Ninth Menegril

The Ninth Menegril is a powerful Wizard who resides in the Nameless City in Limbo. The Ninth Menegril is a merchant-prince who obtained fabulous wealth from the inter-planar trade in magical items. Evidently the Ninth Menegril uses this wealth to acquire rare books of magical lore, and has assembled one of the finest libraries in all the planes. He is a patron of the Grey Company, who met him through his trading partner Zekon.

The Ninth Menegril's relationship with the Grey Company has had advantages and disadvantages. At one point, the Ninth Menegril was captured by rival Wizard Tizun Thrane. The Menegril's major domo, Cayhal Bambang recruited the Company's resident charlatan, Arnold Littleworth, to impersonate the Menegril so that his avaricious peers would not raid the mansion in his absence. Arnold barely managed to avoid disaster, but luckily the Grey Company rescued the rightful Menegril and all was restored.

On another occasion, however, the Grey Company accidentally assassinated the Menegril's neighbor, the Lich Patiriki Van. The Assassins Guild of Limbo took offense at flouting their procedures, and on the principle of "guilt by association" retaliated by killing one of the Mengril's servants. It is unknown whether or how the Menegril repaired this insult to his dignity.

The Ninth Menegril has a fondness for smoking exotic cannaboids, a taste shared by his servant, the Shadow K-Dubbs.

The Ninth Menegril is a clone of the original Menegril. There is also a Fourth Menegril and an Eighth Menegril currently active in Limbo.
