The Heroes of Heaven's Height
Empress of the Bird-Maidens
Standing six feet tall, with a wingspan of fifteen feet and bright purple and red plumage, bursting with flame (especially when she’s angry), Lilisassa is an imposing figure. She has a strange accent when conversing in flame-tongue, and she quickly become irritated with people who seem to be wasting her time.
The bird-maidens occupy a series of islands in the southeastern section of the Tsu-Dian-Pei, and have been for the past few decades, victims of frequent slaver raids – from the Guild, as well as the Pontusian Alliance and Phorsycian League. Lilisassa has since taken a very negative view of humanity, and they now kill most humans they encounter.
She is defying Yu-Tian’s orders in attending the Bicentennial, using the chance to petition any well-placed and sympathetic ear she can find.
