Hum [ Cl:18             ] ZARA the Gatekeeper of the Black Conclave                     February 23, 1997

Character History:


  • ZARA was (unofficially) partnered to Alecto - unofficially, because same-sex relationships are not recognized on TFC. The two would post notes of love poetry back and forth to one another (several of which were written for them by Cordir). The two were a virtually unstoppable killing team.
  • ZARA's "title" was 'The Gatekeeper': This was given because she and Alecto 'barred the gate' to level 20. During the spring/summer of 1996, it was widely believed that only three to four people survived to reach level 20 without being PK'd by ZARA or Alecto.
  • Zara was used as an example by Cordir during A Lesson in Nashite.
  • ZARA received votes for Best Looking Mortal in BlissPoll 2000A.
  • ZARA is mentioned in Shadows, An Answer.
  • ZARA was referenced during The Trial of Alive.
  • ZARA is specifically mentioned in the temple of Katrana: Within A Grand Hunting Lodge

Player Provided Information:

I rank ZARA above the evil shaman team (Huey/Azra/Sadow) for invoking fear in people.
Most prolific newbie killer ever.
