Queen Filfaeril's BladesD&D Insider Article
Eye on the Realms
by Ed Greenwood

The beautiful, capable, strong-willed wife of King Azoun IV of Cormyr is now long dead, but she left behind a hidden, living legacy. A small, secretive band of loyal agents, her personal Blades, remain dedicated to furthering her aims for the Forest Kingdom. Still willing to slay and die in her memory, they seek to make “Fee’s Fire” burn in every Cormyrean’s heart and hearth.

Azoun, Vangerdahast, and a handful of other Wizards of War (such as the senior “mother” War Wizard, Laspeera) and courtiers (such as the sage Alaphondar) were aware Filfaeril worked covertly with the Harpers. They also knew that she had her own handful of spies and agents, including some Highknights who were more loyal to her than to Vangey or Azoun. Yet Filfaeril also had a smaller handful of personal agents that she (with the aid of Storm Silverhand and Dove Falconhand) successfully kept secret even from her husband and the all-seeing Vangerdahast.

    About the Author

    Ed Greenwood is the man who unleashed the Forgotten Realms on an unsuspecting world. He works in libraries, writes fantasy, science fiction, horror, mystery, and even romance stories (sometimes all in the same novel), but he is still happiest churning out Realmslore, Realmslore, and more Realmslore. There are still a few rooms in his house with space left to pile up papers in . . .
