Ibrandul (Ih-BRAN-duhl) was a chaotic neutral lesser deity of the Underdark, worshiped in Calimshan and other parts of the Shining South.[1]


Ibrandul was worshiped as a deity with power over the underground, darkness, and stealth by Calishites. His worship was popular with adventurers.[2]


Ibrandul was allied with Mask and Ilmater. He was an enemy of both Lolth and Shar, as both desired his Cavern (Underdark) portfolio, as well he was an enemy of Lathander as their portfolios were directly opposed.[1]


He was killed by Shar in the Underdark during the Time of Troubles of 1358 DR. The goddess of secrets masqueraded as the dead deity for a while, unbeknownst to his followers.[2]

During the events of the Second Sundering in 1486 DR, a Chosen of Ibrandul appeared, in the shape of a female drow named Ashdra. She was captured by the Red Wizards of Thay and taken to their so-called Temple of Shadows.[3]
