Erqynak was an elderly ixzan who was a member of the Xendreth, the ruling council of Malydren in 1370 DR.[1]


Erqynak's primary concern was with spell research. His nickname derived from the effect caused by an original spell he created, called Erqynak's icy breath. Erqynak studied cold-related dweomers and drew his innate spell powers mostly from the school of evocation.[1]
