- "It was wrong of them to burn my temple. It angered the Great Shepherd."
- ―Mirri Maz Duur
The Great Shepherd is the deity worshiped by the Lhazareen, mirroring the importance of shepherding in Lhazareen culture. Its worship is largely restricted to Lhazar itself. The worship of the Great Shepherd includes the presence of "godwives" or priestesses, such as the maegi Mirri Maz Duur.
In the religion of the Great Shepherd, all men are considered part of a single flock, thus healers devoted to this god will cure the injuries of any man, even conquering enemies.
