Sage Olipha is a Lifecrafter found in the Abandoned Farms. He is not hostile by default, but you catch him in the act of shaping. If you tell him that you will report him to the Shapers, he will attack you.
If you sympathize with the rebels, he will teach you how to shape the following with a price level of exorbitant:
Upon starting combat, Sage Olipha will summon a Drayk, cast Speed, and attack you or your creations with Searer. He is highly resistant to magical damage, so fire, acid, or cold spells work better than spells such as Lightning Aura. He will also cast Searing Orbs after the first two rounds.
He is, of course, highly suspectible to physical damage like all Lifecrafters and he has 970 health.
