Heroes of Hillsfar
Joyella is a female gnome and Zhentarim agent who very much takes to heart their edict to gain personal power and influence. She associates with some nasty people, but can hold her own and even influence them. She’s not above using blackmail or threats to get what she wants.
Recently during a trip into the Underdark, the greedy adventurers Joyellawas with decided to attack a drow caravan. She was against the action, as it seemed too risky, but the others would not be swayed. The attack failed, and everyone in the party was killed except Joyella who made her escape before the last two adventurers fell. However a bounty was put on her head, and she was tracked and caught by two duergar bounty hunters. The bounty hunters were also tracking another prey, a renegade drow named Azziz. When they found him on the surface, they also found Azziz being protected by Cundall, Marie, Minimus and Zelda. The bounty hunters were defeated and Joyella freed.
