Maybe it's an elder artefact? 18.104.22.168 15:30, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
I think it's got something to do with Tumaken, and I imagine that we'll eventually have to put him back together, probably when sliske tries to manipulate the eclipse.Knddnk2 (talk) 23:38, December 28, 2013 (UTC)

[Empty Throne Spoilers] Who is the Kharid-ib?[edit source]
In The Empty Throne, you find a letter written by Bilrach about the Heriditas Expedition. According to thid letter, a Zarosian priest is possessed by a Menaphite entity, in a way reminiscent of Diamond in the Rough. Later, they find a Menaphite Mahjarrat that attacks them in the name of Tumeken. The Menaphite camp also holds the Kharid-ib, which is used to blast the dead with fire, raising them as undead. Later, the Kharid-ib was taken, Temekel was beheaded... and as he dies, he warns that Tumeken will return. He fell almost on the exact spot the Kharid-ib was placed in thr Menaphite camp. It was heavily implied that there was a consciousness inside the Kharid-ib. Which has powers a God of Sun would easily have.
Is Tumeken's consciousness inside the Kharid-ib? Is the Kharid-ib a divine vessel or manifestation for Tumeken, the only way he could survive his explosive end of the Menaphite-Zarosian war? 126.96.36.199 23:37, November 11, 2016 (UTC)
