Venomess Echo slots
The Venomess is a deadly spy from the Maze, and her poisons have changed the course of history. But the Gloom has swallowed both the Maze and the Empire, and her secret war is over. Ven’s a survivor, and for now the Seekers are the only game in town.
Before the Fall, the name Venomess was feared among the Imperial ranks. Those unfortunate enough to have put the face to the name, seldom survived. Venomess is a spy and assassin from a nation of monsters, born of cold and poisonous blood. In her time, she’s broken into so-called impenetrable vaults, stolen secrets from the Avar Throne itself, and brought down more Archon Commanders and master spellsmiths with her toxins than entire regiments by compare.
Ven was born in the Maze. Her closest friends are goblins and battle-beasts, and though she looks human, appearances, like most things when it comes to Ven, can be deceiving. A brilliant alchemist and inventor, Venomess has always preferred stalking prey in the shadows to mixing salves in a workshop. Most of all, Ven craves a challenge—and the Gloom is the greatest challenge of all.
Vemomess believes the Avar Imperium was an oppressive, warmongering regime and devoted her life to toppling it. Now the Empire has finally fallen, consumed by the Gloom… But all she hoped to protect in the Maze has been lost as well. Ven may not care for Wingrave or the other Imperial soldiers among the Seekers, but she recognizes that her cold war is over. In the wake of the Gloomfall, survival is the only thing that matters—and Venomess intends to survive. No matter the cost.
