Gilfron was a friendly and pleasant individual. However, knowing that the roads were dangerous, he was cautious with every stranger. He pretended to be of a higher class than he was, pretending to speak with a false educated air.
In 1489 DR, leading a small caravan from Hillsfar to Phlan, he met an adventuring party hired to investigate rumors of dracoliches and ghost ships wandering the area. Gilfron directed them to a suspicious island ferry.
