Sezara is a language spoken in central Lheinead, by the descendents of the Kang-Eur (aka Kang-Ur) civilization. It shows heavy influence from Quechua and Swahili, despite the fact that its population is generally descendended from Spanish and Cantonese speakers. It is believed that Swahili-speakers from the northeast and possibly also Quechua-speakers from the northwest invaded and to varying degrees installed their language(s) as the official language of the later Kang-Eur people.

More recently, Korce speakers have influenced it, after their dispersal throughout central Lheinead.
