Zhar the Mad

Zhar the Mad is a Unique Counselor Mage on Level 8 with a North British accent, and one of the most dangerous Unique Monsters in Diablo I.

Speaking to Zhar will activate a quest, in which he will give you a scroll. You can also click on all the books on the pedestals in the library, which will drop different scrolls. Trying to grab the books on the bookcase will infuriate him and will cause him to attack you. He is most easily defeated by being cornered or, even better, catching him between the two lamps left and right in front of the bookcase. He will not be able to phase himself out and reappear every few seconds, leaving enough time to hit him once or twice, without attacking the character.

In Diablo III, sometimes a Nephalem Rift may bear his name, possibly implying that either he was a Nephalem, he was able to open these rifts, or just as a reference to the first game.

Lloigor the Crazed is a third-game equivalent to Zhar the Mad.
