Nalar is the God of evil and destruction in the universe. He was the balance to Arch-Indar. He became mad during the Chaos Wars and became rampant in his ways, when the Dread used him as a tool to oppose Mind. Arch-Indar apparently sacrificed herself to stop him. He was locked away as Ishap and Arch-Indar could not balance him. He is to be released upon Arch-Indar's revival. He did, however, still manage to take a hand in the Darkwar, where it was a fragment of him that helped destroy His Darkness. He also appears in Magician's End, along with Arch-Indar and Ishap, where he says they can only hope that Pug, Miranda, Nakor and Magnus can save the world from the Dread.
