As the Dortharl believe that newborn children are the reincarnations of their ancestors, Sadu was given her name when the glimmer of the same great warrior was seen in her eyes. She was raised to be a tremendous fighter, and earned the respect of her fellow kinsmen with her ferocity and absence of any fear.
Sadu is a Xaela Au Ra with long pale-blond hair, rich blue skin, and light blue eyes. She wears a Bloodhempen gown of casting, made of blue hempen cloth with long feathers woven into a skirt. Her hand wraps are made of similar feathers, and she wears short blue trousers and golden strapped sandals. In battle, she wields a Scintillant Staff, a thaumaruge's arm with a crook made of bones.
As a member of the Dotharl, Sadu is very proud of her heritage and tribe's way of life. Though she is happy to explain her tribes' customs and culture to others, she will not suffer anyone questioning and mocking them. In addition, she holds a low opinion of the Oronir, her tribes' rivals. Despite this, Sadu respects strength and power, no matter who they are, such as her newborn friendship with peaceful-yet-resilient Cirina of the Mol tribe.
Most of all, Sadu greatly desires combat, be it one-on-one or during the annual Naadim. She feels great satisfaction whenever a strong opponent provides a challenge. As a result, she is always eager to meet and fight the Warrior of Light, the Azim Steppe's latest Khagan.
Sadu is crass and sharp with her words, using local Steppe insults to tease her opponents and rivals. Much like the rest of her tribe, Sadu is disinterested in abiding by gender expectations, as (per the Dotharl belief of reincarnation) she has lived in past lives as both a man and a woman.
Sadu is engaged as both an enemy and an ally during the Error: Could not find icon in Module:Icon duty, where she is able to summon large walls known as Stellar Chuluus, which she channels with aether in order to flatten her enemies. After the Dotharl are repelled from the ovoo and invading Garlean forces attempt to engage with the Steppe, Sadu turns her magic on the Imperials and requires protection by the player in order to complete the incantation.
