Saroparel is the immortal lady who rules the Court of Imbire. Although she seems one of the less aggressive Esu, this is only because she believes that supremacy must be achieved through subtlety.
Saroparel appears graceful and serene, but there is a coldness in her eyes, and her servants know they will be punished if they fail to comply with her demands.
Saroparel can be exceedingly eloquent, and the other Esu often let themselves be persuaded by her because they do not perceive her as a threat. Even her closest allies tend to dismiss her ambitions, but Saroparel is endlessly patient when it comes to politics. She loves beauty, and much of her time is spent honing her artistic talents.
Saroparel feels withering scorn towards Esu such as Naskremari and Ruzenathra who say there is glory in battle. She hates the ‘disordered violence’ of war and argues that it is barbaric to storm the Citadels of others. Despite this, Liralian calls her a hypocrite who speaks of harmony but oppresses those under her power.
