Skellan's Enemy Within
Gravin Clothilde von Alptraum
Member of one of Averland’s pre–eminent noble families
Clothilde is a vision of radiant beauty in her late twenties. She has an attractive and friendly face, a curvaceous hourglass figure (rendered even more so by her well–tailored corsets and bustle) and long golden hair often piled high and held in place by a wrought–iron tiara decorated with owl feathers and the Imperial cross. Clothilde is bright, cultured, curious and down to earth.
Gravin Clothilde is a minor member of one of Averland’s pre–eminent noble families, the von Alptraums. Unusually for a woman of her birth, standing, and age, she is unmarried, and holds her title in her own right, not through a husband. Like Graf Friedrich, Clothilde von Alptraum wields political influence outside the scope of what would be expected of her birth and status, but in Clothilde’s case this is due to her extensive familial and social connections, charm, and easy wit rather than her money. She has been subjected to many, many proposals of marriage, all of which she has skillfully evaded. Amongst her suitors have been both Graf Friedrich von Kaufman and Theodosious von Tuchtenhagen.
Mortelis Bloodbough has sworn himself to her service.
