Deep into the desert there is an oasis, trees grow hundreds of feet from the ground and their leaves blot out the harsh sun. A large mountain can be seen looming even higher than the canopy, an eerie glow emanating from it’s center.

Their leader, a beloved woman who has no fear. She knows of compassion but only deals it to those who are deserving. She is obsessed with ornate details. Tattoos cover almost every inch of her body as well as the bodies of her closest guards and friends.
As she is seeking a mate, Her suitors will often bring her gifts that are intricately hand carved. There has not been a single suitor that she believes is worthy of her though. She doubts she will ever find one but that doesn’t phase her in the least. There are plenty of things to occupy her time.
