Ucresia, an Etruscan woman with long black hair sits in a dimly lit hut. Poppies tied to the rafters hang down in a single stream of sunlight.

Pronunciation: OO-krays-ee-ah

AKA: Ati

Hair Color: Black

Eye Color: Brown

Motto: Be the good fruit

Desires: For Leures to serve Thesl’s people

Weapon of Choice: Insight


Description: Ati didn’t wake as I put the basket at her bedside and touched her cheek. How drawn and gaunt her face had become. Few shallow creases lined her forehead and the corners of her eyes, and if she were well, her beauty would have rivaled any younger woman’s.
