The Illhar of the Kal'yantra clan.
Appearance & Personality
Maszyna is a drowolath of average build and stern countenance. She dresses plainly in brown robes and wears her hair in a loose ponytail, along with a leather headband. She is a fairly grim and composed individual, and is keenly aware of the fragile nature of Chel. As such, she is a strong advocate of peace and order.
Moon's End Gathering of the Clans
She first appears at the gathering of the clans called by Zala'ess, in which the Vel'Vloz'ress first appear as a Great Clan at such a gathering. Interjecting despite her clan's lower stature, she agrees with Waes'soloth that the gathering itself presents a great risk, in particular to the smaller clans and commoners of the streets, an act which the Val'Kyorl'solenurn delegation commends her for. This leads the entire gathering to debate the increased civil unrest and loss of commoner protection from clan conflicts that resulted from the Nidraa'chal war. In this debate, Maszyna further emphasizes the dependence of the Great Clans upon the commoners and slaves that make up the bulk of the population and workforce of Chel.
Unfortunately, conflicts arise at the table, especially regarding the absence of Diva'ratrika and the recognition of the Vloz'ress as one of the Great Clans. From their lower seats, Maszyna notes the situation to be worsening among the Great Clans, to which Naj'wa merely confides that the lesser clans have little option but to stand aside and hope the conflict resolves with as few casualties as possible.
"Great clans and small need to realize this: Without the bottom of society, we are all in danger. The killing of neutral parties must stop!" -Speaking out at the gathering of the clans.
