In 1477 DR her twin was attempting to summon an imp when she accidentally summoned a cambion named Lorcan. The cambion was more interested in making Farideh rather than Havilar a warlock because Havilar had more of a warrior’s personality. Unbeknownst to Farideh, she was descended from Bryseis Kakistos, one of the Toril thirteen, the original thirteen tiefling warlocks who made pacts with Asmodeus. Lorcan was a collector of warlocks and Farideh completed his set of descendants of all thirteen.
The summoning resulted in a fire that burned down the family’s barn and attracted the attention of the village. When the villagers learned what had happened they exiled Farideh, Havilar and Mehen and the three were forced to work as bounty hunters to scratch out a living. While on the road, Lorcan would occasionally show up and teach Farideh a new spell although Mehen was so hostile to the cambion that Lorcan began appearing to Farideh only when she was by herself.
In 1478 DR, the trio was on the Sword Coast in hot pursuit of Constancia Crownsilver, a knight of Torm, who was wanted by the temple of Torm in Cormyr for dereliction of duty. They chanced upon a caravan under attack by orcs and helped defend the caravan. The twins befriended Brin, a young runaway acolyte of Torm, who was on the run from the priestess that was the trio’s quarry. Brin convinced Mehen and the twins to travel with him to Neverwinter where he would present himself to the Tormites in the hope that they would get word to the priestess that he was in Neverwinter. The trio hoped to capture the priestess if she showed up.
While in Neverwinter, Mehen and the twins became entangled in a plot by the archdevil Glasya to trick Asmodeus into entering into hostilities with the Abolethic Sovereignty. They rescued Mehen from one of Glasya's succubi agents and caused enough trouble that Glasya abandoned her plan.
Later in 1478 DR, Mehan, Farideh and Havilar returned their bounty Constancia to Suzail through the Waterdeep portal. Due to lack of funds, only Mehan and Constancia were able to make the journey through the portal while Farideh and Havilar remained behind in Waterdeep. With nothing better to do, Farideh tagged along with Tam Zawad who was investigating magical page from an ancient Netherese book. Farideh was invited to a party at the mansion of the caravan master who purchased the page and she and Tam's Harper partner stole the page.
Tam's daughter Mira was able to locate the origin of the page, the lost Library of Tarchamus, and Farideh, Havilar, Tam, Mira and friends journeyed to the library where they destroyed Tarchamus the Unyielding's mummy and removed the magical tome from which the page was ripped. In the process, the library was detroyed.
Farideh has a love-hate relationship with her master Lorcan. She wants to get out of the pact that she never really wanted in the first place but is unwilling to take the necessary steps. She had at least one occasion to kill Lorcan which would have ended the pact but she chose not to. She loves her sister and adopted father although she frequently argues with both.
Farideh is tall and thin and has one golden and one silver eye.
