The name Companions of the Hall refers to a group of characters from R.A. Salvatore's Forgotten Realms novels who embark on a quest to find a lost kingdom called Mithril Hall thus making up the Companions of the Hall. This party of five, is made up of Drizzt Do'Urden (the dark elf), Bruenor Battlehammer (the dwarf king), Catti-Brie (adopted human daughter of Bruneor), Wulfgar (the barbarian), and Regis(the halfling). They are commonly referred to as the Companions of the Hall both by Drizzt himself, the Harpells (a wizard family in the story) and other people in Icewind Dale (a mythical group of towns in Forgotten Realms) as well as other groups. Their adventures have repercussions throughout the Realms, including the death of Yvonnel Baenre, the head of the most powerful House in Menzoberranzan, as well as that of Akar Kessel, a power-hungry wizard's apprentice who once possessed the sentient Crystal Shard.
Catti-brie (spelled in later publications as "Cattie-brie") is a fictional character in the Forgotten Realms setting, based on the Dungeons & Dragons RPG. She is the creation of author R.A. Salvatore.
Catti-brie's mother died in childbirth, and her father moved with his daughter from Mirabar to Termalaine, one of the Ten Towns. For three years, he was quite successful—but then a goblin ended the man's life. All of Termalaine might have fallen to a goblin onslaught but for the dwarves of clan Battlehammer rushing from their valley to turn back the horde. Bruenor himself saved the orphan girl from death. When the smoke cleared, he claimed Catti-brie as his adopted daughter.
Catti-brie has no memories of the time before Bruenor took her in, but she had a pleasant childhood with the dwarves. During the five years Wulfgar spent in Bruenor's service, she helped him to break the bonds of his barbarian upbringing and bring out the compassion and intelligence that was inside him. The bond between them continued to grow stronger as they adventured together with Bruenor, Regis, and Drizzt Do'Urden, and at one time were betrothed. But then tragedy struck their relationship when drow seeking the death of Drizzt attacked Mithril Hall, and Wulfgar was killed by a yochlol (a minion of the spider queen Lolth) and later given by Lolth to the demon Errtu.
