Queen of Syria, Mavia led her Saracen troops in a rebellion
against Rome, winning battle after battle until the Roman army
retreated from her domain. After their defeat, the Romans gave her the
title "Princepia Altoratrix" in
recognition of her role as caretaker of her people. Mavia
governed her people in peace for many years, but as time went by, she
became restless. Through her efforts, her people had grown strong in
both spirit and mind and could care for themselves. However,
beyond her kingdom, many still suffered under the burdens of tyranny
and injustice. Therefore, Mavia decided to dedicate herself to the
defense of all free people who suffered unrightfully.
She traveled through many lands
as a hero and champion of the weak and downtrodden. It was during this
time that she rescued Djadan, prince of the Ravens, from the clutches
of the Sorcerer-King of Khadein. In gratitude, he granted to her the
gift of flight.
When the forces of darkness
launched their latest attack, Mavia gathered together a multitude of
refugees whom she led to safety in Questport. There she was implored
by the Supreme Council to take up the defense of the Citadel, for they
knew that she alone possessed the strength and compassion needed to
keep safe those within. She accepted the burden and now works
tirelessly to keep the darkness at bay.
