A Disciple of Jan'alai is present in Tal'aman, the Amani tribe's enclave in Zuldazar.
- As the Dungeon Journal says that this was initially the name of the troll, either the spirit took the name of its host in Zul'Drak, or the host was named after the loa to start with. The spirits near the final boss of Zul'Aman are nameless, possibly hinting that they did not initially have names.
- However, the act of a loa adopting its hosts' name would be fairly odd, as the Amani loa would have been the only ones in history to have done so, in that case, as all other loa have their own names that they are referred to by other loa, trolls and their worshippers.
