The ''TableTopGame/ForgottenRealms'' campaign setting and shared fiction universe for ''TableTopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has birthed a legion of popular characters, from Elminster and Drizzt to Arilyn Moonblade and Cadderly. Get the scoop on a whole mess of 'em here.

This is by no means a complete list. As one of the most detailed shared universes (if not ''the'' most) in literary history, there are always more characters in the Realms left to explore.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:The Elminster Series]]
!!Elminster Aumar, Sage of Shadowdale
->'''Race:''' Human
->'''Class:''' Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Good

* TheAce: The greatest wizard Toril even known, one of the most powerful beings and a charismatic man who has a vast array of aqcuitances on which he can call upon.
* AuthorAvatar: Ed Greenwood vehemently denies it, insisting that ''Mirt'' is his avatar, [[LyingCreator but no one believes him]]. (Who says you can only have one?)
* CaptainErsatz: In appearance, at least, Elminster was a stand-in for Gandalf from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' until 3rd Edition, when he suddenly looked like SeanConnery.
* CoolOldGuy
* CrazyPrepared
* DoomedHometown: Once a dragonrider burned a village to kill one of younger sons of late king, but accidentally left alive a single shepherd boy. Who later turned out to be the son of the killed prince.
* InvincibleHero
* KavorkaMan: The number of beautiful women with whom he's had carnal relations is truly staggering.
* {{Mascot}}: Of the Forgotten Realms setting in general.
* RobeAndWizardHat: Though he ditched the hat when 3rd Edition rolled around.
* SmokingIsCool: His pipe is actually a magical artifact.
* WifeHusbandry: Some of the women he's bedded in the past are ones he's raised himself.
* WizardBeard: Varies depending on the depiction, but most sources give him a Merlin-esque beard reaching down to his chest.
* WizardsLiveLonger: The man is over a millennium in age.

!!Mirt the Moneylender
->'''Race:''' Illuskan human
->'''Class:''' Rogue/Fighter
->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Good

* {{Acrofatic}}
* AuthorAvatar: Of Ed Greenwood.
* RedBaron: His loud mercenary youth gave him titles "the Old Wolf" and "Mirt the Merciless".
* RetiredBadass: Fomerly, commander of a mercenary company.

!!Storm Silverhand
->'''Race:''' Human
->'''Class:''' Fighter/Bard/Sorcerer
->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Good

* TheCaretaker: To the ghost of her sister Syluné, until Syluné's HeroicSacrifice. Also, after the death of Mystra, Storm is the only person who can soothe Elminster's insanity when he uses magic.
* [[FatherToHisMen Mother To Her Men]]: Storm acts as a sort of "den mother" to the Harpers.
* LadyOfWar
* MagicMusic

!! Undarl
->'''Race:''' [[spoiler:Malaugrym]]
->'''Class:''' Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' NeutralEvil

* CycleOfRevenge: He [[DoomedHometown burned down Heldon]], which gave one Elminster Aumar the cause for killing him and other Magelords. Which wasn't the end of it -- [[spoiler:Clan Malaug]] would be ''much'' better off if they considered his death a personal affair, rather than the cause for a blood feud quickly adding ''all'' Chosen of Mystra to the list of their enemies, already quite formidable. Thus, while on his own Undarl was but a secondary villain in one book, he was at the root of some very large-scale affairs happening over a great span of time, such as Harpstar War and events described in ''Shadow of the Avatar''.
* DragonRider: He even used this as a gimmick to join the Magelord and was nicknamed "the Dragonrider".
* MultilayerFacade: [[spoiler:A Malaugrim who pretended to be a Yuan-Ti]] posing as but yet another aspiring Magelord trying to infiltrate [[TheMagocracy the magical oligarchy]] of Athalantar.
* SuicidalOverconfidence: Like most of his kin. When Magelords were brought down, he was nearly killed and got a golden opportunity to [[PlayingPossum pretend he's dead]] and go take over another place. Instead, he [[spoiler:pops up and gives Elminster one more reason to kill him]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:War of the Spider Queen Series]]
!!Pharaun Mizzrym
->'''Race:''' Drow
->'''Class:''' Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' Neutral Evil

* TheAlcoholic: This almost got him killed sometime before the start of the series when his sister Greyanna attempted to kill him by luring him into a trap. He didn't realize what was up until it was almost too late.
* AttentionWhore: In spades.
* BadassBookworm: As a mage he has to frequently memorize spells. And he knows how to use them.
* BackForTheDead: In ''The Crystal Mountain''.

* LovableRogue
* MakeMeWannaShout: How he dealt with Belshazu.
* AManIsAlwaysEager: Played completely straight.

* NotInThisForYourRevolution: While he was forced into looking for Lolth by Gromph and the Matrons of Menzoberranzan, Pharaun was mostly in the hunt for the glory, since if he came back successful, it would put him in a better position to become Archmage, should Gromph ever die.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* ReallyGetsAround:
-->'''Ryld:''' You've had relations with a ''goblin''?

* TheBigGuy: Class 5.

* CombatPragmatist: He knows about fencing styles traditional for Drow, but goes with what gives him more advantage instead of [[CombatAestheticist show-off]].
* ConvertingForLove: Played with, but ultimately averted.
* ExoticWeaponSupremacy: By drow standards. Most drow use light weaponry with an emphasis on dexterity, crafted from Underdark mithril. Ryld's blade is dwarven-crafted and friggin' ''huge!''
* InHarmsWay: Wanted more excitement in his life and got plenty.
* IWillOnlySlowYouDown: Attempted to use this in the Cold Fields when he and Halisstra were dying of hypothermia. [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind She didn't let it happen.]]

* BackFromTheDead: She was killed by Drizzt during ''Siege of Darkness'', but was brought back to life by Lolth some time later.

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* IceQueen
* KlingonPromotion: As of the current edition, she slew her sister Triel in battle and is now the current Matron Mother of House Baenre.

* FalseFriend
* GreenEyes
* HumiliationConga: Just as she was getting her {{Revenge}} on Quenthel, the rest of the party showed up and turned the tables completely upside-down. [[BrainFood It didn't end well for her.]]
* KilledOffForReal
* TheMole
* OurElvesAreBetter

!!Halisstra Melarn

->'''Race:''' Drow
->'''Class:''' Cleric/Bard/Seeker of the Song
->'''Alignment:''' Neutral Evil

* ActionGirl
* AndIMustScream: As a "reward" for betraying Lolth ''(and doing such a bad job of it)'', she was transformed into Lolth's emissary, sent to deal with her enemies as her avenger while unable to control her own actions and being perfectly aware of her consciousness while doing so.
* BodyguardBetrayal
* BlueBlood
* TheChosenOne: Was chosen by Elistraee to destroy Lolth, but didn't go through with it.
* ConflictingLoyalty: Between her love for Ryld and her worship of Elistraee, then between her worship of Elistraee or Lolth.

->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Evil

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence
* TheChosenOne: Handpicked by Lolth to be the final piece of her rebirth.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Being such a master manipulator is probably the reason that she became Lolth's chosen vessel.

* DarkChick
* TheDogBitesBack
* GrayEyes
* IJustWantToBeFree
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* OurElvesAreBetter

* TheVamp

!!Gromph Baenre
->'''Race:''' Drow
->'''Class:''' Wizard/Archmage
->'''Alignment:''' Neutral Evil

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Gromph is the Someone Better to his brother, Jarlaxle. When he shows up in the Drizzt books, it's shown that Jarlaxle comes to him for advice and magical assistance with matters that exceed his own expertise, and that Gromph is perfectly secure in laughing in Jarlaxle's face.
* TheArchmage: Rivals Elminster for the title.
* BadassBookworm
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Pretty standard for the drow, though.
* BlueBlood: The eldest son of Yvonnel Baenre
* CrazyPrepared: Just in case he ever got caught by a mind flayer, he prepared a time stop potion and an amnesia potion.

* SiblingRivalry: He and Quenthel fight over Triel's ear on the throne. So much so that he tried to kill her several times.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* WizardsLiveLonger

!!Aliisza
->'''Race:''' Alu-fiend
->'''Class:''' Sorcerer
->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Neutral

* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' threaten Kael.

* JerkJustifications: Types I and III prior to her HeelFaceTurn.

* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Delivered a ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Kaanyr just as he was about to kill her, enabling her enough time to get off one last spell that, eventually, killed them both.

->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Evil

* GlorySeeker
* {{Jerkass}}
* KlingonPromotion: Killed his mother to take over the Scoured Legion.
* AManIsAlwaysEager
* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* RevengeBeforeReason: After being freed from his geas in ''The Crystal Mountain'', he could have just walked away and left the entire ordeal behind him after leaving the party. Instead, he decided he'd help the demon lords of the Abyss wage war on Celestia because the angels pissed him off.
* TheScream: Was ''quite'' pissed to learn that traveling from the City of Brass over to Celestia had taken 12 years instead of the mere moments it felt like.
* TeamKiller: Abandoned the party in ''The Crystal Mountain'' and came back with a host of demons to kill them for getting in his way.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: He ''really'' did not like being forced to work with an angel in the ''Empyrean Odyssey'' trilogy.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Aliisza.
* VillainousBSOD: Had one just as he was about to kill Aliisza, thanks to her ReasonYouSuckSpeech, which gave her enough time to take him out first.

* DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent
* [[GoodWingsEvilWings Evil Wings]]
* TheFightingNarcissist

* HybridMonster
* KnifeNut
* LieToTheBeholder: His handsome drow appearance is just a disguise. His real form is more akin to the shadow dragons that make up half his heritage.

* RedEyesTakeWarning
* [[SharpDressedMan Sharp-Dressed Hybrid]]
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: He sees the destruction of countless of drow cities as a necessary sacrifice to bring about the downfall of Lolth.

* HotBlooded
* GrandTheftMe: Aliisza took over his body (thanks to a spell from Zasian) as soon as she met him for the first time, though not entirely by choice.
* MilitaryMaverick
* OrphansOrdeal: Had to come to grips with the fact of who his parents were and their differences in morality over the course of the ''Empyrean Odyssey'' trilogy.
* ThePaladin
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: Wasn't even born when the series started. He was born while Aliisza was in stasis placed on her by the Triad and was raised by Tauran. The next time we (and Aliisza) see him, he's already fully grown.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Followed in Tauran's footsteps at the end of the ''The Crystal Mountain'' and went to stop Kaanyr from reaching the Lifespring instead of marching off to war against the Abyss.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted. While he is a half-drow, he's actually a good guy. Doesn't mean he's not dangerous to his enemies, though.
* TrickedOutShoes

!!Tauran
->'''Race:''' Astral deva
->'''Class:''' Cleric
->'''Alignment:''' Lawful Good, later Neutral Good

* BreakTheCutie: The fall of Helm and Tyr's disgrace nearly forced him into HeroicBSOD territory.
** Happened again after the death of Mystra, since the group ultimately failed and he thought he had been completely betrayed by Aliisza.
* CarryABigStick: Wielded an enchanted mace in combat.
* FallenAngel: Was stripped of his divinity and immortality as punishment for his crimes against the House of the Triad.
* [[GoodWingsEvilWings Good Wings]]
* GuardianAngel: Both in normal and literal sense for Kael.
* GuileHero
* HalfTruth: His mastery of this and lying by withholding information would make many a devil proud.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Had a feeling something was amiss with the gods and went rogue when no one would listen to him.
* ShipTease: Had a scene where he was feeling particularly heart-broken about what was happening with the gods and got head-on-lap action with Aliisza...
** ShipSinking: ...and then they ''both'' died at the end of ''The Crystal Mountain''.

!!Zasian Menz
->'''Race:''' Human
->'''Class:''' Cleric
->'''Alignment:''' Lawful Evil

* TheChessmaster
* ConsummateLiar: Kind of a requirement to be a follower of Cyric.
* DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent
* ManipulativeBastard
* SoullessShell: Became a Living Vessel after his role in helping to kill Mystra.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Arilyn Moonblade
->'''Race:''' Half-elf (Moon)
->'''Class:''' Fighter
->'''Alignment:''' Neutral Good

* ActionGirl
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Thanks to her half-elven heritage, she's pretty and pale like a moon elf and tall like a human. Other aspects of this trope also apply.
* DeadpanSnarker: most of the time, usually directed at Danilo.
* LadyOfWar
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* SwordAndSorcerer: With Danilo Thann.
* StarcrossedLovers: With Danilo Thann, though it works out for them in the end.

!!Danilo Thann
->'''Race:''' Human
->'''Class:''' Bard or Aristocrat/Wizard/Spellsinger
->'''Alignment:''' Chaotic Good

* BawdySong: He wrote a few. And even taught one to a [[TalkingWeapon singing sword]].
* BlackSheep
* TheDandy
* GoThroughMe
* NonIdleRich: What he actually is. Later, [[spoiler: becomes RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething, due to being one of the Lords of Waterdeep, for a time.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity
* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob: What image he's cultivating. TheDandy singing dubious couplets and less than successfully dabbling in magic -- just [[UpperClassTwit one more good-for-nothing noble]]. He's the lad who pranks people using a singing sword with BawdySong. He "forgot" to make publically known the part where he personally researched the spell allowing to edit the musical repertoire of pre-existing magical items. For example.
* SpoonyBard. Of course. Despite being identified as Aristocrat/Wizard/Spellsinger in 3E, he considers himself a bard. Also, is sufficiently spoony, or at least tries to be seen as such.
* SwordAndSorcerer: With Arilyn Moonblade.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Elaith Craulnober, [[FireForgedFriends eventually]].

!!Elaith Craulnober
->'''Race:''' Elf (Moon)
->'''Class:''' Fighter/Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' Neutral Evil

* AntiHero / AntiVillain: Mostly. He tried to be a full-on hero, then full-on villain, but failed at both.
* BrokenBird: The [[BreakTheHaughty haughty]], though back then innocent, variant. From the prince, Captain of the King's guard, betrothed to a princess and heir to an almost sacred artifact to self-exile and soon enough grave robber.
* EvilParentsWantGoodKids: He knows he's badly messed up and wants his daughter to be a proper elf.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: He doesn't advertise his wizardry expertise and it frequently makes a nasty surprise.
* KnifeNut: He's a skilled fencer and more, but daggers tend to jump into his hand first unless he's against something big.
* LastOfHisKind: He was the last in his clan, which is why [[spoiler:the moonblade he expected to take for granted]] didn't kill an unworthy claimant.
* MagicFeather: Once accidentally did a darkly humorous version of this to himself.
* NobleDemon: As a crimelord, he's obviously ruthless and indiscriminate, but still retains some elven ideals.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Danilo Thann, [[FireForgedFriends eventually]].

!!Szass Tam
->'''Race:''' Mulan human lich
->'''Class:''' Wizard
->'''Alignment:''' Neutral Evil

* AGodAmI: Attempted a ritual to turn himself into a greater god. Failed and more or less destroyed his country in doing so, turning most everyone into zombies. Plans to try again in another country.
* TheArchmage: Of the EvilSorcerer variety, of course.
* AxCrazy: His original characterization was this, along with a dose of CacklingMad. He's mellowed out a bit and doesn't cackle so much, but he still has shades of this.
* DealWithTheDevil: During the EnemyCivilWar in Thay, Szass Tam made a deal with [[GodOfEvil Bane]] to assure his victory.
* EvilOverlord
* TheNecrocracy: Turned Thay into Type I.
* OurLichesAreDifferent
* SurroundedByIdiots: In Neverwinter, at least.

!!Yamun Khahan
->'''Race:''' Tuigan human
->'''Class:''' Fighter
->'''Alignment:''' Lawful Evil

* {{Badass}}
* TheEmperor
* EvilChancellor: His stepmother/wife, Eke Bayalun.
* EvilOverlord
* KlingonPromotion: He became the emperor of the Tuigan by being the biggest badass on the steppes and killing everyone in his path.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Very plainly based on Genghis Khan.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
* RedeemingReplacement: His son, who became a paladin and kept the Tuigan nation united through wisdom rather than strength of arm.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* VillainProtagonist: In ''Horselords''.
* WifeHusbandry: Yamun married his stepmother, Eke Bayalun. He became khahan by killing his father, and by Tuigan tradition the new king inherits the former king's harem.
* WorthyOpponent
