The Enemy Within
Gravin Clothilde von Alptraum
Minor aristocrat of Averland
Clothilde is bright, cultured, curious, and down to earth. She often wears her hair up, piled high and held in place by a wrought-iron tiara decorated with owl feathers and the Imperial cross.
Clothilde von Alptraum owns a small estate in Averland and an impressive townhouse within Averheim. Her business interests have earned her many friends amongst the merchants of the city, her birth gives her recognition amongst the nobility, and a brief and unremarkable term of service with the Pistolkorps has given her contacts in the military as well.
Von Alptraum has a reputation for giving generously to causes she deems worthy. She has made sizable (and quite public) donations to the cults of Sigmar, Shallya, and Verena, in Averheim. She allows the local academic community (The Sun Society) to meet in one of her taverns and even occasionally attends their meetings, making her a sort of silent patron to all the scholars in the city. She has even funded major trade missions and expeditions to far-off points around the globe.
