Kaled was an eccentric man, and a genius in his field. He was usually haughty but recently a profound fear had pervaded him. The slightest sound made him jump, and he couldn't stop looking over his shoulder.
Kaled was born and raised in Zakhara. He left Zakhara for Faerûn and trained with the famed gnome inventor Nadul DaRoni. He settled in Mulmaster. At one point, he wrote the acclaimed Codex of Ingenious Contraptions.
In 1491 DR, his research attracted the interest of both Zor Aleksi Drejkov, secretly of the Cult of the Howling Hatred, and the Brotherhood of the Cloak. After the killing of Zel Tregarthen, the City Watch conducted a raid on his laboratory.
