Bendu Olo was the Colovian king of Anvil during the First Era and the Baron-Admiral of the All Flags Navy who led the campaign to wipe out the Sload from the coral kingdom of Thras in 1E 2200 after the Thrassian Plague. The All Flags Navy consisted of forces from the sources of the Colovian Estates, Nibenay Valley, Summerset Isles Hammerfell, and likely High Rock as well. Following the sinking of Thras, he returned to his home city and began converting the then Anvil Fortress into the Castle Anvil.[UL 1]
It is possible that Bendu Olo is in someway related to Olaj Olo, the supposed Nordic demi-god of mead, who fought alongside Ysgramor's Five Hundred Companions,[UL 2] and Rusio Olo, a knight of the Order of the Hour.
