Aust was a member of the Council of Elders and the father of Anya. He was among the wisest of his peers. Aust received word of Baal's coming from the seer, Caldra. After Caldra's death, Aust and his peers' worst fears came true when Sescheron fell to Baal's army. He was among those who sacrificed themselves to place the Druid spell that now protects Harrogath.
