Ben-hadar is an archomental.


Ben-Hadar is an Archomental, the Elemental Prince of Good Water. On the Elemental Plane of Water, within the reef of Ssesurgass, Ben-Hadar rules over good-aligned water elementals. He is an arrogant, selfish boor, but he fights evil at every turn.


Ben-hadar is described as an arrogant, selfish boor, so he has few allies. However, the eladrin queen Morwel is rumored to be his occasional lover, and the slaad lord Rennbuu enjoys visiting him. Rennbuu admires the massive coral reefs of Ben-hadar's home, delighting in transforming the reef's many colors.

Ben-hadar has little to do with his evil counterpart, Olhydra, but he has feuds with two good archomentals, Chan and Zaaman Rul, who view him as an isolationist with a repugnant personality.

Bwimb was often the biggest thorn in the side of Ben-hadar, polluting the pure waters that Ben-hadar nurtured. Bwimb II continues her father's wicked ways in this regard.


Ssesurgass is the fortress of Ben-Hadar. A portal in the Court of Stars in Arborea leads to Ben-Hadar's stronghold.
