Daelan Red Tiger.jpg

Featured in: Neverwinter Nights, Hordes of the Underdark

Race: half-orc

Alignment: chaotic good

Class: barbarian

Description: This Uthgardt barbarian remains tight-lipped about his reasons for being in Neverwinter. His services as a mercenary are for hire, but only for someone with the right coin and temperament suitable to this honorable half-orc.

In the original campaign, Dealan tells the story of his banishment from the Uthgardt tribe, leading to special item-recovery quests, as all henchmen in original campaign do.

Daelan was one of many adventurers to later answer the call to Waterdeep during the drow attacks in the Hordes of the Underdark campaign.

He is notable for his use of power attack and knockdown feats.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

In original campaign, Daelan gives the PC an amulet which can be upgraded in chapter 2 and 3. His quests need the items:

  • Chapter 1: Brooch (found in a chest on a boat in south-western part of Docks district)
  • Chapter 2: Great Axe (found on a dwarf named Gorkan, in Mutamin's dungeon Level 3)
  • Chapter 3: Uthgardt Ceremonial spear (given by Zokan in the Uthgardt keep in Fort Illkard's homesteads, obtainable by killing him or giving the plague cure). Note: In the Enhanced Edition this item is not marked as a plot item so can be sold by mistake.


In the Hordes of the Underdark campaign, Daelan can be found in the Hall of Mirrors in Undermountain level 1 central.
