Iarno Albrek, also known as “Glasstaff”, was a human wizard and the direct leader of the Redbrands bandit gang.
He was a human wizard that was simply known to most as Glasstaff for his weapon of choice, a magic staff made of glass. Iarno was initially a member of the Lords’ Alliance, who was sent to the town of Phandalin to establish constabulary (as the town did not have a powerful authority). However, sometime in the 1480s DR, Iarno broke ties with the Lords’ Alliance and created the Redbrands under the guidance of Nezznar. Iarno knew of Nezznar from his contacts in the Lords’ Alliance and negotiated a meeting with the drow, seeing a chance to line his pockets.
He successfully escaped capture when our heroes infiltrated the dilapidated Hideout and defeated the Redbrands. His current whereabouts are unknown.
“For the last bloody time, it’s Glasstaff. Glass-staff! Not Glass-Dick, Stiff-Glass or Glass-Stuff! Anybody that fails to get my name right will provoke the wrath of the Redbrands!” – Iarno Albrek
