Cespenar is an imp who flies around the Pocket Plane in Throne of Bhaal. He was originally Bhaal's butler and for a certain price and components, he can improve or fuse items to make them stronger. Although he can't be killed by Gorion's Ward, they can still hurt him. An exception to this is if Gorion's Ward becomes a mind flayer through the limited wish or shapechange spells, and attacks Cespenar with the mind flayer’s intelligence drain ability.
