The Stone Golem saves her energies for the art of combat. Not the art of gum flapping, as my lady describes it. And that's why I'm here. What do you want, outsider? And make it quick, I'm a busy man.

–Bayan's greeting

Bayan is an advisor to the Stone Golem of Shek Kingdom. He can be found in the Faction HQ in Admag, unless World States have moved the Shek HQ.

Bayan is supposedly the one who influenced Queen Esata's decision to make peace with United Cities in order to reverse the slow decline of the Shek population.

Bayan can be talked to in order to propose an alliance with the Shek. He will only agree if the player is an enemy of The Holy Nation, or has slain the Bugmaster or Holy Lord Phoenix. Additionally, he will claim that the player has already earned their camaraderie if they have more than 50 relations with the Shek.

He can be given the Bugmaster, Phoenix, High Inquisitor Seta and High Inquisitor Valtena for their bounties and relations with the Shek.

World States[]

Bayan's only world-state is when he is killed or kidnapped by the player. This will cause a large assault on the player with Esata the Stone Golem herself at the lead and a few of The Five Invincibles in tow along with a large number of Hundred Guardians.
