The Shaperate is the governing organization of the Shapers. Shapers are the historians, scholars, genealogists, and philosophers of the dwarves. They are supposed to be apolitical, devoted solely to their work maintaining the Memories, but this is, of course, impossible.
An example of a Shaper would be a Shaper of Memory: a sage who keeps records of dwarven history and genealogy. Their task is important—almost sacred.
- Shaper Czibor is involved in The Chant in the Deep. If you have Shale with you, Czibor will tell the Warden he would like to buy the golem, but Shale thinks differently (see image right).
- Shaper Assistant Milldrate can initiate Thief in the House of Learning.
- Orta can start Lost to the Memories.
