Balthazar was a human Bhaalspawn and the last of The Five. He was probably the most powerful of them and was the only one who did not want the power of Bhaal to cause chaos. Before his death, he was the leader of Amkethran. He wanted to destroy the power of Bhaal forever and felt the only way of doing this was to first acquire all of Bhaal's power and then kill himself, hoping Bhaal will die, too. He has three stances, a fiery Solar Stance, an invisible Shadow Stance, and a defensive Lunar Stance; when in Lunar Stance he has a host of immunities, most notably including Timestop.
