Companion: Exile Leader

Nahimana - Exile Leader
Female
Warlock
Neutral Evil

The Exile Leader is an intensely charismatic person who leads a tribe of nomadic exiles from other communities. In a world where magical ability is rare, the Exile Leader is held in awe by the exiles and fear by their enemies. Although nearly all tribes are polytheistic, the exiles worship only one god, for this deity is jealous and would have no other god before it. As the high priest of this god, the Exile Leader's word is law. Those who would voice dissent are quickly smitten with the power that flows in the Exile Leader.

As a child, the Exile Leader was so beautiful that she was revered as an offspring of a god. The Exile Leader's mother was said to have been a sacred vessel in which the god's seed was planted. The Exile Leader was given a gem-studded throne on which to sit while being paraded down the streets by the priests of the community. Throngs of worshipers would writhe and beg with tear-streaked faces for a blessing from this beautiful child-god.

But then disaster struck. A hostile tribe attacked the community and laid waste to it. Those who survived the attack and surrendered were taken as slaves. The Exile Leader was sold to a wealthy and decadent man who set her to menial labor during the day and sated his lust on her each night. The humiliation that was wrought upon this once-revered child hardened her heart. Lying in a filthy straw bed over a hard floor each evening, the Exile Leader prayed for power and vengeance in exchange for her soul.

Late into the Exile Leader's adolescence, her prayers were answered. Eldritch power surged in her hands, and she found that the force of her personality could be magnified at will. The Exile Leader so frightened her master that the latter cast her out of the tribe.

Alone in the wastelands, the Exile Leader wandered for forty days and forty nights. In her delirium, the Exile Leader communed with an infernal being whom she now worships as a god. The Exile Leader pledged to found a nation that would subjugate all other tribes and glorify the infernal god's name.

At the end of her meditations, the Exile Leader's mission was clear. she was to gather all outcasts from other communities and lead them to glory in the name of her god.

Note: In the game, when the Exile Leader enters the Mirrorlight Academy for the first time (and shortly after the PC activates the academy's central hub), the Entity will be able to tap into the thoughts of the Exile Leader and use the hologramic communications network to manifest a false vision of the Exile Leader's god. The false vision will instruct the Exile Leader on what to do, which will eventually help free the Entity from the mirror dimension.
