Kâras was a divine seeker and a former drow priest of Vhaeraun in Maerimydra.[5]

DescriptionEdit

Thin yet muscular, Karas' left side of his face was badly scarred.[6]

PersonalityEdit

Karas was a thoroughly evil individual while he venerated Vhaeraun and viewed others he worked alongside as merely handy pawns. He presented an amiable face when dealing with most people, all the while furthering his own plans.[6]

AbilitiesEdit

As a member of both the secretive Vhaeraunian cult and the Hidden in Maerimydra, Karas had cultivated a great deal of skill at remaining undetected, managing to dodge both Kurgoth Hellspawn's patrols and House T'sarran's undead scouts.[7]

His abilities as a divine seeker of Vhaeraun granted him the ability to both locate objects and thwart glyphs and wards. This combination made him expertly capable of infiltrating even magically warded areas.[3]

PossessionsEdit

Karas typically wore a shirt of elven chain and a magical short sword.[6] Whilst working among the Hidden in Maerimydra he wore a ring of silent spells that could mute a certain number of spells cast each day.[3]

HistoryEdit

Prior to the Silence of Lolth in 1372 DR, Karas was a member of a small Vhaeraunian cult in the city of Maerimydra.[8] However, after Kurgoth Hellspawn's invasion and occupation of the city in Eleint 23 and the subsequent rise of Irae T'sarran's Kiaransaleean cult on Eleint 28, Karas joined a group of survivors called the Hidden, who were dedicated to restoring Maerimydra and driving out the invaders.[7]

Kâras later was one of the Vhaeraunian priests who, after 1375 DR, joined the Church of Eilistraee.

In 1376 DR, Kâras was tasked with the mission of killing Valdar Jaelre, another former priest of Vhaeraun who'd taken refuge in Guallidurth. Kâras found and trapped Valdar but he convinced Kâras that in truth it was Vhaeraun who had killed Eilistraee and had planted a complex deception plot. At last, Kâras decided to spare Valdar for the moment.[9]

In 1377 DR, Kâras was training with the Darksong Knight Cavatina Xarann when they were attacked by a crone of Kiaransalee. Thanks to him, they managed to defeat the revenant monster and Kâras explained about his experience in Maerimydra.[10]

Later, he was chosen to led the nightshadow force to scout the main temple of Kiaransalee alongside Cavatina.[1]

In 1379 DR Kâras led an expedition to Llurth Dreir to investigate about Ghaunadaur's followers.[11]

Following the Qilué Veladorn's orders he together with Valdar Jaelre instigated the followers of Ghaunadaur to attack the Promenade.[12]

During the assault of the Ghaunadaur's followers Valdar explained to Kâras that his plan was manipulate Ghaunadaur in destroying all drow. Understanding he was insane Kâras managed to kill him but only sacrificing himself. In death finally Kâras understood that he had served Eilistraee.[13]

Kâras was later revived, and as the 1490s DR he was again a follower of Vhaeraun[4] (who had returned--alongside the rest of theDark Seldarine--during the event known as the Sundering of Toril and Abeir[14][15]). After his resurrection, Kâras was active in Maerimydra.[4]
