Villonah from a young age had trouble with the law, usually being saved by her father Rillo Leadstopper, who paid for the damage she did. In truth, she had joined secretly the Order of the Gauntlet and worked for them.
One day in 1489 DR, Villonah and her fellow Yllivia allowed themselves to be captured by Knights of the Black Fist in order to find a map that showed a secret white dragon lair. However, they were transported to a secret prison where corrupt Black Fists tortured prisoners for sport. Villonah was saved by adventurers hired by her father.
