"Hail and hello. How can this humble Mesmer help you?"

Lady Althea, Post-Searing

After the Searing, this rosy picture was shattered. Though she survived the Searing itself, two years after it, Lady Althea was kidnapped by the Charr, causing her father to lead a desperate, and ultimately unsuccessful, rescue charge into the Breach to locate her. It was later discovered that she was brutally burned alive in the Flame Temple Corridor as a sacrifice to the Charr gods.
