Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
NPC – Retameron Halia
Lady Halia Antonic of Verge
Halia Antonic (Female Thyatian Wizard 9)
Title: Landed Lady of Verge, Professor of the Magician’s Guild of Specularum
AC 974 – Born in Specularum, Karameikos
AC 992 – Age 18 – Adventuring over Known World.
AC 1000 – Age 26 (M7) – Magicians’ Guild
AC 1005 – Age 31 (Wiz8)

Halia’s parents are of a minor branch of the Vorloi clan. Eighth child of the family, Halia ran away from home to avoid being traded away in a marriage of convenience. Over the last eight years, she has adventured all over the continent, always returning to the city of her birth, Specularum. Gradually, she centered her adventuring around the city, became an important figure in the Magicians’ Guild of Specularum, married her co-adventurer Retameron, and moved to his home, the small village of Verge, near Threshold.
Halia has a short temper and a long memory. She doesn’t take a back seat to other adventurers (including her husband) and suggesting that she should keep her opinions to herself is a sure way to provoke an outburst. However, she is generous and intelligent, a good friend to have in a bad situation, and a loyal ally. Her hobbies include research into magic and old legends.
Halia is 4’7″ and 135 pounds. Her hair is red, worn long and usually braided; her eyes are blue. She is 26. She usually wears Thyatian dress – the materials varying with the circumstances (silk for society affairs, linen for home life, heavy linen with woolen cloaks for travelling) – often in green hues; she wears her rank mark for the Specularum Magicians’ Guild on a golden brooch.

DMing Notes: Halia and her husband are helpful allies for mid-level characters to have in the Threshold area. They are good friends of Aleena and Sherlane and staunch supporters of the Duke. They’ll shelter travelling characters caught by darkness short of reaching Threshold; they’ll lend their advice and expertise where they may; they’ll even accompany characters (those on Expert-level and above adventures) on particularly important adventures.
