In the twisted court of Azlaer, a bizarre ritual was enacted every night of the full moon. Within Azlaer's massive palace lay a courtyard open to the sky above. This courtyard housed a large pool full of man-eating sharks. For amusement, Azlaer would invite well-known citizens from nearby towns to his estate for an evening of dining and entertainment.

This entertainment consisted of Azlaer playing this harp, the effects of which removed any fear from his guests. Randomly, Azlaer would single out a guest and have him or her walk into the shark-filled pool. When in a particularly sadistic mood, Azlaer would first toss in blood, inciting the sharks into a frenzy that ended with the death of the helpless guest.

Devotees of Helm finally lashed out against Azlaer and his cruel practices, destroying the estate, slaying Azlaer, and appropriating the harp for more beneficial uses.
