Beldara was quite famous for her travels, like the one from Icewind Dale to Halruaa and the one from Nimbral to Sossal. She usually preferred to travel with elves or dwarves rather than with humans. She was a terrible cook but could easily read the surrounding area.
Beldara left her home city of Melvaunt when the Zhentarim rose to power in Zhentil Keep, hoping to find less oppressive areas where she could find inspiration for her music, adventures, and treasures. Beldara found a lot of all three.
