The Scales of War
The daughter of a widowed traveling performer, Aydrin spent most of her childhood wandering with her father’s troupe seeking coin and fame. With his death from illness, the troupe disbanded and she was left to fend for herself at the age of 16. Although a reasonably skilled pickpocket and burglar, Aydrin’s specialty was mingling with the richer merchants and lower nobility, with whom she’d had contact with while working with her father, and relieving them of their valuable trinkets.
Unfortunately, her eye for the ladies has gotten her into trouble and she’s left many a town and manorhouse either one step ahead of an angry father, or in the middle of the night after breaking out of jail.
Recently she was seeing Malia, a maid in the manorhouse of Winterhaven, when her brother Nikos, a carpenter, discovered them.
