A Sea of Troubles
Duke of Baldur's Gate
Duke Abdel has a long history marred by rumour and superstition. Stories about him range from killing a demilich simply by screaming in rage at it, to bringing a full-grown red dragon out of the sky with his own bare hands.
He has almost unmatched political and military influence and power in the human world, but is rarely seen in public, and rarely engages in political or military activities any more, excepting those which he deems to be of sufficient import.
