Prince Melegaunt Tanthul was one of the youngest Princes of Shade.[5]

PersonalityEdit

He had a knack for deception, combined with a talent of false empathy, that made him a formidable manipulator. There were few people outside the royal family that he could not win over with his combination of charm, good looks, and seeming sincerity. Indeed, he practically made it his life's work. It was believed that he tricked Galaeron Nihmedu into opening the Sharn Wall in Evereska, thus unleashing an army of Phaerimm on Faerûn.[5]

RelationshipsEdit

Melegaunt had twelve brothers, but among them, only Dethud Tanthul favored his policy of manipulation.[6]

ActivitiesEdit

Melegaunt was a spy from Thultanthar, also referred to as the City of Shade. He had a barely above average aptitude in the magical arts, but was trained exactly like the rest of the princes and the secret kept safe on pain of death by order of his father, Telamont. What Melegaunt lacked in arcane aptitude, however, he made up for in guile.[5]

He died in battle against the lich Wulgreth of Ascalhorn within a pyramid in Karse Butte.[3]
