Adeen Tasithar is a drow male, formerly the Taskhand for the Bright Queen's court. As an NPC, Adeen Tasithar is played by Matthew Mercer.



When Fjord talked to him in the Dungeon of Penance, he was bloody and beaten, with one eye swollen nearly shut and his hair tattered and matted. He wore tattered, ragged Rosohna-style clothing, very costly at one point but now torn and dirtied.[1]




"Bathhouses and Bastions" (2x90)

Adeen was allegedly captured in the Ghostlands while fleeing the city of Rosohna after the defeat of Obann and the disappearance of Vence Nuthaleus. While he had confessed to giving two Luxon Beacons to the Dwendalian Empire and being involved in the Angel of Irons cult, he was terribly confused, saying that he had done these things, but he didn't remember how or why. He recognized Vence (being impersonated by Fjord), but didn't know how. He said he felt as if he were going crazy, and knocked himself out banging his head against the wall. The party was convinced he was the victim of some form of mind control, but was unclear as to who had done it to him, and how.

"The Fancy and the Fooled" (2x97)

On the night of the party before the Mighty Nein set sail to the peace talks between the Dwendalian Empire and the Kryn Dynasty, Essek Thelyss confessed that it was he who gave the two beacons to the Empire, in return for their promise to share their research and knowledge with him.

"High Seas, High Stakes" (2x99)

From a distance, the Mighty Nein observed the exchange of the prisoner Adeen for Vence Nuthaleus from the Dwendalian Empire.


Essek Thelyss

While watching the prisoner exchange of Adeen and Vence Nuthaleus, Essek stated that he had once known Adeen for a while. When Jester asked Essek, "Does [Adeen] suck?", Essek replied, "That is a word, yes."[2]
