Vellgard Manor is one of the few remaining noble villas in the Blacklake District that still houses one of its actual owners. It seems to be less an estate and more of an armed compound, with forbidding metal gates and a large number of personal guards.
The house belongs to Mordai Vell, who is one of Neverwinter’s more unusual residents – he’s dashing, debonair, charismatic – and a tiefling. A product of an unusual dalliance in the south, Mordai was destined to be nothing more than a footnote in the family’s secrets, until the Spellplague. During the cataclysm, he found himself the sole heir of the family, and so he moved in. Now he is a handsome, wealthy, and popular figure, even despite his heritage, and he uses it to get what he wants.
