Koya Mvashti

Cleric of Desna/ Varisian Seer


Female Human Cleric
Varisian Descent


Until she passed away from natural causes just a few
months ago, Madame Niska Mvashti was the oldest person
in Sandpoint. No one quite knows exactly how old the
Varisian seer actually was when she died (she was already
old when Sandpoint was founded over 40 years ago)—but
the fact that her only daughter Koya is herself an old
woman is a telling fact. Koya has spent a fair amount
of her life traveling Varisia with a number of caravans,
serving as a healer when she was younger and
more recently as a fortune-teller. For the
past several years, she’s been traveling
with her adopted son Sandru Vhiski on a
regular caravan route that travels between
Riddleport, Magnimar, and Korvosa two or
three times a year. The caravan spends most of
its time relatively close to Sandpoint, though,
and that has suited Koya fine, since it gave her
more time to care for her aged mother.
Since old Niska’s death, however, Koya’s initial
mourning has transitioned into a sort of
morose melancholy. A life-long worshiper of
Desna, she has come to realize that while
she has traveled extensively
through the Varisian lowlands,
she’s never been beyond the
region’s borders. Tales of other
Desnan explorers have long
delighted Koya—even her
own mother reputedly took
part in several extensive
caravans that traveled
north to the Lands of the
Linnorm Kings and even
as far as Qadira. Koya’s
having something of a
late-life crisis as a result—a
growing sense of disappointment
that she’s never made a long caravan
trek. With her mother dead, Koya
has little reason to stay in Varisia,
and she’s been pressuring Sandru to
take a long journey soon: “The sooner
the better, ’cause I won’t be around
for long!” Koya’s in remarkably good
shape, physically, for a woman well over
60 years of age—obviously, longevity
runs in her family—but with each year
that passes, the chance of her having
the chance to experience a truly
epic journey like the ones in her
favorite stories grows slimmer.
