Storm Silverhand, called "The Bard of Shadowdale", was one of the Seven Sisters and a Chosen of Mystra.[5]

PersonalityEdit

She was known and loved by many in her home of Shadowdale and elsewhere in Faerûn. She was high spirited, cheerful, and merry. The only thing that seemed to make her unhappy was the unhappiness of other people. She was fond of poetic justice on tyrants, thieves, and swindlers. She was a good teacher and an inspiration to many.[6]

HistoryEdit

Pre-SpellplagueEdit

After centuries of adventuring, Storm decided to settle in Shadowdale, a quiet farming town in the Dalelands. She was a bard by trade and den mother to the Harpers that traveled through Shadowdale. Her position in Shadowdale included the roles of bard, midwife, farmer, healer, and friend to those she likes.[6] She was later caretaker to her sister Syluné, whose ghost resided in Storm's cottage.[citation needed]

Post-SpellplaqueEdit

Storm survived the Spellplague. The plague turned her body into that of a perpetually young woman, approximately 19 years old, but it stole her singing voice, and much of her magical power. She cared for Elminster, being the only one who could treat the insanity that came over him when he used magic.[citation needed]

In 1479 DR, after her sister Alassra recovered her sanity thanks to the help of a Blueflame item and Elminster revealed that the goddess Mystra has returned, Storm traveled to Cormyr along with Amarune Whitewave and Arclath Delcastle in order to get rid of the corrupted nobles who'd allied with Manshoon to take over King Foril I's throne. Using the noble title of Marchioness of Immerdusk granted to her by Azoun IV many years before, Storm traveled through the country, visiting noble houses to discover the traitors and, at the same time, recruiting people to reform the Harpers by Mystra's command. After the goddess of magic was restored by Elminster, she recovered her magical powers.[7][8]

Skills and abilitiesEdit

As a bard, Storm was a skilled harp player and singer.[9]

Storm favored her magic and the longsword in battle.[5]

Storm was immune to all forms of natural electricity, such as lightning.[6]

RelationshipsEdit

MaxamEdit

Storm had a companion for many years named Maxam who was killed by tanar'ri when he and Storm stumbled across a planar gate opened by illithids. Storm was unable to get to Maxam before the demons tore him apart. She wanted to bear his child and the fact that she did not bear a child in the time they were together, or in her time before meeting him, has led to the belief that she is barren.[citation needed]

ElminsterEdit

Storm was a good friend (as well as protector) to Elminster of Shadowdale. They shared a number of adventures together.[10]

TriviaEdit

  • Storm was barren.[11]
