The Company of Light and Shadow
Jhaele Silvermane has run the Old Skull Inn for decades, since inheriting it from her father Buldo. Although her once-powerful physique has fallen victim to the passage of years, her sharp tongue and no-nonsense demeanor remain just as strong and vital today as in her youth, and she remains an unflappable, keen judge of character.
In recent years, day-to-day administration of the inn has fallen to her eldest son Durgo Silvermane, who also farms the family plot; Jhaele’s husband died decades ago, and her other children have long since moved away.
Since the beginning of the occupation, Jhaele has played the role of a harmless old crone who is well into her dotage. As a result, she is largely ignored by the Zhentarim and their agents, allowing her to sit unnoticed in the taproom of the Old Skull or wander the halls without attracting attention.
