Duvessa Shane was the speaker of Bryn Shander in 1485 DR[1] and sometime after the War of the Silver Marches.[3]

HistoryEdit

Duvessa was the daughter of a Waterdhavian trader and a woman of Icewind Dale.

In time, she became the speaker of Bryn Shander and leader of the Ten Towns's council. In 1485 DR, with many threats to the dale arising, Duvessa met and befriended a trader from Waterdeep, Vaelish Gant, who soon became her unofficial political aide. On Eleint 23 of that year, an election was called for the position of speaker and Duvessa ran for reelection. What she did not know was that Vaelish was secretly a wizard from Arcane Brotherhood who plotted to replace her and had engineered some of the troubles in the dale. Vaelish's plan was to kidnap Duvessa on election day and afterward propose himself as a stronger leader.[1]

In the late 1480s or early 1490s DR she was at the council chamber when giants attacked the city.[4]

PersonalityEdit

Duvessa inherited her mother's talent for negotiation and her father's charm. Some people thought her temerity but she always obtained what she wanted[3] She believed that people of Ten Towns can survive all kind of storm. Duvessa no gave a inch in any argument or conflict.[2]

AppearancesEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

It is possible that, in order to fight Akar Kessell and Hedrun Arnsfirth more efficiently, a group of adventurers permitted Vaelish's plan to ruin Duvessa's political career to be successful.

Duvessa was one of the special NPC in Storm King's Thunder that can be played by the players during the campaign's arc in their city.
