Gyderic resembled a typical-looking human with tangled brown hair and amber eyes, though his pupils seemed small, even in darkness. He affected a mustache, and preferred simple clothes.

Nothing is known of Gyderic’s life before he found Sheen in a Waterdeep smithy and ushered her into the city’s brotherhood of elan. They were lovers until he persuaded her to craft a seemingly innocuous device, which was nearly used in Gyderic’s nefarious plot against the elan elders.

Though innocent of any wrongdoing, Sheen was forced to leave the enclave. After hearing of Gyderic’s death, she learned that the wizard Morard crafted another weapon, which the mysterious Baltazo might have used to avenge Gyderic if she had not destroyed it first.

In Baltazo’s lair, our heroes learned that Gyderic had returned from beyond the grave, and was seeking a diamond known as the Content Not Found: eye-of-the-dawn. Gyderic harmed countless lives in pursuit of this artifact, scouring the memories of Yolette and Firil Starwing, driving Derioch Ysarl insane, and ultimately murdering Lord Cerellis before he was slain by Haden.

No one really knew Gyderic, even those who thought they did. Even-tempered, he thought good manners were of paramount importance. Only toward the end of his life did the magnitude of his ambition and selfishness come to light.

Gyderic was conceived by Jennifer.
