Somewhere in the Southern Realms…
A sign, nailed to a wall outside a tavern of very questionable reputation:
For murder, resisting arrest, assault on royal guards, high treason and witchcraft!
Short in height, slender in build. Long, black hair, unruly in appearance. Distinguishing features: black eyes and a prominent scar on upper lip. Often seen dressed in men’s attire.
Here could be seen an artist’s impression of the bust and head of the criminal. Wild, dark hair floated around a thin face; high cheekbones; furrowed brows over black orbs for eyes; and a wicked, almost malicious, smile split down the left with a ragged and hideous scar.
This woman is highly dangerous and no attempt should be made to restrain her by members of the public. She has killed before and has harmed several royal guards. Instead, all sightings and incidents should be reported to Queen Layith of Theorosana, or to the head of her personal guard, Lady Falienne.
Co-operation will be rewarded handsomely.
By royal order of the King and Queen of Theorosana.
