Appearance

You see Glethad.
He appears to be a Half-Sylvan.
He is taller than average and appears to be youthful.  He has tired deep sea blue eyes and fair skin.  He has shoulder length, silky deep black hair.  He has an angular face, an upturned nose and sharply curved ears.
He is in good shape.
He is wearing a crystal amulet, a flowing blood red cloak, a ring of polished metal keys, a grey leather book satchel clasped with a tiny silver osprey, a small black leather backpack, a dusty leather pack, a woven grey tunic, a pair of grey gloves, a pocketed black leather belt, a silver-laced black burlap sack, a grey alchemy bag, a scratched red leather compass case, a pair of dark cotton pants, and some scuffed black leather boots.

Background

As the curator of the Wehnimer's Landing Museum, Glethad helped to display and monitor the Star of Khar'ta relic when it fell from the sky near Wehnimer's Landing. He was later kidnapped by the pirate Thanden when the relic was stolen and forced to try to help him use it. In the end, Thanden was killed by the krolvin Krentuk and Glethad was rescued by heroes of both Wehnimer's Landing and Kharam Dzu. Glethad had become partially obsessed with the Star of Khar'ta and therefore had Mayor Walkar Wellington lock him up until the artifact was recovered or destroyed. Glethad has since returned to his work with the museum, working on new additions and studying the book collection acquired from Grishom Stone.

Beginning in about 5114, Glethad became more and more obsessed with Grishom Stone, becoming one of his most devout sympathizers. In 5115, Glethad helped magically create an illusion that tricked the Hall of Mages into temporarily locking him up in a glass coffin, while the real Grishom Stone escaped to the Sea of Fire. Glethad was released, and watched carefully, and many reported he began to show signs of being mind-controlled by Grishom. To that end, Sir Thadston Andrews took Glethad into secure custody within the Hendoran Outpost, where he has limited space and freedom to move and is watched more carefully.

When Grishom Stone took advantage of mana storms on Melgorehn's Reach in Lormesta 5116 to access the Ithzir world Kol Tar'sken, the Hendoran Outpost was temporarily transported there with Glethad inside it. Stone used Glethad as a probe into the Ithzir world for a few years, until Glethad returned in Eonatos 5118. He remained in the custody of Wehnimer's Landing, until a deal was made to turn him over to Grishom Stone in Fashanos 5120. Glethad was presumably taken to the Deadfall forest.
