Shar, also known as Nightsinger, is a neutral evil greater deity of darkness, the night, loss and forgetfulness.

She is worshipped by those who deal in the night, who hate the light and who feel bitterness and loss. Since ancient times she has been in bitter feud with her twin sister Selûne and their fights caused the creation of several other gods, including Jergal and most notably Mystra, who in time also became Shar's enemy. Shar is also the mother of Mask.

The Dark Moon heretics believe that Shar and Selûne are two sides of the same goddess.
