Hearts of Iron: The Serpent's Skull
Boisterous and optimistic red-haired Ilizmagorti woman.
Sasha has tousled red hair and mischievous green eyes, and is missing the pinky finger of her left hand. She bears a tattoo between her shoulder blades— the symbol of the Red Mantis, a “gift” from her mother before Sasha’s personality made it apparent she could never belong. Slender and athletic, Sasha never stands still or stays quiet for long.
Sasha’s optimism and easy laugh border on the manic. Certainly she never stays angry or sad for long, no matter what the circumstances—a trait that tends to unnerve and frighten anyone who gets too close.
Sasha finds much of the local wildlife adorable—particularly the dimorphodons you have seen circling the island overhead. She would dearly love to have a baby dimorphodon as a pet, and promises to keep it under control if you can find one for her.
After achieving her trust and gratitude by securing for her a baby dimorphodon—which she has named Morphy—Sasha reveals that her mother is an infamous Red Mantis Assassin, and that she’s learned some combat secrets from her that she can share with the PCs. Anyone who spends a day practicing her techniques gains a permanent +1 bonus on Initiative checks.
