Peleps Najalin Sekal was always pegged for greatness. From her youth in primary school, where she bore the marks of a true Water Aspect and garnered awe everywhere he went for her prowess at the children's competitions held (informally) by parents from the Najalin line. And then she rebelled.
When she turned 13, she decided she didn't like the Realm. It was all very stuffy, slowly grinding away as the world changed around it, heedless as it careened towards a cliff. She espoused this view, but her family considered her but a child, and paid her no mind. Her teachers and mentors laughed and laughed, applauding her for her perception but not even bothering to humor her.
She continued to advocate sweeping change in the Realm until she exalted in the middle of a class on naval history in the House of Bells, drenching her nearby classmates. Since then she's kept a more civil profile, but if questioned about her beliefs will defend them rabidly. Her able performances in primary and secondary school marked her in the Empress' eyes, getting her into the Imperial Experimental Weapons and Tactics Wing, where she learned more than she ever thought she would in the House of Bells.
Sekal is a fairly wiry 20 year old woman who bears the obvious markings of her Aspect in her deep blue hair and light blueish-pink skin. She stands about 5'11", with a mostly average build but a strong arm and back.

This effect also gives the target a -2 internal penalty to all attempts to hide from the user for two actions. May activate a second version for 5m, when hit by any violent attack, making a normal counterattack at their full dicepool; this counterattack does bashing, it instead inflicts lethal damage, and if already able to inflict lethal it adds +3L to the damage. Reduces the user's DVs by 1 for the action.

Gifted to her by Peleps Najalin himself, Rocky Crag of Learning is a large gorge built for human habitation, with rooms built into the side of the gorge. A staff of about 10-15 mortals lives in the manse, training and preparing for war. Sekal uses the place as a chance to train herself and allows free use of it by fellow Peleps, should they choose. Should they accept the offer, they can expect Sekal to attempt to indoctrinate them in her rather strange political philosophy.
