Upon first encountering the duo, one might think the spindly Delemona is the rogue and the good-looking Little Shaggard the bard, but when either opens her or his mouth, it quickly becomes clear which is which. Delemona wins over friends and foes alike with her fantastic storytelling and beautiful music, and her warm, treacly voice seems completely at odds with her twiggy frame. Little Shaggard, in contrast, has a tongue as sharp as his blade, and little time for pleasantries despite his approachable and handsome visage. Both are devout followers of Cayden Cailean, and jointly rule over the town of Lilywhite since Shaggard’s father passed 20 years ago. In keeping with the Lucky Drunk’s attitude toward slavery, the pair of swashbucklers has taken up arms in the anti-slavery movement throughout the Shackles as Jolis Raff les’s own campaign against the practice loses momentum, often attributing their own deeds to the half ling in hopes of rekindling fervor for his cause in the archipelago.
