Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Yasha is a tall woman with very, very pale skin. Her hair is black and starts to turn white as it gets longer. Her hair is matted, dreaded, and braided. Her clothes are a bit tattered and she is a bit of a mess. She has two different-colored eyes: one of them is a sort of light greenish-blue and the other is violet. She wears a small symbol of The Stormlord on her waist.

Personality Edit

Yasha is very standoffish. To the outside world, she seems cold-hearted and lacking empathy. She is also shown to for an unknown reason not to like traveling in groups having a preference to be alone. She also does show kindness from time to time. She's also shown recently to be socially akward around others.

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Pre-Stream Edit

Chapter 9 Edit

Yasha tried to make a run for it after the incident at the Traveling Tent of Curiosities. However, she didn't make it far, and she was arrested by the Crownsguard.

She reunited with the rest of the party at their trial before the town's Lawmaster. After being acquitted of their charges, Yasha decided to remain in Trostenwald. She needed to converse with someone for unknown reasons. All she would reveal is that, while she was aware that she wasn't beholden to Gustav anymore, Gustav wasn't the only person she owed debts to. She promised to meet the rest of the party in Zadash at some point.

Relationships Edit

Mollymauk Tealeaf Edit

Molly and Yasha seem to be well acquainted from working with the Carnival of Curiosities. Molly appears to have met Yasha when she joined the Carnival a few months ago.

Beauregard Edit

Yasha and Beau seem to be hitting it off very well. When Yasha asked Beauregard to hand Yasha all of her weapons she asked if she could keep her walking stick. Yasha declined but instead carried Beau to her seat. When they got there, Beau asked Yasha to hold her through the show. Yasha asked for several gold to do this but seemed to take the request as a compliment.
