Lopar the Shaman appears as a human with the head (and, in part, the hands) of a dog. Since when he was young, he was always in search of knowledge and he used to search also the ancient ruins in the Desert of Skulls. Once he stirred the spirit of a High Priestess of Sithera and he suffered her curse, before being able to banish her from the world of the living. Now he lives in a cave on top of Spirit Rock, on the south-west of the Desert of Skulls, not too far from the border with Rimon and Arantis. Lopar the Shaman is a powerful magic user and, above all, a great sage, but, before sharing his knowledge, he challenges the knowledge seeker with a riddle and will help only if the riddle is successfully solved.
