Lady Julie Belrose
More likely to be described as cold rather than beautiful, Lady Julie has a reputation for being old-fashioned, with a sharp temper and an acerbic wit that serves her well at court. She makes much of her money from the trading empire she controls, with little in the way of land, having had to sell most of it to cover her father’s gambling debts. Among the merchants who work for her, it is whispered that they would rather face another Blight than cross Lady Julie when her temper is roused. Many of the practically-enslaved servants who work for her were once merchants themselves who failed to pay their debts on time.
