Vajra Safhar-Blackstaff

The Blackstaff of Waterdeep

Waterdeep’s Watchful Order of Magists & Protectors have served the massive city and the lands beyond before even the spellplague ravaged their order. Their leader and archmage holds the title of Blackstaff and resides in Arunsun Tower in Waterdeep. It was said to have been built in 1150 DR and that, besides being protected by extensive magical wards, is haunted by spirits of days passed.

The current Blackstaff was originally from Tethyr origin. She was the talented long-term apprentice of the former archmage (Samark Blackstaff)and took over the position after he was assassinated last year. Shortly after his death, Vajra had a disturbing vision of a devastating and very possible future. Vajra broke tradition and began training aspiring apprentices in earnest. Her visions got worse and in an effort to gain insight on them she traveled to Neverwinter to meet with the Order of the Many-Starred Cloaks. There at the tower she fell victim and was trapped along with the remaining Many-Starred cloak in the Astral Plane.
