The term Al-Hadhar referred to the sedentary inhabitants of the towns and cities of Zakhara, the Land of Fate.[1]


Al-Hadhar had easy lives compared to their desert nomad kin. These people never dealt with the constant search for water, food, and shelter that dominated the lives of Al-Badia.[1]

Al-Hadhar came from all walks of life including the nobility, merchant families, laborers, and craftsmen. Most respected honor and followed the teachings of the Enlightened Gods.[1]
