Oma Kurita was the younger sister of Jason Kurita and the great-granddaughter of Urizen Kurita. [3]

History[edit]

Oma was youngest child of Vladimir Kurita and was thought to have been killed in the same terrorist attack on Rasalhague by rebels from the Principality of Rasalhague in December 2375 that killed most of her branch of the Kurita family. She was eighteen years old at that time although her body was not found among the dead.[4]

Oma had actually been taken captive by the rebels during the attack, and when word of Oma's fate became known in 2377, Adam Kurita led the rescue operation. After several harrowing encounters and an exhaustive firefight, Oma and her newborn son, Daniel, returned to the safety of New Samarkand. Oma apparently had fallen in love with Jan Sorenson, the High Chieftain of her captors, and in a strange and fortuitous turn of Stockholm syndrome, married him. Jan was killed during the rescue mission.

Oma never recovered from grief for her husband, sinking deep into an addiction to absinthe. At only forty years of age, she died in 2397 from chronic liver failure and related complications.[5]

Legacy[edit]

Oma's son Daniel would go on to seize control of the Principality of Rasalhague with assistance from two of his Kuritan cousins, overthrowing Jason Kurita, serving as Lord with the goal of ending all oppression of its citizens and offering opposition to Nihongi von Rohrs following the 2421 coup that saw Nihongi seize the Draconis Combine throne.[6]
