Journal Entry[ | ]

"I won't believe there is a Behemoth that cannot be defeated."

Dr. Shaed Priyani is the founder and dean of the Orrery's School of Behemoth Studies. She has dedicated her life to understanding what makes Behemoths tick, from their physiology to their life cycles to their very origins, but not out of sympathy for the creatures. After losing her wife to a Behemoth attack, the doctor studies Behemoths only to better learn how to destroy them—and share that knowledge with every Slayer in the Shattered Isles.

"Show the Behemoths no mercy."

While young Shaed Priyani was by all accounts a happy individual with an optimistic outlook, Dr. Priyani has grown more and more driven in her self-appointed mission. That doesn't mean she has lost her drive or her sense of humour—but both have taken a dark turn. She knows that revenge is the least scientific response one could have under the circumstances, but it provides powerful motivation. For now, that's enough.

"It's past time for an expedition into the regions beyond the frontier. l'll lead one myself."

As aetheric events have grown more dire in the Maelstrom the doctor has taken the opportunity to return to the field for some personal research. The hypercharged islands emerging from the massivestorm bring strange Behemoths few if any have seen before, and she is determined these deadly new species won't take hold in the Shattered Isles.

This is not to say that she's taking up the blade of the Slayer. But she is intensifying her work with Kat Sorrel and the Slayers of Ramsgate to meet the escalating challenge.
