|Location||Detlas, Nivla Woods|
|Quest Involved||Mushroom Man|
Being a Villager, Yahya was born in Gavel alongside his three brothers: Mehme, Nohno and Sohso. At some point in their lives, all four brothers joined GavelExcavation, an organization dedicated to studying meteor samples from all across the province, most notably in the Gylia Plains. One day, they were tasked with studying the colored meteors located around the plains: the Blue Meteor, the Red Meteor and the Yellow Meteor. Yahya set up a laboratory on the Blue Meteor, and began studying the effects of cosmic magic, both on other types of magic and on the mind.
However, Yahya's mind slowly started slipping more and more, and so did the minds of his brothers, Sohso possibly being the only exception. His passion for mushrooms started to become an obsession, and the research notes that he and his brothers left behind for other GavelExcavation scientists became almost completely illegible. As a result, research of the meteors slowed down, which led to the organization shutting down and moving to the Wynn Province, where other cosmic objects similar to the meteors were found.
Following the dissolution of the company, Yahya and Nohno moved to Wynn, Mehme moved back into his house in Gavel, and Sohso travelled to Fruma. The brothers were, by now, completely insane and turned to different obsessions, while also growing to despise eachother. Yahya himself moved deep into the Nivla Woods where he made a house dedicated to mushrooms, earning the alias of "Mushroom Man". However, what nobody else knew is that Yahya also built a secret laboratory under his new house, likely dedicated to studying mushrooms.
Today, Yahya lives in his house in the Nivla forest, obsessing over mushrooms, while also having little to no recollection of his life in Gavel, only faintly remembering his brothers.

Dialogue in Shattered Minds
- ???: Y-you!! I remember you...g-g-go away! Leave me and my mu-mush-mushrooms alone!
- ???: Fine, you j-jerk, if it's a fight you wa-want then prepare to...get beat d-d-down! No mer...mercy!!

- There is a unique dagger called Yahya's Nail Clipper.
- In the quest Shattered Minds, the player fights his "Final Form" in a mushroom-based hallucination. Despite being level 9001, it does very little/no damage.
- Yahya has mobs named after him, one on the Black Road, called Yahya Apprentice, and the other being located in a treehouse close to the Iboju Village, called Yahya's Apprentice.
- Ironically, they do a lot more damage than its master's final form.
- The Talking Mushroom seems to have a grudge against Yahya, as he tried to eat him. He also makes references to him, especially when you are fighting YahyaBot v4.04, and when you are around Caissop as well. It could even be possible that the Talking Mushroom knew Yahya from a prior experience, being the first stage of the Talking Mushroom easter egg.
