Curse of the Crimson Throne
Queen Ileosa Arabasti
Young Ruler of Korvosa
Queen Ileosa is a woman of breathtaking beauty, with red hair like the sunset, chaste alabaster skin, and features so fetching many claimed her mother must have been a nymph queen, as surely no mortal woman could give birth to a beauty such as she.
Whispers of Eodred II’s taste for scandalously young companionship have dogged the king throughout his rule, and thus when he finally wed, it was no surprise that his bride was barely a third of his age. Barely 17 years old when she took Eodred II’s side in 4704 ar, Queen Ileosa has managed a minor miracle in the past 4 years—she’s single-handedly shifted the dislike and disapproval away from King Eodred to herself with her open distaste for Korvosa (a city she’s been heard to call “a backwater colonial village” more than once).
Most of Korvosa’s nobles worry of the dangers of placing a trophy wife within hands’ reach of the Crimson Throne, but Ileosa’s interest in the city seemed secondary to the life of luxury—and with the more-than-competent Seneschal Neolandus Kalepopolis guarding Castle Korvosa’s interests, these noble families feel they have little to worry about. That was, until King Eodred II died and Neolandus perished in the resulting chaos.
The Queen seems to be holding her own however, as she swiftly sought aid against the riots by sending the PCs to aid the Korvosan Guard, as well as seeking the aid of Plague Doctors during the spread of Blood Veil. It is also said that she is close to revealing the new Castle Seneschal and her plans to rebuild the city.
