The Scourge Fleetmaster Arika Zenthe in action.

Arika Zenthe is a Aelf Fleetmaster and commander of the Scourge Privateers fleet based in Excelsis.[1]

The daughter of the Fleetmaster Zarkland Zenthe who she has tried to kill on a number of occasions.[2] She is also an associate of Hanniver Toll and her flagship is the Thrice Lucky.[1c]

Appearance

Her look is both beautiful and deadly – she is tall and slender, projecting an aura of both strength and agility. Her white hair is sometimes cut short, spiked at the tips and she favours a long coat of leather, itself embellished with images of the Kraken, the spiked collar framing her face. [1a] Her weapons of choice are a jewelled cutlass and a tri-bladed main gauche. [1b]

History

She was born more than five hundred years ago on the Black Ark Eternity of Torment.[2a] Her mother and all but one of brothers were sacrificed to prolong the life of her father who had been cursed[2c] - she and her last brother Levrid attempted to escape but were captured and he was killed in turn to give her father another hundred years, although he begged him to take Arika instead. [2b]

In her long career as a corsair she has killed the God of Sharks and destroyed the Sepulchral Fleet in the Straight of Bal-ah-bek. [1a]

As the Age of Sigmar progressed she was considered the ruler of the harbour of Excelsis and from this base terrorised the Coast of Tusks. [1a]

She traded favours with the Witch Hunter Hanniver Toll and he was able to contact her in extremis with a Kraken’s Eye, a magical orb. [1a] and with this he contacted her to first release him from prison and then help save the city of Excelsis from an uprising by the Cult of the Fated Path.[1]

Quotes

By the black depths, I needed that. You’ve no idea how dull it is to be anchored in Excelsis harbour, sitting there counting coins with nothing to kill.
