Harkle Harpell is a wizard in the Forgotten Realms fantasy world, created by author R.A. Salvatore.

Appearance[]

Harkle is a little shorter than average, with an untidy mess of black hair. He wears a set of worn wizard's robes, and has an air of enthusiasm about him that somehow manages to be unnerving.

Story[]

Harkle and his fellow Harpells live in the small town of Longsaddle. The Harpell clan are all wizards, and better than average at having spells backfire (with spectacular results). Even so, the Harpells are powerful spellcasters, and their village is a good place to visit, if excessive use of magic does not frighten you. Harkle himself has traveled more than most of them, visiting Mithral Hall and helping to defend against the drow invasion, and traveling the Sword Coast with Drizzt Do'Urden and Catti-brie. One of his few accident-free success was when he created a spell called the Fog of Fate, which transports the user to wherever they need to be to accomplish their goals. Upon the initial casting of the spell, Harkle wound up in the middle of the Sea of Swords, but Drizzt was there with the crew of the Sea Sprite, and he was quickly rescued. Under the effects of this spell, the events of his journey with Drizzt and company were magically recorded meticulously in a journal. Upon revealing some significant details from this journey to aid Drizzt, he was magically whisked back to Longsaddle, wherein his memory of the previous adventure with Drizzt and his friends apparently erased. Harkle still resides at Longsaddle, working on any number of magical experiments.
