Current Whereabouts: Working directly under the Shadow Bringer as the head of a Black Hand sleeper cell.
Status: Second in command
Dossier: An unique mix of hybrid creatures, Arora was not born as much as she was made.
She is the result of an experiment carried out by the Black Hand in a secret arcane laboratory known as “Project Incubus”. Her original name was Mevakri, a Kalastar who willingly volunteered for the experiment seeing opportunity for advancement within the organization (according to Black Hand records).
The goal of project incubus was to successfully implant a illithid larva in a Kalashtar host to gain the powers and abilities of a mind-flayer while the host mind would remain in control. Normally Mind-flayers always choose human hosts to mature in because they are the only race that produces true illithids). The idea was that as the mind-flayer larva ate into the host brain, a Kalashtar would be able to defend its higher consciousness and kill off the consciousness of the larva before to much damage could be done, then absorb the genetic material.
However Mevakri was lost in the process. Both creatures were destroyed and in there wake a new personality was born: Arora.
Arora has no memory of her life before becoming half-illithid and she has since served the Black Hand with unquestionable devotion. It wasnt long before the Shadow Bringer recognized her potential and promoted her to his second in command.
Arora is known for her efficiency and pragmatic (some times dismissive) attitude. Her telepathic ability is remarkable and her physical appearance has been known to give her an “advantage” as well.
