Blackclaw is the patriarch of the Glumguts family, a clan of dark creepers tasked with keeping up Netheril’s consulate in Evernight. The Glumguts supplement their income with robbery. They do not steal from the undead — they wouldn’t dare — but any living visitors to the city, even those off-limits for ghouls or vampires to eat, are fair game. More recently, Blackclaw told them to leave the Thayans alone, as their close ties to Netheril could be seen as violating the tribunal’s demand that they not bring their war into the city. The Glumguts lurk outside the city, acting as bandits on the Shadowfell Road. Every one of the Glumguts fears hearing Blackclaw’s snarling voice behind them, for he punishes slights and failures in unexpected moments and cruel ways.
