Background / dates / events in life
Sha'ala's life was not exactly long and happy. She saw her mother burnt at the stake for witchcraft and with an unknown and absent father was left to care for her two younger brothers, F'lair and Ged. The orphans were tolerated by their fellow villagers, but not well looked upon, especially after the incident with their mother and the ill rumours that surrounded their father. One day out in the forest, the three were attacked by vampires, Sha'ala and F'lair were helpless to stop their youngest brother from being carried away by the monsters - as she tried to stop them she was struck down by a blow from behind. The last thing she saw was F'alir running, terrified.
She was left for dead, almost drained of blood and suffering a brain haemorrhage from that initial blow. As she lay dying, a presence came to her: an ancient demon whose body had long since expired, a rare entity of incredible magical energy yet it was only a half-being, incomplete, Pscion. It saw the anger and hatred blossoming within her even as the life faded from her body, her fury at all those years of caring for her siblings, only to be abandoned by them. She felt in running away F'lair, ever the strongest of the three even though he was much younger, had let she and Ged die. The demon saw the darkness inside, and offered to complete Sha'ala's broken body with its own energies. The catch was that they would meld, the two disparate halves losing their identities to make a new whole. Sha'ala, ever possessed by a powerful will to survive and succeed, accepted. Although the person that she was died that moment, the thing that lived on, Lady Pscion, still retained her memories and fragments of personality.
Drawn by the shadows rising in the south, she journeyed into the continent's abandoned southern reaches, crossing the Dragon Mountains, passing into the Ruined Land and to the demon-city of Khisan north of the Dreaming Gate. There she sealed her desitiny by joining the demon council of the Lords of Darkness, her nigh-unrivalled magical prowess and presience earning herself a place there.
Now she sits on the council, seeking the seven crystals, the Tears of Anshu, that they might open the Astral Gate atop Firetop Mountain, allowing them to ascend to godhood.

|Most Important Thing to Know about Character
|She is Shade's sister. She is now aware that he lives, but he does not know she is alive. It is her personal mission to make him suffer because she still blames him for what happened to them. And if she can do that by taking it out on his friends and those he cares about, all the better! Also, she actually does not much like demons but feels closer to them than to humans.
|Doesn’t have any as far as we are aware.
|How character reacts to peers’ view of them
|Secretly likes the attention she gets.
|How character sees others (besides friends)
|Unreliable. She also doesn't like Aster much and the feeling's mutual.
|How far will character go to get what he/she wants:
|Well, she already gave up her humanity to live. That should give you an idea...
|Currently using her powers to find the Tears of Anshu . Also helping spread dissent among the Daemonslayers (see 'Unforgiven')

|Going well so far...
