Mirt "the Moneylender" was a fat, wheezing old rogue, and retired adventurer. He made his fortune as an adventurer in Undermountain after a colorful career as a mercenary general. During this time Mirt, then known as Mirt the Merciless or the Old Wolf or Lord Walrus.[1] made many enemies all over the Sword Coast, but also a few friends, notably Durnan a fellow adventurer and Undermountain explorer.

Post SpellplagueEdit

At some time in late middle-age, Mirt was imprisoned within a magical hand axe. In 1479 DR a Cormyran noble named Marlin Stormserpent stole the axe from another noble family, mistakenly believing it was an artifact of The Nine. He called Mirt out of the axe and Mirt escaped into Suzail.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Outwardly Mirt appeared to be a loud, tipsy braggart, but only a foreigner to Waterdeep would underestimate his agility and cunning. These qualities made him far richer late in life, as an investor and business man, than his years as an adventurer ever did, despite his being one of the few adventurers to emerge alive with wealth from Undermountain.[3]

RelationshipsEdit

Mirt character

Mirt the Moneylender

Mirt was a Harper as well as a Masked Lord of Waterdeep and had a heart of gold, despite the relative frequency with which he entered unruly tavern brawls. Many of the commoners suspected Mirt to be a Masked Lord, and Mirt on more than one occasion engaged in secretly spreading rumors stating that he was not.

He was one of the few trusted friends of Evermeet and had a portal that could give him access to the Elven island when he so wished. He carried a Purple dragon ring, which allowed him to speak in Azoun's name.[4]

FamilyEdit

His wife and heir[5], Asper, was an informal member of the Gray Hands.
