Shensen is a covert insurgent aiming to overturn the government of Cheliax by working undercover as a Chelish opera performer in the Kintargo Opera House,[1][2] where she was to play the role of Aolar in the opera Huntress of Heroes. She has been missing since agents of House Thrune burned down the Silver Star, her shop and Sarenite shrine, in Kintargo during the Night of Ashes.[3]

She is known to be close friends with Chuko, the tengu owner of the renowned War Cage.[4]


Shensen was born as a drow, and as a young child was brought to the Whisperwood by a band of her kind who perished in battle against a group of adventurers that included a Keleshite druid of Sarenrae named Izorah. Shensen was killed alongside the other drow by Izorah's magical fire, which the druid realized with shame when sorting through the aftermath of the battle. Izorah used her magic to reincarnate the child, who was reborn into the body of an aquatic half-elf. Izorah gave her her current name, and raised her as her daughter.[5]

Shensen lived with Izorah until agents of House Thrune came to the grove where the two lived, petrifying Izorah and carrying away her body while Shensen hid. Shensen took up an adventuring life after this, traveling with a group of adventurers until they were forced to disband following a fire in Egorian. Shensen settled in Kintargo afterwards, becoming a popular singer at the Kintargo Opera House, but retained her opposition to the practices of House Thrune and her Sarenite faith. During her stay in Kintargo, she covertly infiltrated and spied on Chelish noble houses and organizations, served as a leading figure in Kintargo's underground worship of Sarenrae, and engaged regularly in the city's black market.[5]
