Saja Jyn


“It is said that the shadows hold many dangers, and that is true. I am one of those dangers.” - Saja Jyn


Saja is a tall, slender woman.  She is extremely fair: very pale skin and long white hair.  In fact, she would be considered an albino except for her eyes, which are a very dark gray.  She always wears a black uniform with the crest of the royal house of Jernos on it. 


Saja is a ShadowKin walker, born into the service of the lords of Jernos.  She showed much promise during her training, and was assigned to the royal family itself.  Originally, she was trained to be the Court Assassin, but upon the birth of Princess Althista, second heir to the throne, Saja was reassigned to the position of the princess’s bodyguard and later companion.  While she takes her duty seriously, the court politics often irritate her, and she doesn’t respect many of the nobles.  She isn’t as disrespectful as her partner Moraten Li is, but she often comes dangerously close.  She is devoted to her charge, and considered completely trustworthy by the immediate royal family.  She is periodically asked to perform missions (spying and the occasional assassination) in addition to her normal duties.  However, she was assigned to the princess, and Saja understands that to mean that the princess’s orders take precedence.  This has led to a few conflicts with other royals, and at least two accusations of subordination.  So far, she’s gotten away with it.

Special Equipment

Saja has two folding fans with sharpened steel ribs that she fights with when violence is unavoidable.  She is very good with them.  The appearance of the fans is such that she can often take them places where weapons are prohibited without being challenged.

Roleplaying Notes

Saja speaks in a very formal fashion with anyone she is not very comfortable with, which is pretty much everyone but her partner and Princess Althista.  She will always be somewhere around both people; if she is not, she becomes very nervous.  She is very devoted to Althista, almost scarily so.  She would think nothing of laying her life down for the princess’s, although she will try to arrange things so that it isn’t necessary.  The only other person she feels worthy of that level of devotion is her partner, Moraten Li, and she feels he can often take care of himself.  She dislikes violence, but will not hesitate to use it in the defence of her charge or her partner, or if ordered to in the course of a mission.  For someone who is a trained assassin, she is rather averse to killing.

Collect them all, they are a set. Ria's characters are always interesting. I don't find these write ups as engaging as others she has done. This is not a mechanical thing, just a matter of taste. You should write up the princess as well.

I have to be honest. She's a bit of a cliche. But the three posts combined are well done!

A decent ninja - I agree with Moon on this one.

When running a new party, get around the question of plot density by having the first discovery to be a deck of fate, or whatever you call it. If you use a real deck, you should definitely stack it to have the desired outcome, which is to curse the party to attract weird things to happen and involve them. This should not be told to the players at the time, so that they won't just up and try to get themselves 'decursed'. Though quite why they would want to is beyond me.
