Senja

Before the Gloom swallowed the warrior, Senja was the greatest gladiator in the history of the Imperial Arena. She is the last of the Iron Sisters, a league of warriors from the distant Dominion of the Seven Winds, and she smites her enemies with both storm and steel.

Backstory

Senja is a legend across the Avar Imperium, the greatest champion ever to grace the arena. Where many gladiators face death with grim resolve, Senja delights in every battle. Even now, Senja still hears the crowds when she fights, still imagines the cheering throngs urging her on. In truth, she loves battle because it is a distraction from her pain. Senja comes from the Dominion of the Seven Winds, a place where arcane magic is woven into everyday life, where arcanists and warmasters alike wield power over the elements; while she is far from home, the storm still answers her call. She is the last of the Iron Sisters, a proud order of deadly warriors. She doesn’t talk about what happened to her sisters, but there is no question that their loss is a knife in her heart—that whatever happened in the Dominion drove Senja to the other side of the world and into the endless distraction of the arena. Now that the Gloom has swallowed the arena, Senja needs a new battle to distract her from her pain, and the Gloom is the greatest enemy of all.

Senja is a fearless warrior and an indomitable foe. But as an echo returned from the Gloom, there’s much she can’t remember. She remembers fighting alongside the Iron Sisters, but she cannot remember exactly how they fell. She remembers countless battles in the arena, but she knows she can’t remember every enemy she faced. Could forgotten enemies come back to haunt her?
