The Gathering of Power
Captain Ishtir Austram
Captain Ishtir Austram leads the Waterdavian Intelligence service (nominally part of the watch but effectively an entity in it’s own right reporting to the Lord’s of Waterdeep directly)
Captain Austram himself is an exceptionally efficient and well ordered man who lets nothing escape him. Many who have to deal with report coming away with the feeling that they have just been reprimanded by a school headmaster.
Austram has eyes and ears all over the city some more visible than others. For years now he has relied on the fiercely loyal Sergeant Coleman to carry out some of the tasks that require a heavier hand.
