Mordenkainen of Oerth[1] is the name of a prolific archmage who is responsible for many powerful and useful spells. Mordenkainen is an acquaintance of Elminster Aumar's; the two have met on numerous occasions at Ed Greenwood's house on Earth to exchange spells and lore.[2]

Bigby was once an apprentice of his, and the two are related to some degree.

Much information is available about him, and an equal amount of misinformation.

His toenails appear to be a venerated item in some places.[3]
