Priyala Ka'shatriya Val'Beldrobbaen
Appeared in chapters 48
The Dev'ess of the Ka'shatriya house.
Appearance & Personality
Priyala is a thin drowolath of average height, with black hair and blue eyes. She wears a long black hooded robe with a white lining. She is a rather formal individual, with a strong belief in duty and tradition.
She is first seen speaking with Waes'soloth in the aftermath of the Puppeteer Incident. While While the two speak, Nin'diil makes a crazed attempt on the life of the ancient matriarch and is quickly cut down through shadow sorcery. Priyala expresses shock incident, noting that Beldrobbaen do not kill their fellow Beldrobbaen.
Later, she is one of only two Dev'esses to attend Waes'soloth's summons to a meeting. As reports come in of erratic behavior from the other houses, Waes sends couriers to demand explanations, but is interrupted by a report from Verthandi regarding the flower poison and Snadhya'rune's offer of a cure. Priyala angrily notes the offer to be nothing less than pure blackmail.
With the nature of the threat now clear, Thalestris takes her leave to initiate a purge of the infected houses. Though Priyala argues for an attempt to find another solution, at least one tower is collapsed before Waes'soloth opens the fortress to aid from Jaal'darya, who claim to have experimental treatments to the infection.
"Will this madness not cease? For potatoes to hold higher value than the sanctity of our clan in such dire times...!" -Upon hearing San'dellora's report of the other Dev'esses.
