Hoard of the Dragon Queen
Valaric's Mentor and Adopted Mother
She is a member of the College of Lore (hence Valaric’s choice to follow in her footsteps). Highly talented and graceful she is a master of the elven harp, flute and a highly accomplished dancer/acrobat. Like most half-elves she is good aligned but chaotic in nature. She is against evil but understands that the world is more grey than black and white. She likes people that try their best despite their circumstances rather than those that just give up. She generally barracks for the underdog and this is is part of what drew her to Valaric. She had been watching him for some time, picking peoples pockets during some of her performances. She noted his skills and dexterity and noted that Valaric used to help out the other younger streetkids that used to hang around him (not just stealing for himself). So when Valaric finally tried to pickpocket her earnings she caught him and took him under her wing. She always taught Valaric to strive to be a better man and to put his talents to something useful – that he was meant for better things than just lifting purses. She might frown upon that part of his character today. It’s not that he is breaking the law, its that he is wasting his great talents on thinking small.
