芬斯威克公国Principality of Fenswick
A newer principality, Fenswick remains quite small. In fact, it cannot even boast a town or village of enough size to place on the map. For now, this realm consists of extremely small communities of shepherds and goat herders. Princess Dolores Hills- bury claims she desires a large, populous principality someday, but actually she has no care for personal power. Dolores really Synn, a night dragon—maneuvered her enfeoffment to get a seat on the Council of Princes. In this way, she can further her true goal: spreading chaos and darkness throughout Glantri.
Ruler: Princess Dolores Hillsbury.
House Personalities: None.
Allies: Innocenti di Malapietra, only survivor of House Sirecchia; Houses of Ritterburg and Kol.
Foes: Houses of Marais and Sylaire; Clan of Ellerovyn.
Voting Power: 12 at the council, 12 at Parliament.
The people of Fenswick seem relatively ignorant of their ruler's identity or disposition. In fact, Dolores spends so little time on her own principality's administration, the peasants only barely realize she exists. The late Lady Margaret Hillsbury, whom Dolores falsely claims as her mother, was an iron-fisted ruler, so the people of Fenswick actually appreciate being ignored for now. After all, nothing changed for them when their tiny duchy became a principality, so why should they care chat they've never heard of the woman now their princess?
The people of Fenswick work either as herders or river fishermen, although a few grow potatoes and various other tubers. Folks here appear slightly wealthier than many in other principalities, if for no other reason than their close proximity to the capital and the ease with which they can ship goods to market there.
For being the ruler of such a small and insignificant region, Dolores wields a great deal of political power. She has seduced Jaggarvon Drachettfels, placing House Ritterburg firmly in her grasp. The charmed and mentally unstable Innoccnti di Malapietra serves her as well. Kol XIV knows Dolores for what she really is, but realizes that his own power increases if she succeeds in her plans. In fact, he owes his appointment to princedom to her manipulations of the council.
Prince Malachie du Marais (page 56) has recently learned, through a spy, of Dolores’s draconic nature. A werewolf himself, he knows that exposing her would not do enough to foil whatever evil plans she harbors. For now, Malachie waits to discover more, opposing Dolores whenever he can.
Malachie’s ally, House Sylaire, became an enemy of House Hillsbury when the princess's supporter Henri d'Ambreville was killed by Isidore, his sister-in-law. Isidore, current ruler of Nouvelle Averoigne, and her husband, Richard, realize the wisdom of opposing anyone once closely aligned with the evil Henri. Their close friend Malachie has revealed enough to confirm their suspicions.
Princess Carlotina and the elves of Rrewan blame Dolores, correctly, for their current position of disfavor with the rest of the Council of Princes. Dolores hates the fair elves and wishes them destroyed or driven out of Glantri.
德洛丽丝·希尔斯伯里女亲王Princess Dolores Hillsbury
Princess of Fenswick, Treasurer of the Council of Princes
The lords of the Sphere of Entropy (Immortals dedicated to spreading chaos and darkness) saw in Glantri the potential of establishing a firm foothold in the Known World. They decided that Glantri, already teetering on the brink of chaos, could be manipulated into complete disorder. For this purpose, they summoned one of their faithful servants, queen of the creatures called night dragons. Her name was Synn.
An incredibly powerful creature, Synn can change her shape into that of a human at will. For her, infiltrating Glantrian nobility proved simple. She claimed to be the illegitimate daughter of Prince Volospin of Blackhill (who died when the meteor obliterated his principality) and Lady Margaret Hillsbury. Many nobles knew of their actual affair, and when Synn killed Margaret, no one alive could dispute her story.
Calling herself Dolores Hillsbury, Synn proclaimed (truthfully) that a dragon killed Margaret. Before the realm ceased its mourning, “Dolores” marched into Glantri City with a number of retainers and a dead dragon, claiming to have avenged her mother's death. Her tale accepted, she quickly was granted princess status and her supposed father’s seat on the council.
Even today, Synn continues her masquerade as Dolores to manipulate the council. Her actions are rendering Glantri a dark, monster-ridden realm of chaos. The next step of her plan involves eliminating her enemies: Prince Malachie, Princess Isidore, and Princess Carlotina.
It is interesting to note that Dolores has not yet uncovered the secret of the Radiance, even though her supposed mother knew its secrets quite well. (Ironically, much of her information on the Radiance lies hidden within Fenswick Keep. Dolores has never bothered to search the place, as she spends so little time there). Should she uncover its powers, she will become even more dangerous.
Personality: Synn is a completely evil creature of chaos who will let nothing stand in the way of her plans.
What She Says: My fellow council members, I know that I am just fortunate to hold this chair. I also know that I should leave the important decisions to those of you that have been ruling well for so long. But if I could just bend your ear for a moment...
What Others Say: Dolores has breathed new life into Glantri. Her wisdom and charm are bringing the principalities into a brighter and more glorious future. (Prince Jaggar)
Appearance: Dolores has long, straight black hair. Her dark eyes contrast with her pale skin. The tall and slender woman dresses in long, black gotons when possible, substituting stylish hunting garments when traveling.
With scales of deepest black, Synn's night dragon body measures 90 feet in length and sports a tail of at least 110 feet more.
Using Dolores: Consider Synn one of the primary forces of evil in Glantri, a greater threat even than Morphail or Brannart. Uncovering her nature and plots could become a major focus of a Glantrian campaign. In such a situation, Prince Malachie and Princess Isidore would ally with the PCs, but the princess could manipulate Jaggar, Kol, and others into opposing them.
Combat: Although she normally pretends to be much less powerful than she is, a true threat will cause Dolores (or Synn) to unleash all her magical might. Rather than die, she will reveal her draconic form, but she almost always has a number of defensive spells, such as counterspell immunity and armor, cast for protection.
