Qara is daughter of the headmaster of Neverwinter Magic Academy, Qara is a brash, arrogant young girl who views her abilities at much higher level than her peers. While extremely powerful, she sometimes has trouble controlling the amount of power she has which usually ends up causing trouble for her. She always says what's on her mind, and has no problem telling someone off if they annoy her. She feels that experience is the only real teacher for magic, and studying and scribing is a waste of time. She has a weasel familiar named Tamin. Because of her views on wizards, Qara and Sand never get along well.
She is confirmed to have been killed in the destruction of the King of Shadow's lair, either having been killed by the party after siding with Garius, or, as Ammon states, by having her head split open by falling debris.
