A young Kimmuriel Oblodra (fan art illustration)
Kimmuriel Oblodra was a powerful psionicist of Menzoberranzan and the last known survivor of House Oblodra. He often served as the de facto leader of Bregan D'aerthe while Jarlaxle romped around the surface world. 
In stark contrast to other members of his family, Kimmuriel was unemotional, usually stony-faced and very difficult to get even the slightest of smiles out of. His humor was very dry but often superbly clever. Kimmuriel revealingly said of himself that, "Little of what I do or say is opinion." 
Kimmuriel would much rather improve his psionic powers or studying illithids than look after Bregan D'aerthe. As such, whenever he got the chance, he tried to persuade Jarlaxle to come back to Menzoberranzan so that he could get back to his own work. Still, he recognized that Bregan D'aerthe would not survive for long if he did not run it the way it was intended and he now charged his former (and hopefully future) master for the group's services when Jarlaxle called upon them for aid.
Jarlaxle rescued Kimmuriel from certain death when House Oblodra was destroyed by House Baenre ca. 1358 DR. Kimmuriel quickly became one of Jarlaxle's lieutenants, along with Rai-guy Bondalek, with whom he shared a relationship that could almost be termed a friendship. When Rai-guy turned against Jarlaxle in 1366 DR, he was killed and Kimmuriel became Jarlaxle's second-in-command, essentially becoming the de facto leader of Bregan D'aerthe while Jarlaxle ran around with Artemis Entreri on the surface.
By 1376 DR, after Jarlaxle returned from the Bloodstone Lands, Kimmuriel was still his second and was frequently the public face of dealings with the mercenary band while Jarlaxle ran off adventuring on the surface with Athrogate and others. Kimmuriel was, however, given the power to overrule Jarlaxle if he felt his master's involvement in matters of the surface world threatened the organization as a whole.
