Halas created an extra-dimensional manor with about one hundred interconnected rooms. He left magical artifacts around the world to transport people into the manor. He made a deal with a blue dragon to guard parts of the manor in exchange for these objects bringing it food.[2] He brought other dangerous creatures into his manor as well.[3]

Halas disappeared hundreds of years ago, likely during the Age of Arcanum before the creation of the Divine Gate.[4][5]

"The Stowaway" (2x45) Edit

Using Comprehend Languages, Caleb Widogast was able to read the name "Halas" from the symbol on a cloak recovered from the Happy Fun Ball of Tricks. Beauregard realized it is an archaic Zemnian name, but could not remember any specific historical figure named Halas.[6]

The Mighty Nein and Twiggy were transported by the Happy Fun Ball of Tricks into Halas's extradimensional manor. They discovered three of the somewhere around one hundred chambers- a stone room with 4 different colored trapped banners, a library with hundreds of locked books, and the blue dragon's hoard.

"Homeward Bound" (2x48)Edit

Yussa Errenis recognized the Happy Fun Ball of Tricks as being a creation of Halas. Yussa knows of Halas and some of his "exploits" but declined to share more with the Mighty Nein.[7]

Relationships Edit

Blue DragonEdit

Even though the blue dragon made a deal with Halas to guard the extradimensional manor in exchange for food and gifts, the dragon wishes to someday grow big enough to eat Halas and take the manor for themselves.[8]
