Raurlor was a human and became War Lord of Waterdeep in 1026 DR. He was previously the leader of the city's army. He aimed to use Waterdeep's wealth and power to create an empire in Northwest Faerûn. By 1030 DR, Waterdeep had the largest navy and standing army it had seen since the Trollwars. In 1032 DR, Rhaurlor was opposed by the mage Ahghairon, who had played a major part in the Trollwars. When Rhaurlor attempted to have Ahghairon arrested, Ahghairon turned Rhaurlor's sword into a snake. It bit him, poisoning him, and he died.
