Brian Donner

Article written by Kranar Drogin

Brian Donner (? - 351 AC) was a Knight of the Sword who's family was unknown, and he was an old friend to Aran Tallbow and Derek Crownguard both of whom he used to quest with. Brian was able to exude a subtle strength and he had silver-shot blond moustaches that were curled.

War of the Lance

During the War of the Lance, Brian journeyed with both Aran and Derek to the city of Tarsis. While there, they found the old library and began their research, searching for information on items that would be able to help them against the Dragonarmies. While there, he helped in rescuing Sturm Brightblade, Alhana Starbreeze, Tanis Half-Elven, Gilthanas Kanan, and Flint Fireforge from imprisonment.

Following the attack on Tarsis, Brian journeyed with Tasslehoff Burrfoot, Gilthanas, Laurana Kanan, and Sturm to Ice Reach to gain back the Dragon Orb that was located there. While in route, they saved a polar bear from some Minotaurs who were tormenting it.

Brian continued with the group all the way to Icewall Castle (Brackenrock), where Brian fought against Feal-Thas, but was killed when Feal-Thas stabbed him with his sword.


There was another story that Brian was kept by the Ice Folk along with Aran, while the others journeyed to the castle. It was said he died while defending the Ice Folk in the Battle of the Ice Reaches.
