"Her name is Tanya; they say she is an Edenian who studied under Shang Tsung," Jade reported to her Queen. She was tall woman, long-legged with dark skin and even darker hair. Dressed in shimmering green, she was often heralded as the great beauty of the court.
"An Edenian?" Queen Sindel was intrigued for the first time in months. She looked away from her golden vanity, keeping her voice low so the gaggle of handmaidens cleaning her vast chambers wouldn't hear. "From what house?"
"If I understand the oral records correctly, her father was the late Ambassador who advised our King," Jade replied.
Sindel turned back to her mirror, applying a light cream to her pale skin. She was a buxom, graying woman of refined beauty, often robed in purple and black. Though not particularly liked by the Outworlders, she was still respected as the Edenian wife of the Kahn.
"What's she like?" the Queen asked.
"We know nothing of her thus far. She was to be betrothed to General Rain, but they say she's been demoted to the status mistress."
Sindel's mood soured. "She probably couldn't stomach being married to such a traitor."
