That the infernals have their hooks deep in mortal affairs is demonstrated by their subversion of one of the Khadoran Empire’s highest-ranking nobles. Great Princess Regna Gravnoy has earned respect as the ruler of Gorzytska Volozk through her proven intelligence, political acumen, and undeniable ruthlessness. She has also been, for most of her life, a secret infernalist.

Calling herself the White Queen, she anticipates ruling whatever remains of the frozen north.
