What Luck Betide Us
Duchess Juvela Bassanelli Zivkovic
Duchess Juvela Bassanelli first encountered Bosabrieln, Dareisyn, Desire’lya, and Godfrey in the Emperor’s Gate Inn. When bandits came for her, she explained to the group that she had paid them to escort her. She was evading her husband, Duke Calogero Bassanelli of Duchy Bassano, who wanted her to bear a child. The midwife said the fertility problem lay with him, nor with Juvela, but he was known to have executed his previous wives who could not bear him sons.
She hoped to find someone who could bear a son on the road, and then she could return home and raise the child as the Duke’s.
Bosabrieln agreed to aid her plight, and she accompanied the four with Zealot Shadowhate to the factory. After destroying that place, Bosabrieln, Dareisyn, Desire’lya, and Godfrey escorted her back to Duchy Bassano.
Unfortunately, her story and theirs did not coincide, and after the situation in Bassano reached a boiling point, she was forced to flee with them.
She has not yet started to show, but it is suspected she is carrying Bosabrieln’s child. It is not clear what she will do — perhaps she will return to Duchy Bassano someday and cleanse the place of the cult of Zarus.
