The Thieves of Waterdeep
Durnan "The Wanderer"
Owner of the Yawning Portal Inn
Durnan “the Wanderer” (occasionally known as Durham) is the gruff, burly yet close-mouthed Innkeeper of the Yawning Portal Inn and considers himself the self-appointed gatekeeper to Undermountain. He has a strong dislike for hobgoblins. Mirt believes he may have lost family, friends, and neighbours — and even been left homeless — by hobgoblin raids, although Durnan himself does not speak on the subject. Durnan was born in the remote North. He is known as “The Wanderer” because that was precisely what he spent his youth doing: wandering around seemingly aimlessly, killing monsters. Eventually he took on Undermountain and survived, using the riches he gained to build the Yawning Portal Inn. His hatred of injustice and unfairness is well known in Waterdeep.
