Appearance & Personality
Naj'wa is a lightly built drow with khaki hair and tainted eyes. Despite her profession, she attends the gathering in relatively conservative dress. She projects a passive and approachable demeanor, with mild tones and an emphasis on courtesy.
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. Waes'soloth and Maszyna both promptly interject that the gathering itself presents a great risk, in particular to the smaller clans and commoners. 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. Naj'wa herself agrees with the widely-held sentiment, and asks the Vel'Vloz'ress delegation of their stance on the matter. Shortly thereafter, she lodges a formal request on behalf of the Guild of Flowers for greater protection for the common people; either through a clans-wide cease-fire or through the deployment of mixed-clan patrols throughout the districts.
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.
"It is a relief to hear the Great Clans speak of protection, not war, amongst themselves." -At the Moon's End gathering.
