Murder in Baldur's Gate
This greedy, amoral, young wizard is graceful, charming, and darkly handsome. He was a dancing master in Athkatla until he discovered his aptitude for the magical arts and began draming about the immense wealth that a successful wizard could amass. He left his home to seek out a well-heeled sponsor among the upper crust of Baldur’s gate. Thanks to his charm, a talent for magic, and no apparent scruples, Skoond quickly attracted Duke Silvershield’s attention as a threat and then, when Skoond proved amenable, as a subordinate. Silvershield used his influence to have Skoond made a peer (parliaent’s most recent appointment), and the wizard has been the duke’s lapdog ever since.
