“Nightblades are spellcasters who use their magics to enhance mobility, concealment, and stealthy close combat. They have a sinister reputation, since many nightblades are thieves, enforcers, assassins, or covert agents.” – Nightblade description from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Just Steen doing a bit of field work. She has a very particular set of talents.
I also recently started imagining that Steen calls everybody “hinny” like the tod in Richard Adams’ “Plague Dogs.” Like calling everybody “sweety” or “honey.” It just makes her seem particularly roguish.
I guess it is a good thing that Steen doesn’t have any problems fulfilling her duties, then! Although honestly, as a low-born nightblade, I’m sure Steen is no stranger to “quiet work.” Indeed, I’m pretty sure that particular work experience is why Master Aryon hired her in the firstplace. And boy does Aryon put it to use. A lot.
