Zhade makes sure that those spies unfortunate enough to learn what was unearthed never report their findings
While the excavation of the City of Kehn-sep discovered by Taffial in search for The Cothica Tablet seems to be a collaborative effort between Mipedians, Danians and OverWorlders, it is a secret undertaking nonetheless. Whatever is found within the walls of the Tablet Sanctuary mustn’t be of public knowledge until their writings are fully transcribed by the translation team — admittedly, Donmar and Tharc — and, just like with the Guardians of the Doors of the Deepmines, each one of the Tribes involved assigned a sentinel to protect these findings. As for the Mipedians, comes into play the Dig site Defender.
Zhade, now much faster, powerful and resilient, even with a limited understanding of the ultimate goal, acknowledges the importance of the assignment and uses his Invisibility to contain any infiltration endeavour that may threaten or compromise the expedition within the boundaries of the dig site. Even though Zhade officially remains a Stalker, like many of the Mipedian Warriors he now masters the Earth Element, drastically increasing his efficacy in striking down any trespassers in the first opportunity, as he’s now capable of using Attacks like Whirling Wail and Thunder Shout at their prime.
