The Blade of the Raven Queen
Skie Aldersun is a retired gnome sorcerer who spent much of her youth exploring the catacombs and chambers below Cauldron. She is quite knowledgeable about the creatures, traps, dangers, and general geography of these tunnels and is always eager to share some of her tips and knowledge with paying customers.
She retired from the adventuring life nearly a decade ago when she accidently awakened a slumbering wyvern while attempting to steal some of its treasure. The enraged wyvern managed to slay the rest of her party (including her familiar, a cat named Newt,) before she managed to get away. The experience traumatized her and she swore never to meddle with monsters again, but adventuring was still in her blood. Skie decided to open a store that catered to other adventurers, and since that day she has lived vicariously through the tales of her clientele. She still maintains a terrible fear of all dragons and has never summoned a replacement familiar for her beloved Newt.
