This dark-skinned, distinguished woman in her 60s speaks with a poet’s precision, always pausing to consider her words before speaking, which helps those she’s speaking to feel like she’s giving them her full attention. She dislikes industry and wears extravagant diamond cluster earrings—representing the stars of the night sky—to show her allegiance to the old ways. Accounts tell of her possessing many different types of magic, though many of these could be exaggerated.
As has now become obvious, the Duchess’ aversion to technology managed to reach new heights when she attempted to kill her brother. Rumors indicate that she hoped to steer Risur back to the old ways, but that can not be confirmed since she made her escape from the Coaltongue before she could be questioned. The fact that she was aided in her escape by an archfey is, however, very telling.
