For years, Fzoul Chembryl served as the second-in-command of the Zhentarim. His shrewd superior, Manshoon enjoyed the support of powerful beholders, while Fzoul contended with the dictates of his deity and rivals inside his own faith. But within the past two years, Fzoul forced Manshoon from power and seized control of the eastern Zhentarim and Zhentil Keep itself. Cunning, self-centered, scheming, and quick-tongued, Fzoul responded to visions sent by Iyachtu Xvim by pursuing a whirlwind path to becoming the Bane-son's Chosen Tyrant. He allied himself with the zealot Teldorn Darkhope in Mintar, and together the two forged a new relic for the faith, the Scepter of the Tyrant's Eye. With the reincarnation of Bane, Fzoul came full circle in his worship of the Black Hand and has been greatly rewarded for his service. Thanks to the power of his deity and his political maneuvering, Fzoul became the Tyrant of the Moonsea.

Fzoul is capable of anything. Quick-witted and a lover of power, he is dedicated to spreading tyranny across Faerûn. He rules Zhentil Keep and holds the titles of High Priest of the Temple of Bane and High Lord of the Zhentarim. In the immediate future, he plans to gain control of Arrabar and Reth to dominate the slave trade from the Lake of Steam. Chondath and Sespech will be next, and Fzoul would like to see Banite temples everywhere.

Fzoul exudes an almost tangible feeling of power. If pressed, he can magically summon no fewer than eight death tyrant beholders to fight for him and even whisk himself to their hidden refuge, if need be.
