Rauthlor was an adventuring warrior and leader of the evil Shadow Shields adventuring company. Somehow, he acquired the fabled Crown of Stars.
Around 1310 DR, Rauthlor and his fellows went to Myth Drannor and enter the crypt of the Symbaern family. There they battled the guardian baelnorn lichIlrune Symbaern. However, duirng the battle, the entrance to the crypt collapsed, killing most of the adventurers. Ilrune recovered the Crown from the bodies.
However, Rauthlor and two of his fellows rose as wights and fought Ilrune again and again, trying to recover the Crown.
In 1370 DR, Rauthlor had created some other wights and skeletons to help him finally defeat Ilrune.
