The daughter of the Mayor of Listergard and perhaps also a necromancer?
Vanessa is red-haired and overly thin. She was last seen wearing a dark grey long dress and a dull red leather chest piece.
Vanessa is the allegedly missing daughter of the Mayor of Listergard. However when the group encountered her she did not appear to be a damsel in distress but rather the one in control. She seems able to wield powerful divine spells such as Hold Person, Command, and Charm Person.
The group was barely able to drive her off and when they did Mad Harold the Ghoul said he was finally free of her influence.
