"It is my charge to give guidance to those who visit our Milvaneth Sacrarium in search of it."
A priestess of the Order of Nald'thal. During a visit to the Marasaja Pit to hear the confession of a prisoner, Lalai was distracted by the presence of powerful magicks. Seeking to identify the source of this arcane disturbance, she ventured into the deepest reaches of the prison. There, she encountered Ququruka Tataruka, a legendary mage who had spent the past century meditating in unbroken confinement. His vast knowledge of divine myth and ancient thaumaturgy ignited in her a burning curiosity—a ravenous flame that demanded to be fed. Thus it was that her frequent duties within the Pit masked her gradual initiation into the art of black magic at the foot of her imprisoned master.
Wizard's Attire: A raiment of the black mage. Resplendent after two thousand years, this garb from the Fifth Astral Era is shot through with hex-spun mythril. Such innovations give away this seemingly innocent piece of clothing as the invest for summoning creatures from the void—that otherworldly plane which makes sport of the sanity of man.
Stardust Rod: A sorcerous staff crafted in the Fifth Astral Era by Shatotto, thaumaturge of black repute. Fashioned from the remnants of a star ripped from its course by destructive magic, her Stardust Rods enjoy the highest regard from the worst sort of people. Death's Handmaiden was one of Shatotto's epithets, and despite the ravages of age, her relics live up to their dark reputation.
