Masahir, and her adoptive mother Ra'tima-dro, are just one of many creatures pulled to the Crossroads from another world. Masa started her life in the dusty city of Nippur, reigned over by the Neo Babylonian state. She doesn't remember having a real childhood, her earliest memories coming into focus when she was around twelve years of age. She lived on the streets as an urchin, stealing food and generally being a dirty little trash child. One day she picked the pocket of the wrong person and found herself at the unpleasantly sharp end of a dagger. That dagger belonged to Ra'tima-dro.
The khajiiti woman felt pity for the orphan and adopted little Masa, impressed by the kid's sharp wit and natural talent. Under the guide of her new mother she cleaned herself up and in doing so allowed her other abilities to shine. Within a few short years, coupled with Ra's resources, she finally earned herself small-time fame singing and dancing to lighten the spirits of those around her.
Her life was wonderful, that is, until The War ravaged her nation.
Everything was torn up, flipped upside down and destroyed. The God of Heroes was banished to an inescapable hellish realm, and the government beneath the King collapsed. The once immense and prosperous city lay crumbling in the sand dunes, reduced to nothing more than a burnt out corpse of it's former glory.
It was during this time of famine and need that her soulful voice got the most attention. It started out as nothing more than a hum, a spark of hope, as the survivors sifted through the rubble. As the Nippurians blinked the dust and soot away that spark of hope grew, and so did her voice. In the long dreary nights spent under recovery effort floodlights she sang prayers and dirges for the victims. With her mom providing food, water and medicine they soon stood to be well respected members of the post-war community.
It was an easy transition when, for the first time in what felt like an eternity, the government started to pick itself back up with the return of Lord Wolfe and his associates. Her fame had opened doors and her hope had kept her close in people's hearts. Finally she was recognized, dancing in the palace at the foot of the miraculously returned God-King, her flashy outfits catching the eye of anyone who glimpsed her grace.
Unfortunately that attention inspired a jealous rage in a recently snubbed ex-lover. Unhappy with the fact that Masahir was moving on with her life, he snuck into her dressing room and overpowered her, violently raping and nearly killing her in the act.
After a couple weeks spent recovering she was set to release, but as her and Ra walked out the front doors they found themselves not in the arid desert, but on a tropical city island.
Communication (smart device) (100)
A flashy gold and red holographic smart device that allows Masahir to text, make calls, send emails and check online websites. It can be found either in her hand or in her purse, as she never goes very far without it.
