Bio: Say hello to the daughter of Peruses and Medusa. Yes I know, he chopped off Medusa’s head and all. Ignore that will you. As it turns out, Medusa was so taken with the dear Peruses she halted her vision and spent quite a few pleasant months with the hero in her island home. But it was not to last. Peruses friends came seeking him and slew his lover by accident, so terrified of her visage they didn’t stop. Even when Peruses began to weep at her death. It was not till the night, when Medusa’s sisters returned that her body pushed out the egg containing Oriah.

Oriah is something of a girly girl. She loves clothing and boys, flirting to her hearts content in the local market where they have grown used to her presence.

She wants to travel, but has been warned that Gorgon or not, this is a dangerous land and a woman should not go off on her own.
