Arithne was the Court Scribe of Shard during the time of Xerasyth's experiments on the Eleven Races. She was kidnapped and held hostage after Vigther was captured (the first time). The people of Shard did not give up Vigther for her return, but she was eventually rescued. After that ordeal, she was not seen again until being re-introduced as Tribune Thariis' assistant on July 1, 2010.
In September of 2010, during the conclusion of the events surrounding Vorasus in Ilithi before his imprisonment in the Red Buzzard Dungeon, Arithne was exposed as being corrupted with Arcane energy and the stain of death associated with Necromancy. She immediately fled the city under the cover of an invasion by Vorasus' Inquisitors, and was chased by members of the Ilithi Militia as far as Mer'Kresh before the trail was lost. Her current status and whereabouts are unknown. It is believed that she was the source of corruption in the Great Tower which Vorasus spoke of, and that her discovery thwarted a plot involving the poisoning of Tribune Thariis and some forged documents obscuring the delivery of suspicious shipments.
You see Scribe Arithne, an Elothean Bard.
Arithne has tilted almond-shaped milky blue eyes. Her platinum hair is very long and wavy, and is worn tied back. She has pale skin.
She appears to be an adult.
She is in good shape.
She is holding a large tome in her right hand and a bluish-grey heron feather quill with a metal tip in her left.
She is wearing some dainty grey felt slippers, a dove-grey silk pouch with a silver lyre clasp, a matte silver pick worked with a Bardic Spirit Knot, a layered shadowy black Elothean silk robe over thick matte grey brocade and a dove-grey spidersilk knapsack with silk cording.
She claims to have a sister who is a Trader. This person was known in the past for their abrasive personality and unpleasant demeanor.
