Tempus Blackthorne was a male human wizard worshiper of Bane before and during the Time of Troubles.


Tempus was a powerful wizard of Zhentil Keep and a member of the church of Bane. He was fiercely devoted to his god, aiding him in all matters of mortal life. In the end, Tempus died trying to perform a spell under the order of his god but the instability of the magic killed him. Strangely for him, Bane had a good memory of the mage after his demise. Tempus was also a childhood friend of Ronglath Knightsbridge and used all means of help his friend.[1]
