Ethelyn Lesterman

Former Duchess of Shale


This dark-skinned, distinguished woman in her 60s speaks with a poet’s precision, always pausing to consider her words, which helps those she’s speaking to feel like she’s giving them her full attention.

The Duchess dislikes industry and technology, and she wears extravagant diamond cluster earrings—representing the stars of the night sky—to display her allegiance to the old ways. She is rumored to be capable of using several types of magic, though some of these rumors could be exaggerations.

Currently depowered and imprisoned in Slate.
