More than 5 bitter years on the wind-battered Whyrlis Rock have given the mysterious and beautiful Alahandra Boisich the graying aspect of a much older woman. Nevertheless, she remains keen as ever, running an elaborate slaving operation based out of Chalk Harbor, where she forces any victims she captures at sea to work in the mines for a minimum of 2 years before releasing them. Despite her questionable means of acquiring workers, Alahandra proves to be a relatively kind overseer, and makes sure her enslaved miners are fed and watered. None know what the pirate lord hopes to find in her excavations of the rugged stone that makes up most of Whyrlis Rock, though in recent months she has become increasingly excited at her project’s progress, leading her allies to believe they may be close to uncovering whatever it is she’s seeking.
