These two girls wander from town to town, searching for work and odd jobs. They’re both first-rate talented sorceresses, and use their magic for whatever people will hire them to do — most people run in terror when they see these sphinx monsters, but some are just desperate enough to hire them: They like money, and they like mischief, and they like making money by making mischief. Someday, they’ll find the sorcerer who cursed them to become half sphinx, and he’ll pay dearly — but there’s no hurry. In the interim, there’s plenty of fun to be had as mercenaries, and scaring people in every town they visit.
This is Lisette. She came from a merchant family, and was magically talented even as a little girl, so they shipped her off to magical boarding school, and after gaining an apprenticeship she never went home again. She’s more of a troublemaker than her friend, and she’s reminding you that her eyes are up here.
