Charname and Caelar Argent
One day the great warrior Caelar Argent came to the city of Baldur's Gate. Thereupon many nobles and other important people came to Caelar with their congratulations, and she expected that Charname also, who was tarrying in Baldur's Gate, would do likewise. But since that hero took not the slightest notice of Caelar, and continued to enjoy his leisure, Caelar went in person to see him; and he found him lying in the sun. Charname raised himself up a little when he saw so many people coming towards him, and fixed his eyes upon Caelar. And when that great warrior addressed him with greetings, and asked if he wanted anything, "Yes," said Charname, "stand a little out of my sun." It is said that Caelar was so struck by this, and admired so much the haughtiness and grandeur of the man who had nothing but scorn for her, that she said to her followers, who were laughing and jesting about the hero as they went away, "But truly, if I were not Caelar, I would be Charname."
