River District Refugee
Arveene is one of a small group of refugees from the River District who are now squatting in the ruins of the old House of Knowledge. They’ve earned their keep by ringing the temple’s bells when they sight a new wave of monstrosities spilling from the Chasm towards the Wall. Some of the Mintarn mercenaries leave them small gifts of food and drink to show their appreciation.
According to Hargul Half-Elf, Arveene and her fellows are not simple refugees, but Ashmadai. They hate the Abolethic Sovereignty because people should be slaves to Asmodeus, not monstrosities from the Far Realm, and so they have dedicated themselves to the fight to drive them out of Neverwinter.
