The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Eliza Fathvell - Played By KChan

  • Daughter of Lord Fathvell

  • Age: 19
  • Relationship Status: Courting Caden Hasting
  • Origin: Southern Islands
Character Overview

Born and raised in Tavira, in the Southern Islands, Eliza is a poor fit for the pomp and formality of the Luthadel court. Having grown up wandering the windswept islands, climbing the remnants of pre-Ascension ruins, and playing in the vineyards with her cousin Felix, she simply doesn't do well stuffed in a room and being made to drink tea with women she neither knows nor likes. She would much rather be pursuing the career she left behind in Tavira: as what the Fathvells called their chief liaison, Eliza was in charge of any and all under-the-table deals made with pirate crews and local skaa crime lords.

Understandably, Luthadel has been a bit of an adjustment.

Eliza has recently found herself the object of Colette Hasting's sadistic attentions, and was subsequently approached by Colette's cousin Caden, who was seeking Eliza's help in finding ways to overthrow Colette. Eliza happily agreed, expecting a pleasant and mutually rewarding business arrangement. She was not expecting to fall in love with the man, but by the time she noticed, it was too late.

Notable Quotes

Careful, she reminded herself. Careful. Don't let him provoke you. This needed to be delivered properly, after all. She slowly closed the distance between them, grinning, her eyes gleaming. "Actually," she said, "I wanted to give you something now." Slowly, carefully, she began pulling her glove off as she spoke. "Right. Here. Where everyone can see."

She smiled again, as sweetly as ever, then clenched her fist and brought it up in a flash, aiming to punch him square in the jaw.

"No secrets." Eliza's words seemed to echo through Caden's mind, and he felt a moment of panic. Could he really trust this girl who consorted with pirates, punched lords in their faces, and until recently had been spending an awful lot of time with his cousin? He was shocked to find that his immediate answer was a resounding 'yes'. The woman across from him was so much more than a girl who consorted with pirates, punched lords in their faces, and spent time in Colette's company. She was Eliza, and for some reason, that seemed to be more than enough to make him want to trust her, no matter what his training or instincts had to say on the topic.
