Victhrae Valshalee, apprentice bard of the House Eilsharn.
A low-ranking daughter in an inferior house, Victhrae was not-entirely-voluntarily thrust upon the bard Phyre'ari for apprenticeship. Vic seethes over the combined humiliation of being removed from her home and mired on the surface world, subservient to a male. Still, she acknowledges him as useful—up until the lessons are over.
Her plans beyond that are vague. She may stay aboveground, where her skills would net her greater profit, rather than return to the Underdark to grapple for power and status with her sisters (who, Vic suspects, manuvered matters so she would be sent away, leaving them with less competition).
