Velkryst was the house patron of House Baenre and the mate of matron mother Quenthel Baenre circa 1484 DR.[1]


The drow wizard was a former member of House Xorlarrin. Circa 1400 DR, Quenthel chose him as her patron despite his family's objections. Over the years, they had five daughters and two sons but around 1484 DR, Velkryst feared for his life as Quenthel grew bored of his affections.[1]
