The Desire appears to be a young woman in her mid to late 20s, even though she is an elder (250 years) of the dance macabre.

* Justice drives her every action, from the moment she was wronged as a young girl in a nobles employ.

**Yes, it would be a given that the madame of a brothel would be lustful…but it’s not all about sex. She also lusts after power, hence her extensive network acting as spies for her.

***Her network is made up of whores, pimps and all the people who make up the seedier side society.

For reviews on the pdf go check out Gnome Stew, d20 Source, Alltern8, Uncle Bear and The Examiner. For another workshop take a look at  The Core MechanicSea of Stars and Sycarion Diversions.
