Both tall and thin, the singer’s face is hidden behind her long hair. Graceful when moving, she stands very still as she sings laments for lost loves and songs of mourning. She arrived by ship in Corinth a few months ago. The sailor who brought her said she bought her passage at Olynthus but didn’t talk on the two week journey south. Her songs have haunted the public spaces and symposia of the polis since she arrived, earning her great wealth and accolade. A group of thugs that tried to attack her were found the next morning deaf and unable to remember their names. Her plan is use her magic and her voice to bring misery to Corinth.
