The Winter Witch
The leader of Cardinal Thorn’s 7th Knot, Elise is cunning and cruel. Her group backed the Ninth Knot as they dispatched soldiers in Balentyne and as they performed the ritual to summon Vetra-Kali in the Horn of Abaddon over many months.
She was in a relationship with the Smiling Saboteur, inciting jealousy from Trak who out of respect and loyalty did nothing about it.
Out of greed and frustration, she orchestrated a plan with the Smiling Saboteur to sabotage the Ninth Knot’s operation. Giving insider intel to the Verdant Banner as they prepared to raid the Horn. They failed, and Kirune and Snekman of the Ninth Knot confronted her party.
Elise was shot and killed by Snekman who bounced a bullet off a plate that he shot into the air over a wall of ice, hitting her right in the heart.
