Curse of the Crimson Throne
Zellara was a Varisian fortune-teller who lived in the Midland district of the Varisian city of Korvosa. She was killed by the criminal Gaedren Lamm when she tried to investigate the disappearance of her son Eran, who had also been killed by the gang leader. In death, her spirit fused with her harrow deck, keeping her locked to the Material Plane until her death could be avenged.
Despite being dead, Zellara remains surprisingly cheerful, often conversing with whoever is currently carrying her harrow deck. Occasionally she will call upon her illusory magic to manifest as a magical image, dispensing advice and guiding her chosen champions through difficult times.
