Fendril Vas was the heir to the Vas Estate of textile trade in Stilben and a member of the Cult of Crysa-Thul.[1]  As an NPC, Fendril was played by Matthew Mercer.

Description[edit | edit source]

Fendril was frail in appearance, and his ruddy hair often framed his face unkempt.[1]

Before the Stream[edit | edit source]

In Vox Machina's first adventure, the group was hired by Fendril in Stilben to investigate the seemingly dubious and dangerous new business conglomerate called "the Myriad".  Vox Machina eventually entered a room with a planar rift that pulled the group into a room with Crysa-Thul.  Fendril was actually a worshipper of the stillborn god and had intended to feed the party to this deity like many previous mercenary groups.  Vox Machina prevailed over Crysa-Thul and returned to slay Fendril for his treachery.[4][1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The entire Fendril Vas storyline in Stilben was the first Critical Role concept created by Matthew Mercer, as it was all part of Liam O'Brien's birthday D&D game. The story (and thus the continuation of the campaign) would pick up weeks later in Westruun after Grog went missing (see "The Story of Vox Machina").
