Bhaal (pronounced Beh-HAHL), the Lord of Murder, was originally a mortal and one of the Dead Three. Along with Bane and Myrkul, Bhaal took the portfolios of the ancient deity Jergal. Despite his most common title, Bhaal was the god of death, but he especially favored violent or ritual deaths. Patron of assassins, Bhaal was feared throughout Faerûn - especially in the island realm of the Moonshaes.
