Master Opanrael, the Lord Sage of Phlan, is the Head Curator at Mantor's Library and has served in that capacity for decades. Opanrael is a dignified man of surpassing age, with a surprisingly bright shock of red hair tied in a long braid. His teal-colored eyes have pale-cast, betraying hints of elvish blood somewhere in his family’s history. He wears plain red robes in the style of the other librarians, with a single silver chain and insignia indicating his elevated status as the Master Librarian.
His working knowledge of the Library’s cataloguing system is unsurpassed and given time, he can find anything currently in the Library’s possession. He has a seemingly inexhaustible reserve of energy which he devotes to curating and expanding the library’s vast collection.
The smell of paper, glue and ink fills your nose as the door to the Master Librarian’s office opens. Before you stands a man that appears to be as dusty and worn as the books and scrolls that are stacked neatly around his office.
Opanrael has worked in the library longer than nearly anyone and knows it like the back of his hand. He is a tidy man, almost obsessively such. He places order and structure in very high regard, and has no patience for those who do not display a similar appreciation. He is meticulous in his time-keeping. He is haughty, taciturn, and reserved -- slow to display his emotions, but easily excitable by topics that pique his interest.
The Lord Sage appears in DDEX1-5 The Courting of Fire, DDEX1-6 The Scroll Thief, DDEX1-10 Tyranny in Phlan,and DDEX1-11 Dark Pyramid of Sorcerer's Isle.
“Despite your complete and utter lack of etiquette and more importantly, an appointment, I thank you for your patience.”
“Well, you don't have an appointment, but I may be able to spare a moment.”
“What precisely can I do for you?”
