Annette DuRou

Annette was the daughter of Oscal DuRou, a reasonable wealthy noble merchant. After is death when Annette was twenty (by her hand), she took over his empire. She suffered a bizarre twist of fate and was bitten by a were rat. Ironically she has found this has worked to her favor. After commissioning a particularly adept mage who understood her problem make a amulet of shape change control and a hat of disguise. She then began her work as a thief. She did not need to steel much or often. She more frequently used her abilities to spy on her competition. She soon received a offer to work with a group who referred to themselves as the "Masters of the Pit". They offered her even more wealth and power. She decided to join them and has found it very profitable. She so far has been involved in their smuggling and slavery operations. She enjoys the intrigue it brings.

When players meet her she is a charming a fairly beautiful woman. She will treat them very well and may hire them for a mission for her or the Masters of the Pit though she will never tell them that. She will claim to be just a hard working merchant who deals in fine items.

Tactically she rarely leaves human form, only when she is expecting trouble or is on a recon mission. She despises the rat form, and will use the hat of disguise to make herself appear as she usually does when in hybrid form. She uses that form sparingly since if anyone touches her they get a chance to realize it is a facade. In combat she will stick to hybrid shape and use hit and run tactics. Remember she will use the slippers of spider climb to attack from places PC's can't get too. She will attempt to pepper them with poisoned crossbow bolts then run away before they can effectively attack. She is smart and very devious, she prefers others to do her dirty work.
