Stepdaughter to one of the nobles of Meridian, Umah’s fascination with the fantastic, gothic and taboo often led the young woman into situations way over her head. As the Sarafan Empire grew in power and began to slowly replace the overly-bureaucratic and impotent Meridian Republic, Umah and her stepfather were vocal in their opposition to the Sarafan Lord. Secretly, the two had formed an alliance with the vampire rebellion of Meridian, the second Vorador embracing the old saying ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend.’
The Sarafan Lord was still accumulating his power, and to dispose of the noble family publicly would have been a political disaster. He ordered the Sarafan Darktroopers, a secret regiment of the Sarafan Elite, to kidnap Umah and bring her to him in The Device. Demanding to know the location of the vampire rebellion, the Sarafan Lord attempted to torture the information out of her, but her will was strong and she resisted. A suggestion from the Vamperor proved much more effective though.
Bringing her to the Device control room, he stated that if she does not divulge the location of the rebel base, then he would test The Device’s destructive capabilities on her family’s mansion. She begged for their lives, before finally giving the lie that the base was located on Datooine Street.
The Sarafan Lord ordered his men to continue with the operation, and Umah watched in horror as The Device directed a burst of energy into her family’s mansion. Though the mansion was not structurally damaged, every living thing within was killed.
The Sarafan Lord was pleased with the demonstration; certain that upon completion The Device was going to be very destructive indeed. He thanked Umah, before raising his blade and impaling her through the torso. She died.
She awoke days later in the heart of The Cabal. The second Vorador soothed her, explaining that they found her body floating in the Meridian river. As a way of repaying her late stepfather for all of his help to them, they revived her as a vampire.
Umah adjusted quickly, learning new skills and gifts, and rising in status and prestige.
A century later, the situation had deteriorated dramatically. The Sarafan Empire controlled almost everything, the humans and vampires of Meridian were oppressed under the harsh dictatorship of the Sarafan Lord. Dissent and opposition were eliminated, and the Sarafan ruled through a doctrine of fear.
She never made it. Attempting to commandeer an Imperial Sarafan Destroyer to sail to the ancient Hylden City, she was caught by the Sarafan Darktroopers. She killed many, but not enough and the loss of blood became too much. Collapsing on a pier next to the sea, she was discovered by Kain who effortlessly murdered the last of the Darktroopers.
Umah begged for some blood, but Kain was convinced that like so many others, she was a servant to the Sarafan Lord. Regretting every moment of it, but convinced of the necessity, Kain ripped a gash in Umah’s throat and let her die.
As Kain discovered in his confrontation with the Sarafan Lord though, Umah was no spy for him. Kain regretted his action, unable to see that someone opposed to the Sarafan Lord may be opposed to him too. Never one to dwell on the past though, Kain buried his feelings of regret deep down.
Unknown to the young vampire, Umah’s body had been taken to the laboratories of the Super Sarafan Destroyer for analysis. When the massive ship follows Kain back in time at the beginning of Legacy of Turelzevir: Doll Reaver™, the Sarafan Lord orders his scientists to repair Umah’s injuries and pump blood back into her veins, reviving her. Umah is to be the bait to lure Kain and his allies into the Super Sarafan Destroyer.
Umah is freed in the rescue attempt, at a sacrifice to one of the members of the rebellion. She proceeds to become a member of the new vampire resistance in Nosgoth’s past, and romance blooms…
