Description: The captain of Mist of Shadows is interested primarily in alchemical substance and drug trade. The shadar-kai captain has a keen nose for ferreting out drug shipments and uses the apparently random portals into the world with amazing success when it comes to disrupting (and commandeering) such trade. Mur Kar doesn’t particularly care if a particular substance is banned; he cares only what kind of price he can command when he returns to trade the contents of his hold in the bazaars of Abmelech and Ellasar.

Mur Kar double-crossed the Circle (a mercenary band led by the eladrin Scarvarial of Ellasar Island) a few years back to secure a cargo of “traveler’s dust” from destruction. Since then, the Circle and Mist of Shadows have waged a secret and often cold war. The Circle has promised to sink Mist of Shadows, and for its part, Mur Kar has promised to assassinate Scarvarial.
