Timoshenko, as of 1372 DR, is the Grandfather of Assassins, the leader of the Citadel of Assassins in Damara. He rose to power after Kane defeated the last Grandfather. Backed by the archmage Knellict, Timoshenko surpassed Banak in power, a once mighty priest of Orcus, who was the other candidate for leader of the Citadel. Although Timoshenko is a mighty warrior he is thoughtful, conservative, and takes advice from Knellict often. In recent years, Timoshenko plays the political face of the organization. He lets his lieutenants carry out the dirty work.
