Kanz'ztera is the result of the union between the demon prince Graz'zt and a nymph. Raised with her twin sister in her father's court, she quickly determined that the route to power and influence was through her father's influence and patronage. Rivalry between her and her sister, Ankerika, over her father's affections eventually erupted into blazing love-hate relationship. After Ankerika made several unsuccessful attempts upon her life, Kanz'ztera turned the court of Graz'zt against her sister and forced Ankerika to flee.
Kanz'ztera swore herself to her father's service and has become one of his more powerful and influential agents. When not participating in the intrigues of Graz'zt's court, she is often sent to act as her father's representative to other powerful demons when he seeks favours, alliances, treaties or, most commonly, to set them up for betrayal. She also acts as his emissary to the more powerful and favoured members of his cults on the prime plane, or to seek retribution against those who have harmed his causes. Kanz'ztera is a powerful spellcaster in her own right, and she rarely travels without a guard of several powerful demons.
Although loyal to her father for the time being, Kanz'ztera knows that there must come a time when her personal power begins to rival that of her father, and she is preparing for when that time comes. Ideally she hopes to usurp Graz'zt and take on his mantle of power, but failing that she plans to escape and ally herself with her sister or a powerful demon lord. Kanz'ztera has built up a group within those who serve Graz'zt who owe her favours, or who are loyal to her before her father to protect her during the coming power struggle.
Kanz'ztera has the unearthly beauty and grace of a nymph, but her heritage is betrayed by her wings, her claws and fangs, and her glowing red eyes. Like her father, she has six fingers on each hand, and skin of ebony.
Kanz'ztera does not enter melee combat she can avoid it, preferring to flee if pressed. Kanz'ztera prefers to hang back and use her spells against enemies in melee against her minions, using her spellstrike ability to deal additional damage. A favourite tactic is to stun a creature with her stunning glance, and then use her spell betrayal ability on them.
If forced into melee she either uses her souldrinking dagger, or casts greater magic fang upon herself and uses claws and teeth.
