Guenhwyvar is a creature of magic from the Astral Plane and her magic is bound to a seemingly indestructable Onyx figurine. She takes the form of a large black panther and is undoubtedly Drizzt's closest companion. The onyx figurine was originally the property of Masoj Hun'ett who had no regard for the way he used the magic. While she can't speak, it is clear that she dearly loves Drizzt and his comrades. Many are the times when Drizzt would have perished were it not for the intervention of his beloved Guenhwyvar and her fighting prowess. The magic that holds Guenhwyvar is powerful and can only be called forth from the figurine up to 3 times per week, for a total of 24 hours.
CattiBrie grew up amongst the tough Dwarves of Icewind Dale. As a young girl her parents were killed in a Goblin raid but this beautiful, auburn haired human female, was taken in by Clan Battlehammer and grew up as tough as the rocks that surrounded her. Cattie-Brie was the first occupant of Icewind Dale to warmly greet Drizzt when he was out on Kelvins Cairn. She, perhaps more than anyone who knows Drizzt, can understand the struggles he goes through in his daily attempt to find acceptance among those goodly races of the Realms who see no further than his skin colour. Cattie-Brie, under the tutelage of her friends, has become more than a match for any foe who wishes to oppose her and her great bow, Taulmaril the Heart Seeker.
Wulfgar, Son of Beornegar|
As a young boy Wulfgar grew up among the fierce Barbarians of Icewind Dale but was captured by Bruenor in a barbarian raid on TenTowns. Instead of killing him as a prisoner, Bruenor made Wulfgar serve him and Clan Battlehammer for 5 years to pay for the sins of his people. Wulfgar served well and grew into the huge man of barbarian legends. He now wields Aegis Fang, the magical warhammer, made for him by Bruenor, his adopted father.
Bruenor Battlehammer grew up among the great halls of Mithril Mall but then watched as the halls were overun and sacked by the dragon Shimmergloom. Both his Father and his Father's Father were slain trying to defend the halls and the rest of Clan Battlehammer were forced to flee to save themselves. They eventually arrived in Icewind Dale and over the next two hundred years Bruenor guided them as their king. Bruenor is as true a friend as anyone could hope to have. He is a typical Dwarf. He loves the treasures of the earth and has enormous love for those he considers his friends and family but like other dwarves he likes nothing more than bashing Goblin skulls with his axe. A rock solid dwarf, who is actually the opposite. Under his hard skull is a caring brain, but you couldn't tell him that: he'd deny it to the grave. With his rock think stubbornness, he made sure that his adopted daughter, and his "adopted" son Wulfgar were brought up well.
She becomes friends with Drizzt and envies his and Cattie-brie's lives. She is the controller of Silvermoon, though she wishes to get out in the fighting. She becomes great friends with Drizzt and helps him in any way she can.
This blind old man could shoot an arrow better that any with the help from his owl friend Hooter. He found Drizzt and helped him when the orcs attacked him. He took Drizzt under his wing and taught Drizzt all about the surface; its languages, its good and bad races, the names of the trees, and the names of the animals. He gave Drizzt a god to follow, Mielikki the name given to his heart.
Zaknafein was Drizzt's father, and was the first of his friends. He taught Drizzt how, and when, to fight. He risked his own life so that Drizzt could go free.
