Vesh is a dark entity who claimed godhood to Kashaw, though she is not in fact a goddess.[3] Gods cannot go past the Divine Gate, which revealed her as something else entirely.


Vesh appears to be a human woman with long purple hair, solidly white eyes, and unnaturally long arms and fingers with claw-like nails. Her skin is faintly glowing gray.[4]


Vesh married a human named Kashaw when he was born. She slaughtered everyone else in the village, and came back to consummate the marriage on his fifteenth naming-day. As part of a ritual called "The Sting of the Hundred", Kashaw inflicted fifty cuts upon his own right arm, and Vesh made the next fifty. When Kashaw's blood mixed with Vesh's sweat, he gained all of her memories, which is when he discovered she was evil. In order to balance Vesh's dark powers, Kashaw was raised as a healer, and tried to kill her when he was fifteen. He hasn't seen her since.[5]


Vesh's symbol is a crimson ring hanging from a chain.[6]
