Story

Jaya is a native of Dominaria whose skills, abilities, recklessness and impetuousness made her influence known to the Multiverse across generations. She founded Keral Keep, a pyromantic monastery in the plane Regatha, where Chandra Nalaar trained. After the Mending, she started aging normally, unlike Teferi and Karn, and is fully accepting of the fact she is at the end of a very long and productive life.
