is a Red Wizard
from Baldur's Gate EE that you first encounter when you meet Neera
. Just after she approaches you, asking for help against "vicious magic bandits," he attacks along with a Thayan Wizard
and two Thayan Bodyguards
If you invite Neera into your party, and keep her long enough to get her quest, you will have a second, and far more deadly, encounter with Ekandor in the Adoy's Enclave area.
