Sadu of the Dotharl is an Au Ra found in The Azim Steppe. She was first introduced with the Stormblood expansion as the volatile khatun of the Dotharl Xaela tribe. Sadu plays a major role in the expansion's main story quests associated with her tribe, and makes further appearances in later content, including a handful of main story quests for Endwalker.

“With death a warrior must dance boldly. Fearlessly. For thus does his soul burn bright.”

The khatun of the Dotharl, Sadu is a fervent devotee of her tribe's traditions, and so does not hesitate to lead them into battle--even if at a tremendous disadvantage--with utter disregard for her own well-being. When not slaughtering her enemies on the field, the woman of twenty-seven summers looks after her people with surprising care and concern. She is quick to assess difficult situations and deliver pragmatic commands, and this same sound judgment serves her well when searching the eyes of newborns to identify the old souls within.[1] Some might describe her as a fierce yet enigmatic figure, who if spied at a distance on a crisp moonlit night, s the soft notes of a morin khuur float on the wind, against the backdrop of a thousand thousand twinkling stars... one's hear might just skip a beat. Yet one would be wise to tread with caution, for Sadu Heavensflame loves little else other than red meat and war, and will not suffer arrogant men.

Favored Weapon

The Shattered Star: Sadu's weapon of choice, its crown is said to have been fashioned from a fragment of a fallen star by her incarnation three generations ago. Even now it retains a measure of divinity, and who would dare wield it must be possessed of extraordinary strength to bend its magicks to her will.
