Real World History

Playing around with dragon concepts.

Appearance

Personality

Loves highly detailed, intricate artwork, particularly jewelry, especially if it is enchanted. She has no talent for such work herself, so is somewhat in awe of artisans who can produce it.

Not a fan of the Church of Lothlian

Associations

Cassiadora is a member of House Dallimothan, though not by blood. Several hundred years ago, she married a human (who had himself married into the house), now long dead. Though she is older than Lord Kirstol Dallimothan, the house's current leader, Cassiadora is uninterested in leading the house, and lack of true Dallimothan make her unfit for the job in the eyes of many members. She shares good relations with most of the house members, but interacts with them rarely. She has a special human "identity" for use at House functions (and, indeed, in public in Ptolus) known as Sacrosadia Dallimothan.

She also belongs to the Inverted Pyramid as an adept. Though she applied in human form, her dragon nature has been discovered by many in the group, so she is not entirely trusted. She is tolerated, however, as she has contributed more tomes to the group's library than any other living member. Visits to the Inverted Pyramid usually are made in order to visit the library; however, she also has a hand in the Dreaming Apothecary, often contributing raw materials or spellcasting in exchange for some of the profit.

Using different human forms, Cassiadora has joined a number of organizations, usually to gain access to research or or other assets. Typically, she keeps a low profile in these organizations and is a marginal member of most of them:

  • Banker's Guild
  • Delver's Guild (Guildsman)
  • Ironworker's Guild
  • Jewler's Guild
  • Sage's Guild

Through unofficial, hidden channels, Cassiadora supports the following organizations financially:

  • Brotherhood of Redemption
  • The Malkuth
  • The Temple of Locharit
  • The Temple of Gaen
  • The Temple of Tardeshou
