Professor Gydd Nephret is an elf and NPC featured in the adventure Seekers of the Ashen Crown. She is a professor at Morgrave University and lives with an academic community on campus called Shava House. It is never documented but it can be assumed Gydd is a history professor who specialises in the Dhakaani Empire since Shava House is a community that focuses on antiquities.


Gydd is outgoing and animated and has a way of making everyone she meets feel as if they are interesting. She tends to use long words and rambles on about topics in which she is interested. However, upon first meeting people, especially adventurers who she perceives as being scary she is fairly nervous.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.
Gydd met a group of adventurers in Sharn and who had recently found a Dhakaani artefact. After researching the artefact she arranges a second meeting with the adventurers though this time invites Lady Danae Ulyan an elf noble interested in artefacts. Some time after the meeting Gydd suspects that Danae is not who she seems and is someone dangerous and so writes a letter to her new adventurer friends and attempts to go into hiding however, shortly after sending the letter she is captured by Lady Danae who was secretly a Emerald Claw agent named Demise. Gydd is later killed and raised from the dead by Demise who intended to use her as a hostage against the adventurers.
End of spoiler.
