Barzan al-Hiyali served as captain-general of Krak al-Niraan in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]


Barzan was a greedy middle-aged man who desired the command of a large army. He did actually care for the soldiers under his command at the keep.[1]


Barazan recognized the military genius of Khaizuran, a warmonger genie, though he secretly detested him.[1]


In order to protect the honor of his family, Barzan staged his own death in Hiyal once it was discovered that he took bribes. He allied himself with the Brotherhood of the True Flame out of desperation after leaving Hiyal.[1]


Barzan owned a magical shield and longsword, a set of armor of the desert evening, and a few healing potions.[1]
