Tashanna is a daughter of Baba Yaga. She was the ninth Queen of Irrisen, reigning from 4113 AR until 4213 AR.[1]

Background

In 4113 AR, Tashanna was placed on Irrisen's throne, succeeding her sister Karina. In 4155 AR, she invaded the Realm of the Mammoth Lords, conquering all land from the Frozen Road and the Gullik River to the base of the Tusk Mountains, and built the city of Tashagrot to serve as the new provincial capital. However, this conquest only lasted for four years before the land was reclaimed by the Mammoth Lords.[1]

Near the end of her reign, Tashanna became suspicious of Baba Yaga's purpose in installing her daughters as Irriseni monarchs.[2] When the time came for Baba Yaga to return to Golarion and replace Tashanna with her next daughter, she used the Torc of Kostchtchie to force Kostchtchie to participate in a rebellion against her mother. However, Tashanna underestimated Baba Yaga's power: after defeating Kostchchie, she put down Tashanna's rebellion, captured her, paraded her before her defeated troops, then executed all of them and interred them in the Veil of Frozen Tears, a hidden necropolis in northern Irrisen.[3]

Baba Yaga then installed Velikas to replace Tashanna as queen of Irrisen.[1] Nevertheless, she was impressed by the rebellion such that she did not turn Tashanna into a crone queen like her predecessors.[4] Instead, Tashanna was forever banished from Golarion and the surrounding planes so she could no longer interfere in her mother's plots but can still rule elsewhere as a tyrant and demon binder.[5]

In 4713 AR, Elvanna, incumbent and soon-to-be-removed queen of Irrisen, discovered Tashanna's journal, and from it, discovered Baba Yaga's plans for her daughters.[6]
