Raghnall, Rhynn’s father, had been Lord Hugh Kyrmac’s trusted advisor and best friend for many years. He disappeared some twenty years ago on the Isle of Snowdown, when on an important mission for Lord Hugh. Raghnall was one of the most powerful wizards of the Moonshae Isles, known and feared for his powerful Thunder and Lightning Spells, that could fry even a Blue Dragon. It is rumoured his magic might have been his downfall, for the Cowled Wizards of Amn relentlessly persecute all arcane spellcasters without a license. Recently, Hern and his Slow-Advancing Snail Party have discovered that Raghnall has turned his cloak, and is now the head of a group of Cowled Wizards. From a rich-furnished tower he rules over a pair of dragons and a bunch of incompetent henchmen, including a necromancer and a lapinomancer.
