The Elyrian Ventures
Lady Irina Blackthorn
A young girl ruling the region of Blackthorn
When the previous duke of Blackthorn was dying, Irina and Nightshade appeared with an offer of prolonging his life for a few years. The details of the agreement are unknown, but Irina was adopted by the duke and eventually inherited the region of Blackthorn when the old – and aside from Irina, heirless – duke finally passed away.
She has since used her new position to improve the life and welfare of her subjects, especially the poor ones, while maintaining a strict grip on the more unruly nobles of the region.
