On 28th Eleasias of the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, Dura Gerathu, a ranger friend of the Lady, visited her to tell how he'd discovered the Vipers' Nest. She advised him to watch the place longer and learn all he could, but this led to Dura being murdered by the Vipers bandits. The bandits followed Dura's writings and came after the Lady next. Forewarned by the sprites she lived with, she conjured obscuring mists and illusory forests to drive the terrified bandits off. Calispar Delgorth, the leader of the assault, vowed to return and finish her later.
Afterwards, the Lady sent two sprites to check on Dura, who reported his death. At the sad news, she fell into deep mourning, not eating, sleeping, nor speaking. She waited for the Vipers to return and kill her too. [note 1]
The Lady was an elderly woman of 80 years in 1369 DR, standing only 5 feet and 4 inches (1.6 meters) tall and quite frail. Her eyes were green but faded with age, and she had long, loose iron-grey hair. She typically wore a simple home-spun brown robe.
The Lady was a close friend of the ranger Dura Gerathu. She shared the vale with a clan of sprites, who served and defended her.
