Isat Vastra comes from an established Zoroastrian family. Formerly from Ctestiphon, they fled when the city was sacked by Carus, re-settling in Antioch. Here Isat found his vocation as a doctor. To him the duality of his faith is epitomised by the balancing necessities of his profession.

Unknown to many, Isat seems to have access to some kind of arcane power. He doesn't understand it himself, but he needs to know more. He took part in the Eleusian mysteries and was overwhelmed, sweating the milk of Persephone (which was made into an astonishing healing ointment).

So far he has used his abilities only for the benefit of others and mostly by accident but he fears discovery. No longer feeling safe among his own family and fearing that he might accidentally harm them, he has wandered, finally coming to Constantinople where he met Modius and Hrothgar. Wanderers like himself, he feels comparatively safe in their odd non-judgemental company. They don't know he's anything other than a very good medic.


Isat is finer boned than most Romans, and shows his Persian heritage clearly in his bearing. He is dark haired, blue eyed, pale skinned. He has charming manners and expensive tastes, can appear arrogant and he has a caustic tongue. Oh - and he's not very good at outdoor skills. He gets clumsy and confused, followed shortly afterwards by short-tempered.
