Shar Thizdic is the Overlord of Zone 66, as appointed by Oteron Avillar. A man of many talents, Shar is a shrewd administrator, mechanical genius, and a powerful mentat. Less than two months after his appointment, Thizdic had subjugated Zone 66 into an industrial police state, with a vast majority of the populace slaving away to manufacture the war machines he has created.
Shar Thizdic has invented numerous applications of steamtech including: steam mecha, hydraulic armor, steamborgs, and psionic steam dolls.
Shar Thizdic is an amoral demagogue cut from mad scientist cloth. In some cases, even other Berranothian leaders (not famous for their senses of right-and-wrong) despise him as well. Jaster Myryryl, Lord General of the Protectorate’s forces, finds his creation of the steamborg to be reprehensible.
