It never had to be this way.

The fire, the massacre, the declaration of war.

None of these things had to happen, but they did, and Zadi can see, hear, feel these horrors with every bone in her body, every day. The way her parents screamed at her to run, far, far away, as fast as possible. The shrill cries of townsfolk from the broken windows of burning homes. The sweaty, shaking hand of a friend as they fled the carnage, narrowly avoiding death themselves as they weaved in and out of sticker bushes.

It's been 20 years since a deadly sickness spread across the world, and 20 years since her people, the Osferi, were unjustly persecuted for it. It didn't seem to matter that they had always been a peaceful society, known for their beautiful architecture, food, and forms of theater. It didn't matter that their technological prowess had helped all of humanity to advance. The only thing that mattered was that the Osferi had been blessed with the ability to channel plague Eyerth, and, for this reason, they served as the perfect scapegoat for an illness that seemingly had no origin.

Thousands of lives were lost to the sickness. Thus, thousands of lives were lost to the massacre.

Scarred by these memories, Zadi has lived her life quietly and cautiously, in a small, remote compound of Osferi survivors hidden from the rest of society. Perhaps out of grief, she dedicates much of her time to preserving Osferi culture - particularly its fantastical stories, many of which she can recite by memory. It is only when telling these stories that a genuine smile crosses her face, for living in seclusion and in fear has otherwise made her a solemn person. She desperately wishes to see the faces of her parents, to hug her younger siblings, to dance amongst friends again, but these experiences were stolen from her, and it's painfully hard not to bear a grudge.

When the Osferi are found and attacked yet again, she loses any sense of restraint she may have had. Now a survivor of two targeted catastrophes, anger has become Zadi's driving force as she sets out from her small corner of the world, a knife in one hand and a compass in the other. She can still see the faces of those who appeared out of thin air, fire twisting from their palms as her home was once more set ablaze.

Why? Why did they come for the Osferi again?

As Zadi searches for answers, her determinedness and ferocity grow. Her people were pawns in a game with consequences reaching well beyond the horizon, and she has made it her mission not just to understand, but to play the game that entangles her destiny. She will do whatever it takes to seek the justice that she craves, and she will come out on top as the game's only victor.


Zadi is a character from soren's upcoming strategy roleplaying video game, Strataversal.

Zadi and Dragomir were friends before the Osferi massacre, but their shared trauma has brought them closer to each other than ever before. Dragomir is the one person Zadi confides in - a duty he proudly upholds, as it is no secret that he has romantic feelings for her, and would do anything to make her happy. Whether Zadi reciprocates those specific feelings is another story, but it can't be denied that her dear Drago is incredibly important to her, at least as a friend.
Kinsey is a strange case, in Zadi's eyes: they were one of the first people to not look down on her for being Osferi. While part of this is due to the fact that Kinsey can also channel plague Eyerth (despite not being an Osferi descendant), most of Kinsey's kindness comes from the "treat people the way you want to be treated" mantra that they live by. They're sympathetic to Zadi's past traumas and future goals, which - although slightly confusing to Zadi, as she's unsure if Kinsey really understands what they're doing - comes as a relief, after years of being afraid of outsiders.
