Shadows of the Past
Iarno "Glasstaff" Albrek
Wizard, ex-friend of Sildar, head of the Pandalin Redbrands
Iarno is a short dark-bearded human mage. His nickname comes from the beautiful glass staff he carries with him. Iarno puts on airs of gentility and courteous manners. But beneath his genteel demeanor, hi is just as thuggish and arrogant as any Redbrand outlaws.
Iarno was a friend of Sildar. Originally sent to Phandalin to set up a constabulary, he instead assembled a group of outlaws and local ruffians to secure his own position in town. He seems to be in contact with the Black Spider, but does not his real identity. The Black Spider promised the share the secrets and the wealth of the Wave Echo Cave with him in exchange for his help.
