Although her father had always wanted a son, and trained her to insure that she would make certain that his business was one day run properly, he was realistic enough to understand that a crew would not easily work for a woman, no matter how competent she might be. On Sath’s 14th birthday, her father announced to her that he had betrothed her to a young man who, while he had no idea of how to run a ship, was a fast learner with a head for business. The young man was also sweet and kind, and loved Sath. Her father thought he had done the very best he could for her- making sure that she would be involved day to day in the life that she loved and have a good man for a husband in the deal.
Sath however, felt betrayed- why must she marry some man to keep what was already rightfully hers? Why would the men that already admired her skills as a sailor not follow her as a boss? Why must society be so cruel? Sath gathered what she needed that evening and fled to up the coast to live on her own alongside the ocean, eventually meeting an old man who saw in her another with a soul of the ocean, and he taught her the ways of the aquatic druid over the next 4 years.
In the meanwhile however, her father had grown ill and he was depending more and more upon his intended son-in-law to help with the business. The young man had grown bitter however- feeling spurned by the woman he loved, he was not able to see that she had not meant to hurt him, and he sought to make her pay for his broken heart. When her father died, he took over the business and enlisted the law to help him bring her back, as her father had signed a formal contract with him that he should marry Sath. Finding out she was being hunted by the law and by other less savory types employed by her betrothed, Sath decided her course- she would flee her homeland. Cutting her hair and dressing in the manner of a man, her years of hard labor on the ship and with her mentor allowed her to pass as male, and she booked working passage on a ship out of port, heading for the dangerous area known as the Razor’s Coast, where she felt confident none would look to find her or seek to chase her.
Appearance: Sath dresses and acts (for the most part) as a man- though she does not go to absurd lengths to hide her gender, few realize that she is a woman. She does this not because she seeks to be male but because she understands now that many will not accept her and her skills as qualifying her for the life she seeks the way they would a man. So a man she appears to be.
