About Madam Zabeth Skoata
Zabeth (born Mim) grew up in Metrol, the capital of Cyre. She was a child of the streets who was usually wise and quick enough to avoid the worst repercussions those of her kind faced just trying to survive. There was one time she was not.
Mim had become fascinated by an extravagant woman - a fortune teller named Madam Zabeth. She was enamored by the woman's style and manner, and longed to know her own future, but she did not have the coin for a reading. She stole, was chased and caught just outside the Madam's tent. Madam Zabeth heard, and lied that Mim was a niece and paid off the offended. The two grew close, and after many years when Madam Zabeth passed, Mim took her visage, name, and manner... as well as her trade.
Mim (now Madame Zabeth) then traveled, and was not in Cyre when it fell. After the Last War she moved to Breland, and took up her trade - mostly for travelers and adventurers - in the Deathsgate district of Sharn.
Most recently she got the bug for adventuring.. having been recruited for a mission to Mournland which quickly ended with the death or grievous wounding of all but herself. Her thirst for adventure was left piqued but unrequited.
Personality and Appearance:
Zabeth is warm and matronly, and has a dramatic theatrical demeanor. She is the type to remind one of their manners with a pleasant voice, calm expression, and a knife to the belly.
Though in her mid-twenties, Zabeth's preferred form looks to be about forty. She wears flowing silks of red, black, and silver over her mithral chain shirt and leathers. Her jewelry is ostentatious.. necklace of large beads, several gaudy rings on each hand, and silver bracelets on each wrist. She walks with a cane topped with a silver bird. A dark blue yellow-beaked pot-bellied thrush is never far from her.
