Yaga-Shura was a fire giant, a Bhaalspawn and a member of The Five. He led a siege on Saradush in an attempt to kill all the Bhaalspawn there.

Yaga-Shura had acquired invulnerability to all attacks by having his heart removed and kept burning with magical fire. Nevertheless, he was the second one of The Five to be killed, shortly after he destroyed Saradush.

He was raised by a woman named Nyalee, who helped him achieve invulnerability. Yaga-Shura did not show much thanks though, as he also took her heart to stop her from undoing the magic that kept him invulnerable.
