Possible Plot-Hook Ideas and Misc Facts:
-Currently a Zhentarim Agent.
-Currently conscripted in the Ebon Blades.
-Recently traded herself for three prisoners associated with the Black Network, held in the Ebon Blade dungeon. After almost a week in the cage, Marietta was conscripted for two moon cycles of indentured servitude to The Ebon Blades.
-Commonly seen guarding the Boareskyr Bridge.
-Working on gaining influence in Baldur's Gate, particularly its trade markets.
-Had a hand in the sudden death of Elle Carroll after outing the Loviatarian's misdeeds and nefarious plans against the Flaming Fist.
-Gives free tarot readings upon request, often with a condescending Banite spin on them.
-Restored Hinzel's sight with surgical instruments and scrolls upon the altar of Bane below the Winding Way Tavern, without the use of sedatives. True to her nature, she left him with a nasty scar to remind him of his weakness.
"I have never operated on eyes before, but I brushed up on the optical manual last night so what could possibly go wrong?"
-Was romantically linked to the infamous scoundrel Harlos Lackman very shortly before his latest mysterious death/disappearance. She claims no knowledge about what happened, but she also does not seem terribly bothered by his loss.
OOC: I made the (perhaps foolish) decision to post some of her bio in the public format to invite RP, rather than repel it. Please do not metagame. Thank you.
And please do not be afraid of interaction. Nothing will happen without consent of both parties.
