Bardic performance: Limning Verse (Su)
At 1st level, the argent voice can sing a song that causes fiends to glow with an aura of silvery light. Outsiders with the evil subtype within 10 feet of the argent voice are affected as per faerie fire. At 4th level and every 4 levels thereafter, the range of this ability increases by 10 feet, to a maximum of 60 feet at 20th level. Any defense that prevents the detection of alignment or evil also prevents limning verse from outlining a creature.

For as long as she can remember, Mirabella's silver voice has been a source of joy, inspiration and hope to those who heard it. Born a slave to a branch of the Aulamaxa family in Westcrown, she used to sing while working to ease the hardship of slave life. One day, a relative from Kintargo named Victoria Aulamaxa visited her masters home and heard her songs. A great patron of the musical arts, Victoria bought Mirabella and brought her back to Kintargo.
At first, Victoria only intended for Mirabella to sing for herself and her household guests, but Mirabella's talent convinced her she could go further. Without children of her own to sponsor, Victoria used her influence to secure Mirabella a part in one of Kintargo's famous operas. As motivation, she granted Mirabella her freedom, on condition that she would give a truly stirring performance on opening night.

Mirabella was trained by the best bards and tutors in Kintargo, and some of them taught her more than just singing. Their training unlocked the magic within her, letting her infuse spellcraft into her lyrics and harmonies. She also spent hours perusing her mistress' library, picking up tidbits of knowledge on a variety of subjects.

Although she was happy in her gilded cage, Mirabella did not forget her family, still slaves in Westcrown. Since she was more or less allowed to roam as she pleased, Mirabella was able to seek out the Bellflower network and work with them to free her family. Her search led her to Laria at the Long Road Coffeehouse.

When Barzillai Thrune took control, he crushed the hopes and dreams of both Mirabella and her mistress. Victoria traveled to Absalom to escape the increasing oppression, leaving Mirabella to her own devices. With the spark of rebellion igniting all over the city and word of new heroes spreads, Mirabella seeks out Laria to see if she can use her talents in the fight.


Mirabella is charming and outgoing, quick to smile and genuinely kind. She truly loves to sing, and although she is aware of the privileged life she has led, she has loved to be able to devote herself to her music.
With the rise of Barzillai Thrune threatening not only her own freedom, but that of the entire city, Mirabella is compelled to act. Her greatest fear is that the cosmopolitan Kintargo will be transformed to the oppressive version of Cheliax she knows from her childhood in Westcrown.

She has no qualms about letting others take the spotlight, and knows that she is no great warrior or hero herself. Her voice is her strength and she is determined to wield it to the best of her ability.
