"Let us dance, you and I."
-Thelestes, the Velvet Blade
History[edit | edit source]
The embodiment of murder and death, Thelestes serves the prakhutu Kashtarhak, the Voice of Chaos. Murder is Thelestes' personal joy, and she prefers to kill more frequently than her service to The Lords of Dust sometimes permits. She may lend her skills to aid in the schemes of other councilors on the Bleak Council.
A master of disguise and seduction, Thelestes has many aliases placed deep within House Phiarlan, House Thuranni, and a number of smaller thieves guilds. She spends her time as an agent of The Lords of Dust, reveling in playing a part in the corruption and death of the mortals around her.
Appearance & Personality[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Like other succubi, Thelestes can drain the life from her victims, and enjoys doing so. She has the magical abilities to charm others, to polymorph herself into various forms, and to teleport. Like other demons, she can speak in tongues.
Unlike other succubi that can summon other demons, Thelestes cannot. Instead, she has the ability to summon weapons by her side. She prefers to fight with a chain that she summons to her person.
