|| ‘Hunger is one of the great trials,’ and Ilmater’s way teaches us to save others from suffering.
|| — Revered Father Akkabar, quoting St. Liwan
Revered Father Akkabar el Souvlak was the head abbot of the House of St. Liwan's Blessing, an Ilmatari monastery on the western coast of Calimshan.
Akkabar was a fat man who loved food and believed that his god, Ilmater, wanted to end the suffering of hunger. The abbey he ran was dedicated to preaching the appreciation of good food and diet.
