Nauzhror Baenre was a high-ranking drow abjurer and house wizard of House Baenre in Menzoberranzan. He was a master of Sorcere and for a time in 13721373 DR he served as acting Archmage of Menzoberranzan.[2][1]


Nauzhror was plump and wore black robes and a perpetual smirk.[2]

Nauzhror had a familiar: a plump, hairy spider that resembled its master and sat on his shoulder.[2]


Nauzhror once polymorphed Andzrel Baenre into a riding lizard, which promptly bit Nauzhror in the buttocks. After that, the relationship between those two high-ranking males of House Baenre was somewhat strained.[3]

During the unexplained disappearance of Gromph Baenre (who had in fact been imprisoned by the Lichdrow Dyrr) during the Silence of Lolth in 13721373 DR, Nauzhror served as the acting Archmage of Menzoberranzan.[1] During that time, Nauzhror scried the Battle of the Pillars of Woe and saw the drow Army of the Black Spider losing the battle. Matron Triel Baenre then sent a contingent of House Baenre to allow the Menzoberranyr forces to retreat.[4]

In 1373 DR, after Gromph had returned, Nauzhror assisted him telepathically during his spell battle with the Lichdrow.[5]


Nauzhror was Matron Mother Triel Baenre's first cousin, once removed.[1]
