later become Alea's lover.[11] When Ondeth Obarskyr and his settlers arrived on the land that would later become Suzail in 6 DR, Baerauble introduced himself and became a kind of intermediary between the humans and elves.[7] By 16 DR, there was some feeling within the elven community that he had become a puppet for the humans.[12]

When the kingdom of Cormyr was founded in 26 DR, Iliphar Nelnueve appointed Baerauble as advisor to the first king, Faerlthann Obarskyr, despite Baerauble's disapproval on the grounds that he wanted to remain with Alea and their children.[13]

During the reign of Boldovar Obarskyr, Baerauble used his magic to partially control the madness of the king.[14] He also foiled five plots against the king.[15]

By 245 DR, Baerauble had become known as "Baerauble the Venerable" in his position as High Wizard of Cormyr.[3] At this time, his beard had only a small number of red streaks left, and his hairline had gone back to his crown. He still wore the old-style elven green linens.[16]

By 376 DR, Baerauble was very thin and frail, with a bald head. He had a few white strands of hair where his beard and eyebrows had been. He required a staff to walk anywhere, and had to be carried in a chair over longer distances.[17] He finally died in 429 DR.[2][18]

PersonalityEdit

Baerauble does not enjoy the company of most humans.[19]
