Ky Sahra was a startlingly beautiful young Nyueng Bao woman who, with the rest of her people, was trapped in Dejagore at the time of Croaker's assault on the city at the head of the new Taglian army. Despite the reservations of her people, she fell in love with the soldier, Murgen, and became his wife. Together, she and Murgen had a son, Tobo, who was raised within the culture of the Black Company.
Like Willow Swan and Blade, Sahra was never formally made a member of the Company, but played a major role as a key ally, even performing the functions typically fulfilled by the lieutenant. The Nyueng Bao place the personal name last, so Sahra's family name is Ky.
During the protracted Siege of Dejagore, Sahra is with two young children but widowed. She is introduced to Murgen by her grandparents Ky Dam (the Speaker of the Nyueng Bao) and his wife, the priestess Hong Tray. The grandparents have foreseen Sahra's union with Murgen and work against the deep distrust of foreigners typical of most other Nyueng Bao. Sahra's children and her grandparents are among the many Nyueng Bao murdered by Taglians during the siege. Murgen and Sahra's brother Thai Dei round her up with the surviving family and hustle them away from the murderous carnage outside.
She is the Darkness Edit
In order to get her away from her husband, Sahra's only family members, led by Uncle Doj faked the murder of Sahra and her young son by members of the Deceivers. In reality, Doj simply drugged Sahra. When she awakened, she was told the opposite lie; that Murgen had been slain by the cultists, and with nothing to hold her to the Company, she had been removed.
Eventually, Sahra learned that Murgen was still alive, after she felt his presence when he was wandering outside of his body. She was understandably furious at the treatment she had received, and soon conceived of a plot to return to Murgen.
Water Sleeps Edit
Years later, after the Captured were interred beneath the Plain of Glittering Stone, Sahra remained with the Black Company throughout the disastrous defeats of the Kiaulune wars at the hands of Mogaba. Finally, she and Sleepy became co-leaders of the outfit more or less by default, and worked to subvert the designs of Soulcatcher in Taglios. During this time she tried to stifle One-Eye's and Goblin's attempts to apprentice Tobo in the art of magic, viewing it as overly dangerous.
Soldiers Live Edit
Upon the release of the Captured, Sahra relinquished much of her authority within the Company, as the driving force behind her actions had always been to re-unite with her husband over any sort of greater goal. However, the many years apart had changed them both significantly, and Ky Sahra had aged a great deal putting a great deal of strain upon their relationship. In addition, she increasingly bickered with her son, Tobo who saw her as overprotective and getting in the way of his ambitions. Ky Sahra was killed during the Battle for the Grove of Doom, and her body was never recovered despite Tobo's extensive search with the support of his Unknown Shadows.
