Bhintel is a Drow rogue, equally deadly with the dagger and the sling. Other than his emergence from the Underdark into the Nentir Vale, his origins and intentions are mysterious. His allegiance to his comrades in arms was called into question in the midst of their fight through Kobold Hall. When the party made camp in a fortified position, Bhintel took the last watch and was gone without a trace when the party awoke. He rejoined the party a short time later in the cave lair of Szartharrax. Though Bhintel’s appearance in so dangerous a place was suspicious, Szartharrax’s vicious offensive took priority. When the fight was over, no questions were asked and Bhintel offered no explanation. Things returned to normal or so it seemed.
