TRAITS & FEATS
Birthmark: Serves as Divine Focus, +2 trait bonus to saves vs Charms & Compulsion (special effect: this appears as a stigmata where blood leaks from Lazha's wrists when she casts spells rather than as a physical birthmark)
Slicksheens have been pirates for over ten generations, since Capt Gorak earned the name from the shimmer of blood trailing behind his storied ship, The Maw . Lazha's mother, Bonkru Slicksheen was the last captain of The Maw, and she fit the usual mold of ruthless orcish piracy, until her fate changed twenty years ago.
After a routine boarding, Bonkru spared the life of a delicate young Taldan nobleman. She'd intended to ransom him back to his family, but by the time The Maw made port, they had quite improbably fallen in love. This was Lazha's father, Selvi. Bonkru was charmed by his winsome ways, while he became enamored of her curvaceous tusks.
They were an odd couple, but somehow it worked, Bonkru scourging the seas while Selvi raised Lazsha at their seaside home in Port Peril. But shortly after Lazha's fourteenth birthday, Selvi's family learned he yet lived, and sent adventurers to rescue him. But when the adventurers discovered his situation, they mocked him instead. That night, overcome by shame, Selvi leapt from the widow's walk of their home into the sea, while Lazha watched from her bedroom window.
Bonkru flew into a rage and pursued the adventurers, but in her recklessness sent The Maw into a storm it could not weather, where it sunk without survivors.
Lazha adored her father, and began her worship of Naderi as a way to honor his final choice. But as her faith has deepened, she has grown to see her role as more than that -- it is about advising all those who walk difficult paths, whatever strange choices they shall make. "You shall not die alone" is the promise she makes to those she watches over.
