Fara, former Paladin of Zakarum, blacksmith and healer
|Appears in:||Diablo II|
|Service(s):||gossip, Healer and Trading services|
|Portrayed by:||Martitia Palmer|
Fara is Lut Gholein's armorer and, like Akara, Atma, Ormus, Jamella and Malah, automatically replenishes your health and mana when you deal with her. If you are below level 15 she will only sell a few items, but will have a considerably wider selection at and after that level, including magical and socketed. Her prices, like all of Lut Gholein's shopkeepers, decrease as a reward for killing Radament. She was once a Paladin of the Zakarum, explaining her ability to heal injured persons.
Fara, unlike most of world outside of the player and the Kurast Docks, seems all too aware of the corruption of the Zakarum's leadership in Kurast; this may be why she left the paladin order and is now in Lut Gholein. After Tyrael was freed from Tal Rasha's tomb, she was horrified to learn that Baal and Diablo had escaped, noting that Mephisto was close enough to breaking free.
- "I know much about the ancient religions. I was trained as a Paladin of Zakarum in the Eastern Kurast temple many years ago.
- "Welcome, brother Paladin. I am Fara. I was once a devout champion of Zakarum."
- "The shrines in the desert are leftover artifacts from the great Sin War that ravaged these lands almost a thousand years ago. They still function, but most travelers believe them only to be remnants of the distant past."
- "I've no love for brothels, as they can lead honorable men to do dishonorable things. Since the local harems took up hiding in the palace, however, there seems to be a rise in foul tempers."
- "When the Three Evils were bound ages ago, Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred, was moved to Kurast and bound by the holiest of magics."
- "Warriv may not remember me, but I helped him out when I was a young Paladin. There's no need for me to remind him. The rewards for honor will not come in this life."
- "Greiz is a fine warrior and leader, but in his heart, he will always be a mercenary for hire. I cannot be loyal to those who have no loyalty to themselves."
- "Atma is a good, loving woman. But I fear she will succumb to her despair and hatred."
- "Geglash is too confident in his abilities. A warrior's true strength is in his heart."
- "Meshif is an honest man as far as I can tell. He has never pestered me about my past."
- "Perhaps, in time, you will play a part in reclaiming our Order's honor and spirit. You are an inspiration to me, brother Paladin."
- "I believe that the creature you refer to is one of the ancient Horadric mummies from the tombs that lie buried beneath the desert sands. It is unusual for one of his kind to be so far away from his resting place. I sense in this entity a restless and malevolent spirit."
- "I've just been reading something interesting about this sort of undead. Apparently, certain Horadric funereal priests altered the bodies of their dead mages with magical and surgical techniques -- often replacing body parts with those of animals. This was thought to augment their powers, and raise their status in the afterlife."
- "As you have helped Atma and all of us, so shall I help you."
The Tainted SunEdit
- "This unnatural nightfall is no doubt caused by evil sorcery. Drognan might know what we are dealing with."
- "The Claw Vipers practice evil magic. They have also been known to kidnap travelers and sacrifice them to their dark gods."
- "Drognan seems to have taken you into his confidence. This is good, for you will benefit from his wisdom."
The Arcane SanctuaryEdit
- "Ah, the ancient mage Horazon! He believed that he could bend Evil forces to his will. What he didn't know was that Evil uses man, not the reverse. The Vizjerei still revere him as a symbol of man's ability to triumph over other worldly forces. The Church of Light, however, cites him as an example of man's folly."
- "I understand that you've been talking to Jerhyn. Well, if so, then you're the first in a long while... since the trouble began, actually. Do us a favor and try to find out what's got Jerhyn so edgy all the time. OK?"
- "Faith is stronger than any armor. The shield will protect the body, but Faith will strengthen the courageous heart."
- "Hmmm... That doesn't sound like Horazon. I'll agree that he may have gone mad, but from what you tell me, I don't think that's the case. Talk to Drognan... he may know more than I."
- "I feel no pity for that would-be Summoner. His terrible ambition for demonic power was his undoing. You merely hastened the inevitable."
The Seven TombsEdit
- "Legend has it that Tal Rasha lies imprisoned within his tomb, forever struggling to keep the Lord of Destruction bound. His was a selfless act, although perhaps foolhardy."
- "This is terrible news! Baal is in possession of one of mankind's most powerful mages, and the Lord of Terror guides his path. They must be stopped, for I am sure they mean to free their elder brother Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred, who lies imprisoned under the corrupted city of Kurast. I fear you are walking into a great evil, but your faith can save you. May you walk in the light always."
