Kira Toravain

Derek Reed

A very small and slightly-built young woman with classically Melnibonéan features, long, flowing dark hair and piercingly clear grey eyes, which she outlines in black makeup to enhance their unsettling effect. Her demon of protection takes the form of a wide, flowing purple cloak, and she disdains more conventional armour completely. Contrasting with this is her massive two-handed sword, sorcerously treated to inflict massively crushing blows while being light enough for her to use easily.

She dislikes men, tolerating Melnibonéan men as long as they don't come too close but - since her exile - utterly despising human men wherever she finds them. She chooses to envision Straasha the Lord of Water Elementals as a woman, for example.
