The Revered and Reviled
Sariah grew up in the town of Aedis and was good friends with Taithar. After Taithar was drawn back to his home town, he and Sariah reconnected and fell in love. She and Taithar have a stable relationship at the moment, but they have had plenty of rough patches in the past, most of which have to do with Taithar’s reputation as a mass-murderer (of rebels) and his service to Xyphon, even though he has frequently voiced his dislike of the upper class. She and Taithar are married, and have a son named Ethan, who is two. One of the bonuses of being married to a Xyphonaean Prefect is that even if he’s unpopular, you have a nice house in the capital. It’s nowhere near as nice as Xyphon could afford to give, but it’s much better than the houses they grew up in Aedis. Sariah spends her time taking care of her son and reading up on ancient history, a newly discovered interest of hers.
