|“||The Argents are destined for greatness. Triumph or death!||”|
Caelar is also known as The Shining Lady, she's the main antagonist in Siege of Dragonspear event.
She hailed from Waterdeep, where her family had ties with the Order of the Aster. Her uncle Aun Argent was a noted paladin in the Order and Caelar was also a member. Divine blood runs through the Argents family, it had lain dormant generations till Caelar was born. As a child of nine, she was tasked to watch over the Order's library where she succumbed to temptation and read aloud from the Tome of The Nine then got herself locked in Belhifet's torture cage in Avernus. Aun Argent made an offer to Belhifet and trade his own soul for Caelar's.
Afterward, Caelar left the order, then she met Hephernaan, a strange cleric who is a servant of Belhifet. Hephernaan hid his true identity well and managed to convince Caelar to lead a crusade to invade Avernus in order to rescue her uncle. They gathered an army and marched to Dragonspear Castle, where it was known that a gate to the Nine Hells existed.
Caelar is only available during the final battle against Belhifet in Avernus by the end of Chapter 12, to recruit her, you must have at least one free spot in group and choose the right dialogue during the opening scene of the battle, else she either joins as a guest or she fights against you.
Gameplay analysis Edit
As aasimar she has 50% resistance to fire and cold, plus a natural magic resistance of 10%.
She's worth a party slot if you plan to keep her alive at the end of the battle to view different endings, but if you intend to let her be a guest, you should conserve some Greater Restoration scrolls to heal her when she's in trouble.
In-game biography Edit
|“||When pressed to reveal her past, Caelar tells a tale repeated a thousand times over in her mind. As a child, Caelar Argent labored under the high expectations that came with her semi-divine heritage. Her early life in a monastery of the Order of the Aster was a hard one as Caelar's temperamental nature did not fit comfortably with the Asters' devotion to discipline. She believed, even then, that she was destined for great things. One day, alone in the chapterhouse library, she attempted to grow her powers by reading from a tome of forbidden knowledge. Instead she unwittingly opened a gate to the realm of the devil Belhifet. Caelar's soul should have been forfeit, but her uncle, Aun Argent, offered himself to the devil prince and was pulled down into the Nine Hells in his niece's place. Caelar never forgot his sacrifice. She vowed that someday, somehow, she would find a way to rescue her uncle from the pit of Avernus. After more than a decade in seclusion, she made contact with the Revered Brother Hephernaan. He offered her a path to Avernus, but walking it would not be easy. She would, he claimed, require three things: an army to fight the legions of the Nine Hells, possession of Dragonspear Castle, and the divine blood that was the key to opening the portal beneath the castle...||”|
