A shimmering sea green sashay among the laborers of the waterfront, Sesorcha carries herself as a queen among lesser races. Her heavy, pampered curves are spared the exertion of developing upper body muscle; she swims only with her tail. Diaphanous shawls tangle her arms to helplessness, and a combination of these and pirate booty cover her nudity. As a serpent, her natural scent is unsettling to mammals, sharp, hackle-raising and deadly, and she always brings a bit of the beach with her. Her voice is a low, crooning resonance that vibrates the water of mortal bodies as steadily as it carries through the waters of the Sea of Sorrows.Personality:
Imperious, Scheming, Temperamental, Inquisitive.
An unwelcome visitor in a strange port, Sesorcha shields herself with the willful purpose and sense of entitlement of a foreign dignitary, though she is anything but. Having established herself in a nominal position of power, she jealously guards her future and her inscrutable agenda with a keen mind trained to calculate the movements of the stars for eons to come. Though physically larger (or at least longer) than many denizens of Lion's Arch, she detests physical confrontation and engages in little physical work herself, relying instead on a workforce of unskilled, transient workers. In conversation she speaks more than she listens, and once she speaks on something from the heart, she builds to a landslide momentum which is difficult to turn back.Alliances:
Captain's Council, InquestLikes and Dislikes:
Sesorcha has a keen interest in the ruins of the Breachmaker for her own purposes, and mathematics and astronomy hold her intellectual interest. The sights and sounds and flavors of Lion's Arch delight her, but at the same time she abhors its coarseness and chaos. A hot tea is necessary, at the end of the day, to sort it all out.One Unique Thing:
As a hatchling, Sesorcha was forbidden from ever touching the obelisks of her people.Background:
Into a time of sadness and doubt for the krait, Sesorcha was hatched. In fleeing the holy cities of the deep to escape the elder sea dragon, the benevolence of their prophets fled their bones and their rich oral history was fragmented. Few females were born with her clutch; those who survived to adulthood became powerful leaders of a new generation of shallow-waters clans. Sesorcha, instead, was denied the holy power of the obelisks, and began to forge alliances with the surface people. Her first success was with the Inquest.
Though there was never a strong trust between them, Sesorcha's clan aided the Inquest in their coastal exploration and capture of dragon minions for study. The analytical mind of a krait served her well ingratiating herself to the Inquest, but among them she first tasted bureaucratic power, and her appetite for it was not easily sated. Had she been named an honorary krewe member, Sesorcha might have remained forever. Instead, her thirst for power landed her in Lion's Arch.
Her arrival came at a time of deep distrust for the krait, and many of her clan turned back to safer waters. Sesorcha and only a few krait remained to strike a bargain with the leaders of Lion's Arch: not only would they help to clear the wreckage from the waters of the harbor, they would pay for the privilege. What began as a simple deal to acquire timber for her clan's aquatic homes took an unexpected turn when her old allies in the Inquest contacted her again. There is something of interest, the asura seem convinced, lying on the sea bed among the wreckage of the Breachmaker. Ever since, Sesorcha's obsession has been beneath the dark water of the harbor, and her excavation only a front. The stakes are high, but her just desserts may be higher still.
