The Queen of the Outlands, especially Quettil and Kathkar.
Sorcha Tez has never lived with her older half-sister Lira but she has lived with their mutual father, Starwan Tez, the great warrior and general of the armies of Vishandria. He was charmed by Sorcha’s mother, Chal’Kacha’Wae, if you listen to the scuttlebutt in Vishandria. She came to the capital city once to meet her sister and the court. Lira was very cordial but Sorcha wanted more recognition than was politically possible for a slave keeping, thuggish city like Quettil.
