They say there are no better masters of fencing in Praia than the four-armed magicians of the sword, the nagas. But it's not only their physical features and talents that earn them victory: tenacity is their greatest virtue. It can cause even the most powerful opponent to capitulate.

In his youth, this future hero saw how aggressively a naga can fight, like a pack of wolves: one of the Dokht gamekeepers wanted to hunt down a snake-man, but failed miserably. The naga’s fantastic mastery of his swords amazed the boy, and he swore he would become a disciple of the blades. He trained extensively, and by his twentieth birthday he had become a skillful warrior. Desiring to prove himself, the young fighter headed for the woods of the nagas and challenged their best swordsman to a duel.

He lost. With great solemnity, the snake-men buried the brave man's slashed body, but he stubbornly returned, as a hero. Handing his Catalyst over to a lord, he negotiated rather unusual conditions of service. Then he returned to the nagas, desiring to cross swords with their champion. He fell in battle once again, but, being restored to life, he swore he would never stop trying until he was victorious.

The lord, who had to bring the fallen hero back from the dead time and again, once mentioned him at a highbrow dinner party. Lady Iness, who owned the Hall of Peace at the time, was at the reception. Considered the best in the kingdom at the art of resuscitation, she was stunned when she heard of swordsman's tenacity. She composed a special Song of Return for her fellow lord. The next time the hero died, he was reborn in the form of a naga, allowing him to gain his long-awaited victory.

This technique of transforming human heroes into nagas later became known to other skillful lords. A multitude of famous swordsmen resolved to change their form to become like Sesha so that they too could fight in the new war against the Imperium with four blades at once.
