Varriel was a Red Wizard of Thay in Waterdeep in 1479 DR.[1]


In 1479 DR, Varriel discovered notes about a necromancer's laboratory inside Undermountain. Not suited for adventure, she hired Aizel Treemaine, a female elf wizard, to explore on her behalf. However, Aizel joined the doomed Rutherford Urmbrusk's party and disappeared. Soon after, some undead with a symbol associated with the laboratory started wandering the dungeon. So Varriel decided to hire a second adventuring party in order to uncover the matter.[1]


Behind the ScenesEdit

The adventure did not specify if Varriel was a Red Wizard exile with good intentions or an evil minion of Szass Tam.
