Durnan "the Wanderer" (occasionally known as Durham[3]) was the gruff, burly yet close-mouthed Masked Lord of Waterdeep[4]who ran the Yawning Portal Inn and considered himself the self-appointed gatekeeper to Undermountain.[3] He was known for having explored Undermountain.[5]

PersonalityEdit

He had a strong dislike for hobgoblins. Mirt believed he may have lost family, friends, and neighbors -- and even been left homeless -- by hobgoblin raids, although Durnan himself would never speak on the subject.[6]

HistoryEdit

Durnan was born in the remote North.[6]

Durnan was known as "The Wanderer" because that was precisely what he spent his youth doing: wandering around seemingly aimlessly, killing monsters. Eventually he took on Undermountain and survived, using the riches he gained to build the Yawning Portal Inn. His hatred of injustice and unfairness earned him a place with the Masked Lords.[citation needed]

RelationshipsEdit

Durnan was friends with Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun.[3] He had a secret association with the Red Sashes.[6]
