Jalira is a human wizard from the plane of Shandalar.


A skilled polymorphist, Jalira was known throughout the dangerous city of Lesh as a swindler and a con artist. She revealed that she had a warrant of execution in the city, though she managed to escape the guards by transforming them into frogs. Alongside her travel companion and fellow ne'er-do-well Yisan, Jalira traveled into the Kalonian Wilds to study the mysterious creatures known as slivers. This led to both Jalira and Yisan briefly becoming slivers themselves, though the Sliver Hivelord quickly stripped them of their new bodies. After escaping the hive with as much treasure as they could, Jalira and Yisan went their separate ways.[1]
