Ideals

  • Hates to repeat a con, she’s easily bored and likes devising new swindles.
  • Likes to steal from ‘those who can afford it’ – particularly elven nobility

Flaws

  • Constantly in debt, has a weakness for pretty things and can’t help spending any money earned on new baubles and clothes.
  • Can’t resist a pretty face – easily distracted
  • Likes a challenge, if presented with an interesting puzzle finds it hard to resist even if she thinks it might get her into trouble.
  • Similarly finds it hard to resist the opportunity to try to get one over on someone ‘who deserves it’
Bio:

I am going to tweak this to be a little more story like but for now bullets should contain the main points.

  • Parents: mother – human actress, Vannozza diCantucci, father – elven minor scion of House Elgerianor, Cardinale Angael Elgerianor.
  • Given an elven first name by her smitten mother – refuses to use it.
  • After the death of her mother, when she was 10, raised and trained within the Teatro Sul Fiume (Theatre on the River) the third largest theatre in the city of Catarina.
  • Has a personal grievance against House Elgerianor for her father’s abandonment of her mother.
  • Was involved romantically with Svalbard the Barred Bard Barbarian during which time she
    was asked by House Faron to get Svalbard to throw the fight – he refused and she neglected to mention this and bet on him and made a lot of money – had to leave quickly afterwards, he has managed to retain good ties. Svalbard and Cici didn’t talk after this and only work together at the Thieves’ Guild reluctantly.
  • Briefly worked with Luca Adessi in a relatively low level con on the cities gaming houses. Parted ways partly because Cici got bored with running the same con, ‘draping’ isn’t that much of a challenge.
  • Like to use identities and ruses to trick her way into the lives of her marks make her money. Fan of the long con.
  • Has a false identity as, Vana Silivren a minor cousin from House Silivren, their position within the city is insignificant enough to allow her to blend in and not attract the wrong notice but still allow access to the upper echelons of society.
