Soares was a human mercenary in the employ of the Cult of the Dragon.

He was hired to sow dissent in Phlan by implicating the Welcomers in a series of high-profile thefts, including those of the false scribe Ellison. He did this by pretending to be a member of the Welcomers (and also, for unexplained reasons, pretending to be an elf). In this capacity, he led a gang of thieves (including the halfling Fulta) to attack the Moonsea Rangers. However, he was defeated, and turned over to Aleyd Burral and the Black Fist for judgement.
