==Appearance and Personality==
+
She is a proud and aggressive individual, placing high value in personal strength and courage. Likewise, she holds tactics and abilities that rely on trickery or caution in contempt, viewing them as a cowardly attempts to avoid direct combat with one's foes. She holds herself to these same standards, and remains stubbornly defiant even in captivity and while suffering severe wounds. While she appears to regard heavy armor with some disdain, she is at least willing to don armor protecting her vitals, perhaps a result of her prior defeat and imprisonment at the hands of those with no such compunctions.
K'sava is an incredibly large drow both in height and girth. She fights aggressively with her battle axe, and is disdainful of cheap tactics like hiding behind sorcery or wearing armor. She has brown eyes and black and white streaked dreadlocks pulled back into a messy bun.

During the Darya Lake assault, K'sava was positioned to defend a tower the Val'Sarghress troops were trying to take. She encountered the Brawlers squad when their leader, [[Jak'iaah Sarghress|Jak'iaah]], used earth sorcery to open up a wall behind her hiding spot.

Biography - Arc II

A captive K'sava spitefully spits in the face of Zair.[1]

K'sava first appeared during the District War, as the Sarghress began an assault of Darya Lake district. Positioned to defend a tower within the district, she was encountered by a Sarghress Brawlers squad led by Jak'iaah. Having used earth sorcery to open a hole in the wall an attempt to find an alternative entrance, Jak'iaah and her squad found themselves face to face with the imposing figure. Though K'sava immediately leapt to attack her foes, Jak'iaah narrowly managed to seal the hole before the massive axe-blow could connect.[2]

While hesitant to assault the fort without reinforcements, Jak'iaah and her team used their earth foci to shape with spikes and then launching the mass inward, forcing K'sava to dodge the improvised shrapnel. While the Brawlers squad had hoped to force the defenders away from the breach, K'sava immediately stepped forward and swung her axe into the first to enter, cleaving through his armor and deep into his shoulder. While she fought ferociously, even managing to snap Sen'gil's sword with a glancing blow, she was ultimately surrounded and brought down by multiple wounds, with Zair mocking her for her rejection of the heavy armor that might have saved her.

In her weakened state, K'sava was bound by the remaining Brawlers and guarded at knife-point by one of the slaves the Black Sun were using in their various traps. Though too injured to free herself, she remained defiant, spitting into the face of her captors and refusing to yield information. She was freed when the Sharen collapsed the tower in attempt to dislodge the Sarghress, though she was injured even further, passing out naked in a nearby alley. She was found by starving commoners, who began to drag her away, but managed to regain consciousness, much to the misfortune of her would-be cannibals.[3]

Ariel would later assume K'sava's form with her shape-shifting powers, using it to infiltrate the Sharen fortress and fooling one of K'sava's fellow tribeswoman.[4]
