Elegant carefree dancer weaponmaker
Lostris hails from a land far away. (from the continent of Corymb, where Romen & Bem come from)
She is a human, but has the dark skin tones of one of the jade elves. (She comes from the land of Garndon) She has deep bronze skin, copper-coffee hair, & green-brown eyes.
Lostris was a dancer & had adventured in her day, 2 years ago coming to live in the town of Incus. She became good friends with the Princess Aya, & was told much of the royal family (Kalos, Kyanos, the Queen). She did not like the caste system, but loved so much else about Incus as the rest of it really reminded her of home, while providing a distance from many things back on the continent of Corymb.
She fights with two folding fans, a larger blue fan named True Beauty & a smaller red-orange fan named Fatal Grace. She also is something of a martial artist, & she packs a very strong kick.
Bem first encountered Lostris when she was told she may find a bladed fan at the woman’s shop. She sold Bem an obsidian fan with a flute inside, & a deep turquoise fan with a blowgun inside.
Later, when Bem brought Romen here, Lostris made comments about the outside world. Finally they had found someone who knew about things outside this land.
Lostris supplied Bem & Romen with a place to stay the entire time they were in Incus (until Bem went to stay at the hotel before her performance for the Celebration of Fortune & Misfortune at the palace), as well as providing a lot of information regarding the caste system (tharos/tharais), locations, the tunnels, Kalos, etc.
She revealed her plan to leave the city after the celebration of Fortune & Misfortune, & did her best to dissuade Romen from causing a scene at the event.
Things turned out differently, however, when Nitida was killed & Nethys showed up at Lostris’s to inform Romen & Lostris of the urgency they now needed. They ran through the palace, eventually coming upon Bem in a dire condition. Lostris was there when Nethys died, though Lostris herself was also mortally wounded & survived.
She flew with the group (Bem, Romen, Kalos, Nethys’s body) on the three condors back through the jungle, coming with them to see Taita’s people & also to the Ruins of Kho.
She then finished the journey to Pachakal with the group (now without Kalos), meeting again with her friend Princess Aya.
Lostris went with Romen & Bem to the Ruins of Kho yet again, this time to search for Lambanein. It was Lostris who began the assault with Romen on the spider eggs. Lostris later helped Romen & Jerrod lift the dais lid, which was found to contain Lambanein’s corpse.
In the tussle with the living veils, Lostris stayed by Bem, beyond the reach of the rest due to the fire Jerrod had spread behind him in passing.
