Tassedehami is the immortal lord who rules the Court of Ebzazire. Although he can be a fierce fighter, he dislikes conflict and prefers to get what he wants through diplomacy and guile.

Tassedehami respects the opinions of his Nayusuru servants more than most Esu and is generous towards those he likes. He can be highly perceptive, and knows how to manipulate his rivals to defend the interests of his court. His enemies consider him a sentimental fool, and are often shocked to find that he has out-maneuvered them.

Tassedehami maintains many alliances, but his closest friend is Yazelern, whom he admires for his patience and tact. He also feels sympathy for Liralian, for she is one who follows her heart – even if she criticizes him for being too emotional. Although Tassedehami supports Liralian’s dream of a better society, he usually feels forced to give his allegiance to Naskremari – a proud and difficult ally, but one who at least has the strength to protect him from his enemies.

Tassedehami by Maggie

Status: Tassedehami is one of the nine Esu Ankaykari – the immortal nobility of the magical realm. He rules the Court of Ebzazire, and traditionally has the allegiance of Drathessa and Iruzathe.

Home: Tassedehami dwells in Ebzazire, which lies in the Middle Lands of Askamar. His Citadel is called Chezorath.

Skills / Interests: Tassedehami likes composing music, writing about the plants and animals of his lands, and sculpting fantastical creatures to adorn his Citadel. His greatest magical talent is enchantment, which means that he can influence the emotions of others.

Allies: Tassedehami is sympathetic to Liralian’s philosophy, even if he does not always openly support her. While he succeeds in maintaining a difficult alliance with Naskremari – an Esu to whom he has often given his allegiance – his closest friend is Yazelern.

Enemies: Ruzenathra and Daskesurul have both tried to conquer Tassedehami’s Citadel, but the Esu he fears most is Mormariul. She took Drathessa prisoner and hideously maimed him during the Ceyth-Janzarian Wars, and he dreads the thought of ever falling under her power.

Mundane territories: Tassedehami rules no territories in the mundane world, but he once had an alliance with the kingdom of Namiva.
