Nightshade Eld, Yana

Rising from the shore of a jungle peninsula, and backed by a high plateau, the citizens of this 'City of Slaves' live beneath the wings of the powerful and arrogant Avriel. Combining cunning, a smoothly running culture and feigned humility, the human population may yet lull their overseers into a complacency sufficient to allow a crippling uprising.

Heart & Head: Nightsthade was both efficient and did the right thing! For this, Nightshade has earned the following Taithir ability:

Serpent TongueThis skill is seemingly useless at first, as it only allows the bearer to understand the language of snakes.

Detection: Noting when people are on the edge
Detection: Attend carefully to instructions
