An immortal sphinx which jealously guards the Oasis of the Golden Peacock.
Hazar is an immortal ibis-headed sphinx created by the Order of the Golden Peacock to defend the Oasis of the Golden Peacock in their absence. In the ages since, Hazar has become highly territorial and a bit mad, killing almost all who encounter the oasis.
Recently, Hazar has been forced to share her home with Emrett Mazrid, a powerful interloper who seeks control of the oasis for her own purposes. As neither party has the wherewithal to force the other to yield, Hazar was forced to accept a tenuous detente until the arrival of the party. The sphinx determined that she could use their puissance to accomplish her goals and concluded a deal with them. After the adventurers had killed or driven off Mazrid and her eladrin, Hazar slaughtered Mazrid’s surviving lackeys and then attacked the party. After a hard fight, Bartholomoo Shieldslinger frightens the badly wounded immortal into allowing the party to leave without further molestation. Hazar agrees on the condition that they leave immediately and never return to the oasis.
Hazar is currently licking her wounds and enjoying her renewed supremacy over the Oasis of the Golden Peacock.
