Lyran Nanther was an inhabitant of Melvaunt who was nominated by the Zhentarim agent and Lord of Shadowdale, Jyordhan, to succeed him. Because Jyordhan was killed by Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun and was dispossessed of the Pendant of Ashaba, Lyran was left with no claim to the lordship and did not become the new lord.[1]

BiographyEdit

Born to the influential Nanther family of Melvaunt, at some point in his life he became a lieutenant of the Zhentarim agent Jyordhan.

Not having any support, nor the Pendant of Ashaba, Lyran did not attempt to claim lordship when he was named Jyordhan's successor in 1345 DR, beginning the Time of No Lords in Shadowdale.[1] Zhentil Keep eventually lent him an army of Zhentilar and Banite priests in 1356 DR, however, and Lyran led it to defeat in the First battle of Shadowdale.[2]

When Melvaunt's Council of Lords discovered Lyran's association with Zhentil Keep after this defeat, they immediately had him executed for consorting with their traditional enemy upon his return. His branch of the Nanther family was then banished from Melvaunt.[3]
