Nashira Sargas, also known as The Suzerain, is the blood-sovereign of the Rephaim, a position she shares with Gomeisa Sargas. She is the creator of Scion and means to use it to control clairvoyants and fight the Emim. Her aim is to eventually take over the human world. Nashira is the main antagonist of The Bone Season

Background Edit

Nashira originally lived in the Netherworld under the rule of the Mothallath family. The Sargas revolted against the Mothallath after the Waning of the Veils and defeated the Mothallath's supporters, the Ranthen. After their victory Nashira became blood-sovereign and chose an unwilling Arcturus Mesarthim as her blood-consort.

Appearance Edit

Nashira is well over six feet tall. Her features are "perfectly symmetrical: a long, straight nose, high cheekbones, deep-set eyes fixed in her face". She has thick brassy hair and hooded eyes that change color when she feeds on aura. When Paige Mahoney sees Lucida Sargas for the first time in The Mime Order, she describes her as having "Nashira's complexion - somewhere between silver and gold, more on the silver side".

Etymology Edit

Nashira (Gamma Capricorni) is a giant star in the constellation Capricornus. The name is derived from the Arabic سعد ناشرة sa'd nashirah "the lucky one" or "bearer of good news"[1]

Sargas (Theta Scorpii) is a binary star in the constellation Scorpius.[2] The name is of Sumerian origin and means "seizer" or "smiter"[3].
