Najm is the dashing god or goddess of adventure and curiosity of Zakhara. He is one of the eight Great Gods of the Land of Fate and wants his followers to venture forth and make the unknown known.

Najm is alternatively described as female or male.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 51 Like other Zakharan gods she is above such concerns as alignment, as curiosity may drive an adventurer to seek out the corners of the earth to help those in need or a necromancer to defile the living and dead.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 45 Her church seeks out the hinterlands and heathen parts to spread Enlightement.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 51
