King Coltzan III is a famous Lupe who was the great king Sakhmet. He was murdered in the Usurper Plot in Y3 by Princess Sankara. He was known for being generous and a great Warrior. He often liked to tell his stories of battle.
After his death, a shrine was installed in the Lost Desert. However, during the unveiling of the shrine, Neopians were surprised to see that King Coltzan's crown (which was to be inside the shrine) was missing. This led to the Search for the Crown plot. After the crown was found, Coltzan's Shrine was officially revealed, in which players have a chance to get their neopet blessed by Coltzan once a day.
