The Fallen Leaves of Mithrendain
A truly odd sight in Mithrendain, Kagen Blackblade is a drow innkeeper that runs one of the only genuine outsider-friendly inns in Mithrendain, a place called The Waystop in the Old Battery. Kagen is well-known throughout the entire city as a smiling drow who tells some of the wildest stories. Though many eladrin regard him as an oddity – a Drow that is not a bloodthirsty killer — few truly know him well enough to make much of a judgment. Kagen’s nickname, Blackblade, comes from one of his incredible tales about a dagger he once owned that had a pitch-black blade that crumbled to ash when he came up to the surface. Few believe Kagen’s tales, and most see them as little more than fanciful stories of varying believability designed to entertain his patrons and keep them in the inn for a little while longer.
