Tales of Auriga
Yashaj, Goddess of Pain
Yashaj is a cold-hearted bully, calculating and despotic; she is the master of inflicting physical and psychological pain and torture.
Yashaj’s followers are known as the Zho’Yashaji, and their goal is to bring pain and suffering to others, either through physical torture or sometimes more subtly and psychologically. For the Ardent Magi, this requirement of Yashaj is often fulfilled by their own self-abuse, and therefore Ardent Mage followers are markedly less violent than follows of the other races.
Beauty, intelligence and acting are useful attributes of a follower of Yashaj, but the ability to fully understand someone is the best skill a Zho’Yashaji can acquire, as knowing someone fully can help a Zho’Yashaji inflict maximum pain, one way or another.
