WarDragon's Way of the Wicked
Damodred was part of the original group that would later become the Nessian Knot, while they were incarcerated in Branderscar Prison. He was an elven wizard, specialized in enchantment, possibly a foreigner. He was helpful during the escape, and would likely have become a member of the Knot, but he contracted filth fever during the party’s trek through the marsh outside Branderscar. He died in Tiadora‘s tender care while at Cardinal Thorn’s manor, before the Pact of Thorns was signed.
