Mezlok, under the guidance of Taishiar, hoped to compete in a contest of mages on Mirrankkar. Due to a run-in with a rival on Obsidias, they arrived the day before the contest and had only that day to find a city or town that would accept him to duel for them.
- Taishiar's race appears to be a sort of bipedal tailless griffin.
