To Serve and Protect?
Priestess of Menoth , escaped slave
Betrayed by her congregation and sold to Thenol slavers Zia was later sold to a dwarf savant who was setting up an operation at Eagle’s Eye Peak to supply Massog blades . Zia was able to resist the enchantments of the savant but played along with the ruse that she was under his control . Used as a waterbearer and punching bag Zia did her best to help the other slaves survive and occasionally escape , often with the aid of the man known only as Bear . Eventually with the inexplicable help of the bugbears who had once mistreated her so badly Zia was able to stage a revolt and the savant cut his losses , fleeing with most of the Massog blades after the deaths of a few of his men . Zia’s immediate plans are getting the slaves to safety . After that she doesn’t know what she will do . Her faith has been shaken by this terrible ordeal and it remains to be seen if she will fall from grace or be forged with stronger conviction for this trial .
