Istrid can also provide hired muscle at a rate of 3 gp per day, per person, and is able to fence stolen goods as well. Her shop is well guarded, with two guards outside, and another six inside. She is a past acquaintance of Everton Gresham, though she has not seen him in 15 years, and he warned Xev not to trust her. She has some involvement in arranging the arena fights staged for the entertainment of Zonthosh, and has direct contact with Otto Steeltoes. For her crimes in associated with the Zonthosh Guild, Istrid was executed.
