Nysina Issidra was a Nalfein elf and eventual leader of an organization known as Shades of the Rose.
You see Nysina Issidra.
She appears to be a Nalfein Elf.
She is very tall and appears to be an adult. She has dark-rimmed lilac eyes and lightly bronzed skin. She has very long, thick sterling blonde hair woven into a wrist-thick herringbone braid that is bound with a glossy onyx band. She has an oval face and high, sculpted cheekbones.
She has a trio of rolaren rings set along the slender tips of her pointed ears.
She is in good shape.
She is wearing a slender ebony suede harness with an onyx-hued sephwir long bow secured to it, a deeply hooded charcoal grey shroud, some fitted ebony rolaren-scaled brigandine, a simple oval black ora locket, a fitted cinereal marbrinus shirt, a petite rose-crested signet of silver and onyx, a cord-secured thigh quiver, a low-slung black leather belt, a pair of deep grey leather pants, and some padded ebon suede knee boots.
Nysina traveled to Wehnimer's Landing in the company of a group of exiled Nalfein led by Zyndur. After Zyndur became obsessed with the Star of Khar'ta, Nysina took command of the group which was now known at Shades of the Rose. She captained an airship around the same time, which ferried adventurers between Wehnimer's Landing and the Wyrdeep Forest.
[Black Veniom Airship]
Austere veniom walls rise from a glossy ebonwood floor to an arching ceiling overhead, black in hue and flecked with hints of silver. Warped domes of glass in varying sizes trail in lines from the floor upward, and they whorl with an argent incandescence that bathes the ship's interior. Off to one side are a pair of sliding doors opposite a curtained archway, all guarded by darkly garbed figures, while at the heart of the space is an oval ebonwood table and a number of cushioned chairs. You also see some silver coins, a wide veniom gangplank and a small note.
