Lady Lucia Thione-Hhune was a female human who went on to become a member of the Shield Council of the Knights of the Shield, due in part to her being the wife of Inselm Hhune, the Duke of Kamlann and the First Lord of the Shield.
Description[edit | edit source]
Activities[edit | edit source]
In addition to being duchess-consort of Kamlann, Lucia was one of eight Councilors of the city of Zazesspur, representing the Ships District (though her manor was in the Garden District). In this role, she bore a strong influence on politics in the city. She was also second-in-command of the Shippers' Guild of Zazesspur.
History[edit | edit source]
Lucia was a distant cousin of the Tethyrian royal family and was very young when she entered the Knights of the Shield. Lucia had been a long-time resident of Waterdeep and joined the Shield Council of the Knights of the Shield when she convinced that group that she was a Masked Lord of that city. She was expelled from the Shield Council after the Harper Danilo Thann and the rogue elf Elaith Craulnober foiled her attempt to overthrow the Lords of Waterdeep in 1364 DR and her lie about her status was discovered.
She managed to regain some respect among her fellow Knights and, for political reasons, decided to marry Inselm Hhune in 1369 DR. By 1372 DR, her husband had allowed her to take back her lost seat on the Shield Council; Inselm, however, appointed her not for love or duty but only because he thought that Lucia would easily accept the faith of Gargauth and help him in his crusade.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Lucia for her part had never loved Inselm, and the only reason for their marriage was her chance to become a duchess of Tethyr and regain her lost status within the Knights' ranks. Her husband was under no illusions in regard to his wife's motivations either, and neither expected the other to remain faithful.
