Crystal Rose

Crystal's head is spinning.

Crystal was sold to the Guild with her half-sisters, Culet and Citrine, at the age of four. She was raised at a secret slave citadel which raises the Guild's most promising concubines, well away from the eyes and ears of those who would make off with them. Outside of the occasional merchant prince, it wasn't until that fateful journey that she even met a man who wasn't a eunuch.

She was doomed to be reduced to a mindless husk, through horrors unimaginable. If that were too dignified, she was then to be sold, to thoughtlessly abase herself until there was nothing left of her physical self, either. There was nothing she could do about it - her mind and skills were meager at best, and she had no inkling of the arts of war. Like most of those who survived that trip, she wasn't even let in on Alabaster's plan.

She cried out to any god who would listen, for someone or something to aid them. When the fighting began, it gave her hope, foolish and simple though it was, that her prayers were answered. She despaired at the might of the Fair Folk, toying with their prey rather than slaughtering them as they were clearly able. So she cried out again.

The Unconquered Sun listened, and gave her Alabaster.

Of course she knows about the Anathema, and that many would call Alabaster one of them. But she's seen monsters in human skin before, and though the Zenith is driven and sometimes cruel, he is also just.

The constant training and drilling frequently boggles her. At eighteen, she is more skilled than most mortals five times her age could ever hope to be. Her body and mind are so thoroughly infused with Alabaster's training Charms that she has a difficult time remembering just what she is capable of. She certainly doesn't look half as strong - or as sturdy - as she actually is. Like her half-sisters, her training with Zen is currently on hiatus until she has attained a higher mastery of the Martial Arts.

Crystal is quick to disabuse others of the notion that she is Exalted. Not everyone believes her, however, and this has not always worked to her advantage. Unless working with one of Alabaster's circle directly, she makes sure she has no less than a fang of bodyguards with her (see henchmen).

Crystal's current duties primarily involve rooting out slavers within and near the city proper.

While her full name is 'Crystal Rose', she usually just goes by the name Crystal.
