- "If there is a hell in this universe then its name is Kirgar"
- ―Derath'ath Machlan'n
Kirgar is the second planet in orbit of the blue-white star Dharhalla, it is a world of total desolation.
It is covered in desert and mountains from pole to pole, it is known to have dunestorms that can flay a person to bone in minutes. The cruelest region on this planet was called Sharra's Forge named in bitter irony for the Mother Goddess of legend.
Kirdar was once the throne-world of a mighty empire which collapsed millions of years ago. The A'askvarii were known to have been a part of the empire, living in its shadows.
- The A'askvarii first appeared in Black Goliath #5 (November 1976).
