World of Wu-Yu
Sri Mahani is one of the two most respected leaders of the Tathatan religion. His chief rival is Sri Gunda. They are both critical of the current Orc-led Imperial regime. The difference between the two is methodology: while Sri Mahani is a stalwart promoter of peaceful demonstration, Sri Gunda advocates protest by any means necessary.
Sri Mahani is an aged Dwarf from Arjunasi, one of the seven city-states of The Tathatan. His chief aide and supporter is a Dwarf priestess named Qatiri.
