The Avenan Empire
Young human, born in the Avenanhma caer around the same time as Zimbo. He grew up alongside the young gnome, and the two explored much of their region of the caer together.
Early on, Zakaria displayed a talent for the arcane arts, and was encouraged by his parents to keep his talents hidden. Unfortunately, such things are difficult to hide, especially for a person as curious and reckless as Zachariah was. Shortly after the death of Zimbo’s father, Zakaria was taken away by the Imperial military for the dangerous transportation to Misr. He was quickly indoctrinated into the Imperial way of thinking about magic, and soon betrayed the secret of Zimbo’s talents to his masters at the academy.
