Short-statured and hunch-backed, with a shaved head and such bad myopia that he was always squinting, his nickname was very fitting.
No Ziar possessed an enchanted walking stick that bestowed an amazing power: the ability to summon and talk to pond turtles.
Ever greedy, this wu jen was ready to steal whatever he could lay his hands on that had magical powers. He stashed his stolen treasures in a keep located high in the Vorkani Mountains.
No Ziar also brewed potions that transformed people into aquatic creatures. He gained notoriety for tricking helpless people into having a quick meal and changing them into fish, such as tuna or whitefish. It seemed he and his familiar then ate the fish themselves.
