Old favourites time, is it?
— Dragon Magazine #104


Elminster Aurmar is among the most powerful wizards of the D&D setting, and arguably one of the most powerful humans of all time. He was created by Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms setting, and is known to be able to traverse dimensions, as he was a personal friend of Bigby and other major wizards of the Greyhawk setting.

He acted as a Chosen of Mystra, and was known to be a lover of the god until she was slain. Elminster has at least three children. His history is extensive due to the collection of novels published around him. His adventures have led him to many places, including a tomb in which he was trapped in stasis for an unknown amount of time, took the throne of his native kingdom as the true heir, and battled the avatar of the god Bane.
