Wasp Queens

Main Page >> Factions >> Wasp Queens

Few of the groups that gather under the banner of a god do so with less organization or order than those who come to Calistria. The Wasp Queens are an elite society of female thieves – exclusively elves and half-elves — who follow the teachings of Calistria, particularly those related to trickery and revenge. They are for hire for any number of activities, but the ones that excite them the most are the jobs that people say are impossible. They have broken into the most secure vaults of Abadar’s temples, have lifted enormous amounts of coin from the banks of Absalom, and are even said to have stolen the scepter of Queen Abrogail of Cheliax herself and sold it back to her for an exorbitant sum (though this last may be one of the many grandiose fictions surrounding the group). They are enormous braggarts, exaggerating their trophies and their conquests, and always willing to lend a perfectly shaped ear to a good pitch for a job or a potentially lucrative sob story.

They travel all across Avistan, always eventually returning to the elven homeland of Kyonin with their ill-gotten gains — though it’s said they spend most before they ever reach home. They’re currently under the command of Arala Insifaal, a sultry half-elf who nurses a grudge visible from across the room. It is to this mysterious figure that hopeful members must apply, knowing that to fail the nigh-impossible admissions tests is inevitably fatal. The group is constantly torn by petty rivalries, past slights, and plots against each other, but they unify against outside threats — which is to say, anyone outside their group.
