- Vraska is a black and green-aligned gorgon planeswalker assassin from Ravnica. Her life had been fairly simple in the undercity, until the Azorius Senate issued a writ of mass arrest for any and all members caught bearing allegiance to the Golgari. Her spark ignited when she was severely beaten, throwing her away from the world she knew. She lay in the darkness, unable to understand what had happened and much time passed before she learned to control her abilities.
Later, Nicol Bolas offered to make her the guildmaster of the Golgari and bring those to justice that preyed on the downtrodden, if she would travel to Ixalan and deliver the item stored in the Golden City of Orazca to one of his agents. To aid her in this, Bolas gifted Vraska with a Thaumatic Compass and the knowledge of sailing.
