Elminster Aumar is one of the most famous and powerful wizards in all of Faerun.

Appearance

As a high-level wizard, Elminster is capable of taking on almost any appearance imaginable.

In his natural state, Elminster appears as a gray-bearded man of weathered visage, gruff tone, alert eyes, and nondescript attire. He was almost always smoking a calabash pipe that was spouting blue or green smoke.

Elminster’s most distinguishing physical feature is his hawk-like nose.

Personality

A natural storyteller, Elminster was normally a witty, clever, and very charming man. He was a consummate actor, however and could be imperious, grave, and terrible as the situation demanded. He rarely revealed the full extent of his true nature to anyone who was not an extremely close friend. He could portray himself as a trickster, a rake, a stern father figure, or any other stereotype he wanted to assume, depending on what he wanted to accomplish or what reaction he wanted to elicit from those around him.
