Firebead Elvenhair was a mage who traveled the Sword Coast in search of books for the sages at Candlekeep, such as Gorion. That he made purchases for the monastery was a badly kept secret among the book dealers of Baldur's Gate and Beregost.
Firebead Elvenhair appeared twice in the Baldur's Gate computer game. First in the Candlekeep Inn were he tasked the player to retrieve a scroll from Tethtoril. He later appeared in Beregost, searching for The History of the Fateful Coin.
