Age of Worms
“Can't a woman make an honest living?”
Luzane inherited her mines and proud legacy from her mother, but both have begun to falter in the past decade. She suffered her first public humiliation when she was forced discharge her house staff. Soon after she bitterly sold the family home and lands to Balabar Smenk, who boorishly courted her despite her married status. Luzane’s husband died under mysterious circumstances two years ago, prompting Luzane into a political alliance with Gelch Tilgast against Balabar’s scheming. She has been involved with Chaum Gansworth of late, possibly seeking to sway him to her side with romance, where business considerations have failed. She hopes one of these relationships will save her from Smenk’s disgusting advances.
