Delilah is an Ergothian woman approaching middle age. Her black hair is streaked with gray and a fine network of wrinkles around her eyes gives her a wizened and curious expression. People often remark how alike Delilah and her owl appear to be.


Delilah knows many secrets and has an air of mystery about her. She has the ability to use her cards to foretell the fortunes of those who come to see her. She charges 10 steel pieces for a ten minute reading; but will consent to longer readings at an additional 10 steel pieces per ten minutes. She always has incense burning in her tent; the better to enhance her aura of mystery. Delilah does not deceive those that come to see her. She is bluntly honest in her readings. If she does not know or cannot see the answer in her cards, she will tell the querant so and refund any monies paid. It is a matter of pride that she holds to the highest standard of honesty. This does not stop those who do not like her predictions from claiming she lied. She does not hold this against the querent but will not long abide being called a liar before showing the person making insinuations against her honesty the door. She also brews and sells a small number of potions and magic candles.


Delilah hails from Northern Ergoth; though she no longer calls that land home. In her youth it was discovered that she had "the sight"; the ability to see the future. As a child she was always talking to unseen others and made predictions about this or that event; many of which proved to be true. This unsettled her parents who were prominent members of the village. They were unsure how to handle their daughter and so consulted the village wise woman. This wise woman, Lillith Gillari took Delilah under her wing and taught her how to control the ability to see images of far of places and the future by focusing it through the Talis deck. As she became more proficient in the use of the cards her parents decided her talent was vogue and frequently forced her to do readings for their party guests; most of which who called her a liar when she saw something they didn't like. One night nearly 20 years ago, after such a spectacle she left everything behind and hopped a ship to the mainland. She has never looked back.
