Old Earrings/ Nadeesha/
The Leech




A doctor specializing in diseases of the rich. Often employs Masha as a mid-wife.

A fifty year old thin man with hair that began at about the midpoint atop his skull and dangled stingily in long ugly strands of corpse-grey. He wears elaborate earrings.

Stealth /

Stepson, Scared Bander and Bandaran Adept


Young, bearded Scared Bander and Bandaran Adept particularly skilled in mental and martial disciplines. Once a captive of Roxane and Datan on Wizardwall, Niko seemed to stumble from trouble to trouble.

Stealth, called Nikodemos, had come out of Azehur, where he'd earned his war name and worked his way towards Syr in search of a Trôs horse via Mygdonia, hiring on as a caravan guard and general roustabout where a dispute over a consignment lost to mountain bandits had made him bond-servant for a year to a Nisibisi mage - Roxane's lover-lord and thus giving her a string on him.

Rebelís Arenít Born in Palaces [Bk6]

Night Work [Bk12]


Commander of Imperial bodyguard Rankan

One of the imperial bodyguards sent from Ranke to escort the Prince who dropped a scroll giving instructions to assassinate the new Governor. The scroll (and the plot) was discovered and he was executed.

Nizharu also turned out to be one of the men who had destroyed Holt and raped and mutilated Jarveena - she got her revenge by translating the scroll.

He was as fair a man: his hair like washed wool, his eyes like chips of summer sky. Under a nose keen as a bird's beak, his thin lips framed well-kept teeth marred by a chip off the right upper front molar. He was lean and obviously very strong, for he was turning over a chest that must weigh a hundred pounds and his biceps were scarcely bulging.

Sentences of Death [Bk1]


Noblewoman Beysib

Lives in one of uptown's most elegant mansions. Moria was sent to her by Ischade to deliver a letter and "connections".

A small woman with a wasp waist, a plethora of jewelry and blond curls and a painted face.
