The female human head warrior of Dirgur Sanctuary pays lip service to the dragons, but in truth she relies on herself and her initiates. When she was a low-ranking disciple, the garrison at Dirgur was caught off guard by a raiding party of Kolaghan disguised as a merchant crew. She personally killed the raiding party's leader, a huge orc, although the survivors fled with clan treasures. She now wears the orc's teeth strung on a necklace. Under her leadership, security at Dirgur is tight, and invaders - or even suspicious outsiders - are dealt with harshly. The artisans at Dirgur grumble that this is hurting their trade, but Zhiada insists on the security measures.
