A Taste of Blood
- Shar is the oldest of the gods, though she shares this distinction with her hated twin, Selune. It was the interaction of darkness and light, Shar and Selune, that formed creation out of the primeval phlogiston. Shar is the patron goddess of shade, darkness, sorrow, and resentment. Unlike most evil deities, she actively seeks the return of all creation to oblivion. She has maintained a low profile for most of Faerun’s history.
