Siashodra is a Jaal'darya engineer serving in the Sarghress-Sharen Alliance.

Appearance & Personality

Siashodra is a lithe female drowolath with reptilian green eyes. In addition to the Jaal'darya modification of her eyes, she has a number of draconic features, including clawed feet and a long scaled tail. She wears her brown hair long and styled into a pair of braided ponytails, and dresses in a simple brown backless overalls. Her modifications have left her extremely limber, capable of contorting herself in ways that would be extraordinarily painful to an unmodified drow.

Her temperament is generally stable, if pessimistic. However, she is also strongly affected by the temperature around her, tending to become drowsy in low temperatures and more aggressive in high temperatures. This is less a result of modified biological traits as it is a psychosomatic quirk. She has a small green dragon companion named Aighionu, of whom she is quite fond.

Biography - Arc III

Siashodra and Felis'nuul restrain Chrys'tel.[1]

Second Battle of Felde

Siashodra first appeared as Ariel's wolfpack faction stormed Snadhya'rune's tower in Felde. As a group of Alliance personnel fell back to the lower levels of the tower, she rose through a lift with a pair of Jaal'darya biogolems, intent on driving back the attacking Sarghress forces.[2] Though she noticed Melas'ryon pulling his daughter to safety from among their enemies, she made no comment on the matter and did not pursue it.[3] Nearly crushed by a golem, and with most of her allies having already fled to the elevator, she made a last ditch effort to bomb the attackers with a caustic form of blood sorcery.[4]

Ultimately, should would survive the battle as the remaining Wolfpack forces surrendered to Sarhgress custody.

Coalition Assault

Mere days later, Siashodra once more found herself embroiled in a siege by Sarghress forces. With her Empire crumbling around her, Snadhya'rune had begun to suffer a mental breakdown. While some brought up the possibility of forcing their ruler's aura into a new host body, Siashodra expressed great reluctance, as she pointed out there was no way of telling how that would effect the many living summons bound to the elder Sharen.

Despite her reservations, Siashodra began preparations for the transfer alongside her compatriot, Felis'nuul. Their work was abruptly interrupted by the arrival of Chrys'tel, who stumbled into their lab while fleeing pursuit.[5] Moving quickly to apprehend an enemy combatant - and frustrated by Chrys'tel's desperate damaging of her equipment - Siashodra and Felis'nuul leapt to attack, forcing Chrys'tel to the ground and restraining her. As Jaharka arrived, cruelly stabbing Chrys'tel in the arm, she remarked on the convenience of Chrys'tel's presence in the lab, implying sinister plans for the wayward Captain. Unfortunately for the trio, any further schemes were interrupted by the arrival of Al'tesh, whose sudden appearance forced them to divert their attention from their captive.[6]
