Powers and Abilities

Lady Chian is a master swordswoman as well as a superb fighter with the dagger, the hand-held blaster, and other weaponry of her day. Chian is also an excellent hand-to-hand combatant and a competent officer.


Lady Chian was born around 45,000 years ago. She was the daughter of the master artisan Sato, lord of the House of Shonan in Hoshan, one of the 12 states of Atlantis. Ages before, an ancestor of Chian’s rebelled against the warlord who was his master.

As punishment, Chian’s ancestor was forced to swear that once per century a child from his family would be sent to the warlord’s realm. Hence Sato was forced to give his beloved Chian over to the warlord of his own time.

Chian, a gentle young girl, was terribly anguished at being torn from her father and their peaceful home. The warlord’s taskmasters trained her to be a warrior, and Chian’s hatred of their cruelty (and of her father for letting be taken away) motivated her to master the skills of combat.

Finally, Chian slew three of the taskmasters and fled the warlord’s keep, never to return. She spent the next years wandering from place to place as a highly successful mercenary warrior.

Eventually, Chian came to the City of the Golden Gate, the leading city of Atlantis. There she became the captain of King D’tilluh’s royal guard. She also met Arion, D’tilluh’s chief mage. Arion and Chian became both lovers and allies, and shared many adventures defending Atlantean civilisation from various threats.

Chian accompanied Arion and other survivors to safety when Atlantis finally sank. Her ultimate fate is as yet unknown.
