Who are the characters depicted in the cover of Dragon Heist?

enter image description here

I've just started DMing this, and I'm reading through the 1st chapter, but I don't recognize the characters here. The beholder in the background looks like Xanathar. None look like Volo or his missing cousin Floon.


These are the characters described in "Choose Your Villain(s)," in the introduction:

  • The beholder looming behind is The Xanathar,
  • the eyepatch- and large hat-wearing drow is Jarlaxle Baenre,
  • the human couple are Victorio and Ammalia Cassalanter, and
  • the hooded figure is one of Manshoon's clones.

And piled around them are pictured, of course, the eponymous Dragons.

  • \$\begingroup\$ That hooded figure is clearly Thanos, infinity gauntlet and everything. \$\endgroup\$ – SeriousBri May 27 '19 at 11:38

The dark elf with the eyepatch and the fancy hat is Jarlaxle, a character from the Drizzt series.
