, who was among the crew of Cobiah Marriner
's ship, was an asuran mesmer
that sacrificed herself to defeat the Maw
, an undead leviathan
that attacked Lion's Arch
in 1256 AE
. She was described as having a thickly braided loop of leather on the top of her head that held back orange, green, blue, and pink-dyed braids that went down her back and over her shoulder. She wore an embroidered blue smock with a magical
-looking bird's-eye pattern stitched on the chest, and blue-black feathers hung from gold cuffs above her elbows, although in later years, she'd exchanged her blue feather robe for a plainer set of clothing.
She wore a turquoise bracelet around the top of one arm, a mark of her advancement in the asuran colleges—genius first grade. Its inscriptions matched the markings of Macha's invention, a navigational tool she had titled "the sextant". The first norn who laughed at the name found himself unable to speak properly for a week. Regardless of that, the instrument had so revolutionized navigation that the city had named a section of the docks after her: Macha's Landing.
