The newest, and apparently the youngest of gods, Ashaya, the Demon Sorceress, first appeared shortly after the Disintegration of Kirinal. Whether the Disintegration somehow caused her birth or merely opened a portal for her to come to Erathia is unknown. Whatever her origin, Ashaya has mostly been a source of chaos, mischief, and very little evil in the past twenty years.   Ashaya most often manifests as a girl in her mid to late teens of short stature with dusky skin, short dark hair, and small, barely noticeable horns. Her eyes are a roiling mass of ever-changing colors, much like the Pit of Kirinal itself. She usually dresses like a rogue or bard, in trousers with a ruffled shirt and a vest. Her blade, Bedlam, a +5 chaotic dancing spell storing shortsword, is always sheathed at her side.   The Demon Sorceress does not concern herself with the plots or concerns of other gods. Like a newborn, she explores the potential of her own abilities, searching for new experiences and always learning. She has little empathy for other beings, and honestly doesn't realize that others have emotions or feelings. In an encounter with Ashaya, a mortal is as likely to find himself either showered with rubies or cut open alive to satisfy her curiosity. Despite her amoral nature, Ashaya is rarely cruel on purpose, she is merely, supremely self absorbed.   Ashaya's worshippers are a mixed lot of hedonists, chaos mages and madmen. Their main concern is satisfying their curiosity and pursuing their whims. The Pit of Kirinal is a holy site for her clerics and worshippers, who often attempt to bypass the Pit Guards to be near it.

She can extend her senses to up to ten locations at once. She can block the sensing powers of deities of her rank or lower at up to two remote locations at once for 11 hours.
Portfolio Sense: Ashaya senses all the casting of any spell and retains the sensation for 11 weeks after the event occurs. She is aware of any act that affects the Pit of Kirinal.
Automatic Actions: Ashaya can use Bluff, Diplomacy, Knowledge (arcana), Pick Pocket, or Spellcraft as a free action if the DC for the task is 25 or lower. She can perform up to ten such free actions each round.
