Yasmina is the young, beautiful, strong-willed first princess (and later devi, queen) of Vendhya. Her brother, king Bunda Chand, was murdered by magical means by the seers of Mount Yimsha, on behalf of king Yezdigerd of Turan. Having learned this, she sets out to get revenge. With the aid, albeit unintended, of Conan, she succeeds. Yasmina is flexible, empathic broadminded, and an unconventional devi, a do-it-yourself-and-don´t-leave-it-to-others person.

Since long before the days of king Kull, the earthly kingdom of Asura is the Nemesis of the earthly empire of the dark gods, ancient Mu in the eastern ocean and its daughter kingdoms, most notably Stygia. In Yasmina, Vendhya now has a leader more capable than most of her predecessors, and perhaps more motivated than any of them, to live up to this legacy. Like real India, Vendhya is he homeland of Spirit combat (unarmed combat, martial arts). A master of spirit combat, Yasmina could be able to use "pressure points" to push down thick walls, like the walls of the iron tower in Tarantia where then general Conan had been imprisoned.
