Secrets of Pavis
Stalethia the Moondancer
Silver haired Agent of Hon-Eel the Artess
Stalethia is a direct descendent of HonEel herself, although via a cadet branch, and therefore a distant cousin of JarEel the Razoress. She therefore considers herself akin to a demigoddess, although few others do. She has therefore trained herself to the utmost to perform missions on behalf of the Emperor in the hope that Takenegi might notice her and raise her to her appropriate position of honor. She is willing to do anything in the service of the Empire and to honor her ancestor. Fortune has brought her to Prax, where she is working with Imperial intelligence to subvert local authority and bring it under the control of the Count of Prax, her cousin Sor-Eel the Short. Stalethia’s preferred modus operandi is seduction (either sex, she doesn’t care), although if she has to engage in combat she is no slouch, and her Lunar Magic and heroic abilities can make her extremely deadly.
In appearance, she resembles mostly a high-class Lunar courtesan. She generally wears just a loose-fitting silken garment of red and silver silk that gives the promise of revealing more than it conceals. She goes barefoot and wears many silver anklets, bangles, nose-rings and other items of jewelry. She is heavily tattooed, with representations of HonEel’s life and rune tattoos extending even to her face. Her hair is silver, and is usually worn up, piled elaborately on top of her head, held in place by four ruby pins, which double as darts. When she lets her hair down, it initially appears to be waist-length, but can grow magically when she uses her Silver Hair Dance legendary ability. She moves with the grace of a cat, and even when walking appears to be dancing.
She will often use her Lunar Magic to combine her “social” spells and increase their duration, before an evening’s mission. When necessary, she will enhance with Aphrodisiac. If forced into combat, she will use Disarm first, use Lunar Magic to combine combat spells, throw up Absorption either duel an individual using her heroic abilities to the utmost or cast out multiple Disruptions using her Lunar Magic if possible. She tends to avoid getting into potential combat situations on Dark or Dying Moon days.
