Saria Josephine, Countess of Airujarin IOB (Sabian: saria nadiavái xosefínn; born Laura A. G.), known in the Church of the Pahun as Senna I Ashminasuunu is a Sabioveronese politician who served as the last Governor of Sabia and Verona and former Pahunist High Priestess, the highest position of the old hierarchy. During her tenure as High Priestess, the Church saw itself divided into two "schools of enlightment", the Nikolaeist School and the Fäkhist School. Both schools however recognized her as the Church's Supreme Spiritual Leader. On September 2013, she announced she had intentions of stepping down from her office without giving any specific reasons. On 23 February, 2014 she became part of the new Senate of Sabia and Verona as part of the Convergence and Amity party, causing controversy due to her position as a spiritual figure.

Early and personal life

She was born in Western Venezuela into a nuclear family of professionals. She has a younger brother and relatives in the North. Josephine is known to be a close friend of Queen Isadora and former Artaghean politician Aina Oehler. Josephine is associated to the Vaaitos Prefecture of Lycem. Since 2013 she has been in a relationship with Venezuelan American Dan Ahêrot. In 2014, Ahêrot obtained Sabioveronese citizenship by entering souxar with Josephine.

Political career

She had previously been a political figure in times of Montriac, but abandoned micronational politics until her rise in the Church of the Pahun. Already as High Priestess, the Church received a massive reception, and it summed followers all across Lycem and Sabia, in contrast to former High Priest Lajam's inactive period. When the Lycene People's Republic was disestablished in June 2013, she was granted Sabioveronese citizenship. She was chosen to be one of the first Senators of Sabia and Verona in February 2014, and she chose to be part of the Convergence and Amity party after meeting party leader Ryam Piper.

She was chosen by Her Royal Highness Queen Isadora on 3 November 2014 to succeed Tarik Kârjasary as Governor of Sabia and Verona.

In 12 July 2015 the position of Governor, alongside the position of Prime Minister and the Legislative Courts were discontinued from the political system of Sabia and Verona, instead being replaced by the transitory position of High Commissioner which was occupied by PM Bertrand Rivière.

Artistic work

Josephine is known for her artistic skills that have been developed over her time in the Church of the Pahun. Her works have been considered few of the religious art present in Sabia and Verona. She was the first artist to make contundent depictions of the Pahun as a figure rather than as an abstract being. The first recorded painting of the Pahun was as a polar bear. The face used in the polar bear was featured in future depictions of the Pahun and has come to be a figure of adoration and praise in both Nikolaeist and Fäkhist schools. The face was named "Fabuloso", and became common among the Nikolaeist School of Pahunism.
