Kaad is a member of the Dhakaani clan, a tribe of hobgoblins described in the Eberron campaign setting. However, he can be used in any game and has no unique rules.

He is presented as a venerable master who would make a good mentor for a PC monk, or a contact for players investigating in hobgoblin areas. Despite his high level and many abilities, his physical stats have waned to such a degree that he can no longer combat chaos and lawlessness as he once would. For that, he needs young, strong, pupils.
