A barbarian by choice as much as by instinct, Nisia Gbele violently disdains the civilized. She has managed to keep a stranglehold on what passes for power in Vilelock longer than most of her predecessors thanks in part to her unpredictable behavior. This dusky-skinned maniac is impossible to read, and the safest approach when dealing with her is to lead with a punch; some days she will laud a visitor’s fighting spirit, others she will beat him to a pulp for it.
