Lenassu Dras'ee, a Minâth Vith'kirr was born on 29 Bloom 951.

In 970, at the young age of 19, she established a network of spies and assassins called the Kamrazîr. This guild served her interests and those of the First Khazarkar Empire. It became one of the earliest guilds to perform state sponsored assassinations.

In 974, Lenassu became Queen Dras'ee of the First Khazarkar Empire. Her Kamrazîr were largely responsible for her rise. She eliminated competition, pinning the blame on other rivals. These rivals were too scared to bring charges against her. They did what was normal in the empire's game of power, plotting for the opportune time to unseat their new leader.

In 975, she enacted the Khazarkar Purity Edict. Lenassu reigned until the Eldritch Conclave took power in 993. With the Khazarkar Empire's new leaders purging the old guard, she fled by ship, heading across the Pearl Sea to the Aerie of Dragons. In this region she preached the word of Kebechet, eventually joining up with a mercenary army under a former Dragon Lord by the name of Hegmento. After murdering him in 1031, she took the title Dragon Lord of Zomaar Yelvaad. She ruled for 92 years, putting this decrepit city-state back on the map. Considered soft at times, she narrowly escaped several assassinations. Believing it was only a matter of time, in 1123 she gave up her title, moving west to Paradomea where she delved deeper into necromancy.

In 1457, at Bana-Zîr, on a faraway world, she was advancing her studies under Archmage Razzir when the place was raided by a band of adventurers named Black Banner. She accompanied them back to Bal-Kriav, becoming a party member for a time.

In the Black Tide War (1465 - 1504), she served in a minor capacity. She became jealous and a threat to the organization when in 1503, the Black Tide leader Katrana married a former Black Tide leader named Raxcvillibus Dumu-loc. It is said that Lenassu spat in Katrana's face:

....a Tragaran and a Minâth bonding? This is an affront and sacrilege to the racial purity of all Khazarkars!

- Lenassu, referring to the Khazarkar Purity Edict - "Impure Bonding"

Lenassu left the Black Tide, traveling far north into the wilds of Grashakh. Accompanying her, was a Minâth Protector named Crick. In Grashakh, she established a base at Spirit Crypt, getting into the affairs of Dumugon and the Orchish Empire. At Spirit Crypt, she also plotted against the Khazarkar Empire, scheming with the Malbazân in their goal of overthrowing the empire's theocracy.

On 17 Saunas 1515, now 561 years old and nearing the end of her Vith'kirr lifespan, she gave up her mortality, becoming a lich. A dangerous process, she sought out the help of the Council of Nine. The person that helped her embrace immortality was the Syndic Hidrist. He was eager to help. He blamed the Khazarkar Empire for the Gulimbor Cataclysm (996 - 1203) and the wars that would force the Tragarans to abandon their homeland for the southern coasts of Hells Womb and the Lands of Purity. He is said to have told Lenassu that she doesn't have time left as a mortal to restore rule by the Minâth-Nôrî, but as a lich, like him, she would have an eternity to plan and do it right.

Impatient, she did not give the planning much time. In 1517, she led an army against the Khazarkar Empire. This conflict, Dras'ee's War (1517 - 1519) failed to bring about government change. Captured, in 1519 she was sentenced; because of her family name and other factors, she escaped termination. Instead, the Pharzîmrâth had her exiled to a prison on the moon Deaths Kindle called Ink Hold. Her sentence was three centuries, from 1519 to 1819.

In 1585, after defeating her undead lords, she became ruler of Ink Hold, taking the title Queen of Ink Hold.

The first Death Ball discovered and recorded was the one at the center of the moon Deaths Kindle. This Death Ball was found in 1713 by a team of ghast explorers serving under Lenassu. It was kept secret for thirty years, finally released when a trader-spy visiting Ink Hold learned of it in one of Ink Hold's infamous necrophilia parlors.

After her sentence ended on 1 Temporal 1819, she was free to leave Ink Hold. She opted to stay in this place where she plots the return of Khazarkar rule by the Malbazân.

When she was mortal, Lenassu was a stunningly attractive woman. She was 6' tall, light purple skin, reddish-brown hair, hazel eyes, and of athletic build. She always appeared young of age, perhaps 20, and this youthfulness stayed with her until undead status. This perpetual youthfulness was a result of her being a Vith'kirr.

She has the habit of humming and singing in the most awkward of situations. She was sharp-tongued and bad tempered while mortal, something that only got worse when she became an undead.
