Base Class & Proposed Development: 30 warlock. If pact is broken, 27 bard/3 blackguard.
Habits/Hobbies: To be disclosed in RP. She has the oft-infuriating habit of agreeing to meet via Sending, drinking a Mind Blank potion, and standing the person up to indicate her displeasure with them. Making the dead walk. Obnoxiously imitating the mannerisms and speech of people she dislikes. Attempting to reeducate her friends and lovers. Suffering the negative consequences of her massive commitment issues. Being a maneater - figuratively and literally. Partying hard. Working on becoming more serious and setting firm boundaries.

Background:
-Was a Lliiran in her youth and trained to become a Joydancer. This training was never brought to completion, however, due to her capture.
-Former Zhentarim slave. Gathered proof that her former owner, a Zhent commander, was feeding relevant information to the Harpers. She gathered sufficient proof and killed him, thus earning her "freedom".
-Shortly thereafter, she was betrothed to another Zhent in an arranged marriage. She ended his life too, and did her damnedest to cover it up though this may come back to haunt her.



Goals:
-Establish herself and gain influence at Darkhold.
-Wax poetic about Bane's vision of peace and harmony (she is boisterously fanatical about this.)
-Investigate the temple ruins below Soubar.
-Break her pact.
-...and become a "paladin of righteous order". (Read: blackguard)
-Has Antisocial Personality Disorder.
-More to be disclosed in RP.



Possible Plot-Hook Ideas and Misc Facts:
-Currently a Zhentarim Agent.
-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.

((More musics, bio expanded with more artwork, and some of the association songs changed - namely Harlos Lackman and Fenix Wandersoul.))
