Biography - Arc II
During The District War
He was first seen near the Dutan'vir fortress as the Kyorl'solenurn prepare to lay siege, and was tasked with spying clandestinely on the Kyorl'solenurn movements. To his and Rayata's surprise, Merril'lin barged through the building they were hiding out at, making a beeline straight for Sakrag and revealing his hiding spot. After she provided a warning of the Kyorl'solenurn's attempted provocation, Sakrag and Rayata immediately returned with the information to report on the matter to Quain'tana's attendants.
He was next seen with Rayata, fraternizing while assigned to guard Laele'aell. His reassurances to Rayata that nothing happens on the assignment was quickly disproven when Laele'aell smashes her music box and escaped.
Sarghress Civil War
Rayata was next seen with Sakrag back at the Sarghress Fortress, fraternizing while the latter is on-duty guarding Laele'aell. His reassurances that nothing ever happened on that assignment was quickly proven wrong when Laele'aell smashed her music box and escaped.
Biography - Arc III
Hermionne Invasion of Machike'Shikumo
Rayata was among the Sarghress defenders holding off the Hermionne siege on Machike'Shikumo. She showed great enthusiasm for the battle, especially once the infantry was finally given the signal to begin counter-attacking the invaders.
Escape To Shashi
Later, after the defenders were forced to abandon the colony due to the assault by Snadhya'rune's airship and Nidraa'chal crew, Rayata and Sakrag took up scouting duties once again. Instead of spotting the airship, they stumbled upon the location of Sha'shi, a research outpost located in the deepest parts of the underworld.
Shortly after the Sarghress took shelter in Sha'shi, the airship arrived, still hunting for the rogue defenders. Kel'noz Val'Sarghress and Zy'ezra the Vanir leader of Sha'shi, quickly hashed out a temporary alliance - the engineers would help the Sarghress in exchange exclusive rights to examine the inner workings of the airship, should they be successful in capturing it.
Capturing the Nidraa'chal Airship
A plan was put in place to capture the Nidraa'chal airship, with a boarding party slipping aboard with the help of Sha'shi's experimental golem armors. Rayata and Sakrag missed the chance to board the ship initially, as the crew was tipped off to the Sarghress presence by Da'xia. Luckily for the defenders, an attempt to bombard the remaining Sarghress on the ground was thwarted by a miscalculation by the ship's captain, Sasi'rael - its blast was redirected by the vortex surrounding Sha'shi, and struck the ship. The resulting damage quickly crippled the ship, allowing a second attempt to board the ship by the remaining defenders.
Rayata and Sakrag accompanied Kel'noz aboard the ship, where they attempted to make their way below decks. While Kel'noz used his mana arts to secure the remaining airship crew, Rayata and Sakrag charged the engine room in order to capture the ship's core and chief engineer. As they held Cy'ril at swordpoint, they demanded that he turn over control of the ship. Instead of doing so, however, Cy'ril calmly told them that the ship was going to crash.
In the aftermath of the airship battle, the airship was turned over to the Sha'shi engineers for repairs, giving them the opportunity to study the airship. Once the repairs were completed, the defenders flew the ship back to Machike'shikumo, where Sakrag attempted to help Rayata hang a pirate flag next to the Sarghress colors. As they did so, Bae'rali Val'Sullisin'rune emerged from below the main deck with a warning that a legion of Sarghress troops would be arriving soon to pacify the colony.
"The Sarghress are a... welcoming bunch, if you know how to make war."
