Background:

Talliree doesn’t remember her parents well. The natural inclination of gnomes to forget things so they can view the world through fresh eyes and see things in a new way, and her young age when they disappeared left her memories vague and fragmented.

The pain though, she remembered all too well. She was found by Lamm shortly after she her parents went missing. Promises of a warm bed and a full belly drew her in. She wasn’t particularly quick, but she did find her niche in the small, but growing band of “Lamm’s little lambs.” She could distract marks using magic and her singing. Things were going smoothly for a time. Then Lamm suffered the first of many setbacks in his quest to become one of the lords of the underworld in Korvosa. The wicked young man went to a meeting between several of the more notorious thieves in Korvosa, they laughed at first, but when he refused to leave, they beat him senseless. His wounded ego festered, and he took it out on the small orphans he had lured in. He became a drunk, imbibing cheap ale and wine to forget, and beating his “Lambs” when he couldn’t.

Talliree became a favored target, especially when she started showing sorceress powers. When they helped his schemes, Lamm was almost giddy. When they failed, as they often did, he vented his anger on the gnome. Life got harder and harder for her, and the others. Then by ones and twos, they disappeared, or were found dead from sickness the next morning. Fresh orphans were brought in to replace those that went missing or died. Soon, though, children snatched from their homes, or their mothers in the market began to bolster their numbers.

Talliree was soon the last of the original “Lambs” left. She tried her best to comfort the others, but she found it hard when terror gripped her heart. Finally her magic refused to work at all, and her distractions became less effective. Lamm, drunk and wrathful, took her away from the others one night and beat her until the dawn. He left Talliree in a dark alley, thinking her dead. A varisian couple found the battered gnome and nursed her back to health. They taught her about the Desnan faith. Travel and exploration pulled at the gnome, beckoning her with a siren song, but a darker desire burned in her heart. Revenge against Lamm became her goal. She left Korvosa several times, but found herself coming back every time, her need for vengeance not sated. She took to visiting the Dwarf’s Axe when not roaming the streets or sleeping in her small flat. She listened for rumors, and had just about given up when two strange men came in looking to hire some muscle.
