Fonlim was a Gnome who studied at the Neverwinter Academy to become a Wizard. When he was ready for his graduation, alongside the man who would become the Hero of Neverwinter, he was confident and capable. When the Academy came under attack during the graduation ceremony, Fonlim helped fight the invaders.
Fonlim is an NPC from the prologue of Neverwinter Nights. Though it is easy for him to be killed in the battle in the Graduation Chamber, it is possible for him to survive. Either way, however, he is not encountered again during the course of the game.
