Tyrda Q'Helvor was Pommarch on the Council of Six in Amn from 1362 DR, the Lady of House Q'Helvor from 1359 DR, and the first woman on the council.


She was only the head of a moderately successful family of pottery merchants from Esmeltaran before being chosen by the Iltarch for an empty position in the council.


Very secretly, Tyrda was an able wizard and Rhinnom Dannihyr, having discovered her secret through the Shadow Thieves, planned to use Tyrda as a secret weapon against the Cowled Wizards in a time of need. She eventually agreed with Dannihyr's plan only because her position in the council greatly advantaged her businesses.


Tyrda was trained by her father to trust only herself and moneys and suspected of everything.[1]
