Ipon retiring, he returned to the Neverwinter region, his original home.
Daran is a member of the Order of the Gauntlet, a devout and vigilant group that seeks to protect others from the depredations of evildoers. The order is always vigilant, ready to smite evil, enforce justice, and enact retribution against any who try to subjugate or harm others. Though he is no nlonger active in the order, he keeps an eye on happenings around Phandalin. He is happy to trade news with fellow adventurers, especially those who appear to hold these virtues.
Daran is concerned about the Redbrands, and he would like to see a group of adventurers teach the ruffians a lesson.
