Chronicles of the Graceful Knight
Duchess Oelestre Xanthippe
Friends in high places
Duchess Oelestre is the head of the Imperial Eye, the intelligence service of Byzantium Secundus. The group met her at a masquerade ball hosted by the Marquessa Lakoya Skareenon Asttanyani, the governess of Byzantium Secundus.
Immediately upon meeting, she and Lady Koralia became fast friends, and have proven several times already that they are willing to help each other in spite of great personal or professional danger, and without any regard for reward or favors. The group is somewhat confused as to the true nature of their relationship. Paxton has even posited that they are lovers, an accusation which Lady Koralia has done nothing to deny: rather, she seems to delight in sending him mixed signals.
