The Flaming Fists (formerly: the Flaming Fist) was a mercenary company based in the city of Baldur's Gate on the Sword Coast, where its members served as city guards.[1] They also worked outside the city; their sphere of influence extending just south of Beregost but stopping before Nashkel.[citation needed]

The Flaming Fist Mercenary Company, as it was then called, was founded around 1345 DR by Eltan,[2] a formidable fighter and Grand Duke of Baldur's Gate.[3]

While the Fist's base of operations was in the city of Baldur's Gate, they had other forts and establishments in Anchorome, Chult and Tethyr.[4] The latter of which proved to be a source for recent hires by Duke Eltan during their decades-long civil war.[2]

By 1479 DR the Flaming Fists had changed from a mercenary group to the police and military force of Baldur's Gate.[1]
