Known Information

Emmanuelle Shahrizai nó Mandrake is the former Dowayne of Mandrake House on Mont Nuit, a scion of Kushiel, and a half-sister of the Lady of Marsilikos. She retired from Naamah's service in the year 1310 and returned to the home of her childhood, for reasons she has not chosen to speak of publicly.


Emmanuelle was a child made for love’s sake by the previous Lady of Marsilikos, Lorianne Mereliot, and her Shahrizai consort whose passion was to introduce that city to the sharper pleasures. If ever she had a place in the succession of her mother’s duchy it was purely notional: there was only one proper sphere for a little girl who displayed such a preternatural talent for making little boys cry. And so Emmanuelle Mereliot became Emmanuelle Shahrizai.
