Shar (pronounced SHAHR) is the evil Greater Goddess of Darkness, Caverns, and to a degree, secrets. She is counterpart to her twin Selune, and fights against her and Mystra in an eternal struggle.

As a Goddess she has many powers, but arguably her greatest is an implicit knowledge of all things that happen in the dark. Combined with her subversive tactics, this makes for a nasty enemy indeed. She also hates love, for reasons unknown. Since the events that established Mystra as a Greater Goddess, Shar has found a steady ally in Cyric – even if the two are always trying to use one another.

It is no secret, however, that Shar covets Mystra’s power and position, as she constantly seeks for ways to take this power for her own.

Her symbol is a black circle inside a purple circle.
