X is for Xanthe

Xanthe is the most dangerous spy ever to pose as a barmaid.

She was formally trained as a hypnotist in a traveling Gypsy caravan. She found it was a great way to get secrets from people without them knowing. She also found she could sense those who could use magic. She used this information in her next career.

As a charlatan, she ingratiated herself with those who used magic AND those who despised magic users. Many "cleansings" by fervent Sigmarites owe Xanthe for her inside information.

As a spy she runs one of the largest information networks in Nuln. And she does it all while under cover as a barmaid in the Mad Goat tavern.
