Chronicles of Tellus
Halia Thornton is the master of the [[Phandalin Miner’s Exchange]], and the only agent of the Zhentarim in Phandalin. Ambitious and calculating, Halia has a great deal of influence in the town beyond that which would be expected of a simple merchant. While she bears no ill will toward Phandalin, and has a great desire to see the Redbrands removed, she has no qualms with using the resident mayor, Harbin Wester, to help her gain power. Indeed, only the keenest eyes can see that she is clearly using the foolhardy mayor to further her own political goals in the region.
In 4762 SR, when the Redbrands led by Glasstaff started causing trouble in Phandalin, Halia Thornton was the only individual the gang were not willing to cross. Despite this, Halia took the opportunity to hire Dnalor and Chuffy Mogmurch to spy on the leader of the Redbrands. Their eventual success paved the way for their entrance into the Zhentarim, a decision Halia was all too happy to oblige.
