This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!
A Highland Raider with a pirate obsession.
Appearance & Personality

Biography - Arc II
During The District War
She was first seen relaxing off-duty near the Dutan'vir fortress, as the Kyorl'solenurn prepare to lay siege to the Dutan'vir occupiers. She appeared to be helping Sakrag spy clandestinely, until Merril'lin barged through to pass on a warning of the Kyorl'solenurn's attempted provocation, making a beeline straight for Sakrag. She and Sakrag immediately returned to the Sargress post outside of the Vloz district to report on the matter.
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.<ref>Chapter 52, page 3</ref> 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.<ref>Chapter 52, page 91</ref>
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.<ref>Chapter 52, page 105</ref>
"We did it. We actually did good spy work!?" - Upon being notified their report was given directly to Quain'tana herself.
