Drow Advisor to the King
Maelzera is the king’s main advisor. She is naturally more comfortable in the castle, and indeed has built up its dungeons, than outside. Maelzera is shrewd and thoughtful. She owes her citizenship to the King, and has no obvious interest in direct rule. She does occasionally visit the knights, or summon them to her, to discuss their futures. It is likely she sees herself as counselor to the next king.
