Balduran was a famous seafaring explorer, and founder of the city Baldur's Gate.
He was the first inhabitent of Faerûn to travel to and explore Anchorome, aboard his ship Wandering Eye. On this adventure he aquired vast wealth and on returing to his small home harbor, invested much of this wealth into fortifying the towns walls.
He then set off to explore Anchorome further but never returned. His money was put to good use however, and the small harbor soon became Baldur's Gate, one of the largest cities in Faerûn.
We never meet Balduran in the game, but towards the end of the orginal game and during the expansion pack (Tales of the Sword Coast) we are given the opportunity to aquire numerous items that once belonged to him.
