Iylos Mirdan



Lawful Good

Strength: 16

Constitution: 14
Intelligence: 15
Wisdom: 12
Charisma 14
Total stats: 88

Iylos Mirdan is from Amkethran, a Desert City near the border of Tethyr. He is a very serious man at first glance, but a second shows that he has an ironic, slightly twisted sense of humour which doesn't exactly fit with one's general idea of a monk. He fights offensively and aggressively, seeking out the weakness of an opponent before taking them out as quickly and efficiently as possible, and possesses a somewhat sour disposition.

He has never had a family, and was trained as a monk in the Monastery in Amkethran. He is totally devoted to the Monastery, and to a lesser extent Balthazar.

He is confident in his abilities, and can get angry quite easily - he circumnavigates this problem using his monk training, but he is easily riled up. When he joins the party, he makes no pretences of friendship, and bluntly tells you he was sent to find out your intentions. He will not join an evil character.

When asked about his past, IYLOS' face tightens slightly, and he pauses for a moment before speaking. He tells you of his life in the Monastery; of growing up there and how he began training in the monastic way at an early age. As he grew older, he became more and more proficient in the art of wielding a staff, and so began to develop his own style of fighting, which he based upon the movement of the Wind Scorpion. Once he had perfected his method, he began to travel, even though he was only 17, urged by the wanderlust that most young people his age experience. He visted many places along the Sword Coast and beyond, but he returned to Amkethran for a brief break before travelling south to the Anauroch desert.

When he speaks of Anauroch his face seems to light up slightly, and the ghost of a smile flickers around the corner of his lips. He says it quickly became his home, and he spent several years travelling through the area. Eventually, he was recalled to the Monastery and was asked to travel to Saradush to await you, <CHARNAME>.

Against his will, he adds darkly, before turning away and continuing his contemplation of the sights before you.

Nothing gets lost in the IE Modding Community. This will be fixed in the next version!

EDIT: Edited the first post to correct the typo and the symbol mixup.

Hey there, I got a question. Just wondering how Iylos would react regarding the Wheels of Prophecies mod when Sendai is telling PC that Balthazar betrayed her, and that Balthazar is a Bhaalspawn as well. Does Iylos knows this too when he meets PC for the first time? Does he gets to know this when he has the meeting with Balthazar in Amkethran or is he being kept completely clueless about this the whole time?
