Sheba Hagadias, Librarian of the Stilt

In the narthex of the Stilt, cloistered beneath a marble arch and close to her Argent Fathers, she muses over a tattered codex. She's safe here, but it wasn't always that way. As a youngling, her own kind understood her little. Only when she was gifted a copy of the Canticles Chromaic did she learn comfort, or mirth, or reason. Her journey to the Stilt took several years, but now that she's here, Sheba seeks to consolidate all the learning of the ages tucked away in Qud's innumerable chrome nooks. Here, she prepares a residence where pilgrims can study the wisdom of others and bring themselves nearer to the divinity of the Kasaphescence.



Sheba Hagadias, Librarian of the Stilt is a unique character in that her base creature type changes on every playthrough. She will always have a cloth robe and spectacles, but will also have any additional items that her base creature type will have. Her pronouns will be set to She/Her if her gender is not female. Her pronouns will not change if she is female and has a different pronoun set.

Donating Books

Main article: Book#Book Experience

As the Stilt librarian, Sheba can be given books in exchange for experience points. She accepts both authored (yellow-named) and procedurally generated books, including relics, but not merchant advertisements. Generally, authored books give more experience.

Under normal circumstances, previously donated books can be read from Sheba's trade screen using Tab (options) and selecting Read. However, if Sheba is a creature that restocks, she will restock her inventory, replacing the books.


There are some creatures that Sheba cannot be, which are tagged with NoLibrarian in their object blueprints. Currently, pulsed field magnets, breathbeards, and elder breathbeards are excluded.

Because Sheba is a Mechanimist convert, all creatures that are excluded from converts also cannot be Sheba. All creatures excluded from dynamic encounters and/or give reputation are excluded. An additional filter is used to make sure Sheba has an inventory to trade with. [2]

Sheba has a 1 in 5000 chance in being an animated object.
