With short black hair oiled flat again her scalp, this lean, pale-skinned woman appears ill at first glance. Her brown eyes gleam with an almost unnatural light, and she moves with feline grace.
Loviisa (NE female human fighter 2/rogue 1) is a murderer and kidnapper of the vilest sort. She only goes abroad during the day swathed in a hooded cloak. She is currently making plans to flee the city for pastures new after she killed her latest victim—Aatami Lempo—the young son of Aarto Lempo (LG male human) a merchant of some worth. Aarto paid the ransom, but Loviisa couldn’t be bothered to return his son. His small body was fished from the river a week ago, and she has been hiding ever since.
Personality: Odious and without mercy, Loviisa finds kidnap and murder easy to justify. She enjoys her work. She does not tolerate fools likely and often kills her cronies after a job.
Mannerisms: Loviisa does not blink; her stare is cold and utterly without compassion.
Hook: Seeking to leave the city, Loviisa is attempting to transform her wealth into portable gemstones and the like. She is patronising a store or stall dealing in such items at the same time as the PCs. Her be-cloaked appearance might arouse their suspicions.
