Phandelver + Storm King and beyond
Laeral Silverhand is known as the Lady Mage of Waterdeep. Together with her partner Khelben “Blackstaff” Arunsun they lead the wizards guild of Waterdeep and often tend to matters of policing in the city.
They are the public face of the magistrates and guardsmen in Waterdeep and also the Wizard’s guild.
She deputized the party after they uncovered a human slavery ring and brought it to the attention of a magistrate.
Piergeiron the Paladinson who is the current Open Lord of waterdeep, is the one who appointed her and Khelben in charge of the policing in the city and surrounding lands because of their connections and effectiveness, so while many speculate that Lady Silverhand and her prestigious husband are actually part of the council, they are not open lords so it cannot be confirmed, but what is known, is the power and influence they have within the city and the good they have done for it.
