Orielle Bladeworthy is a human paladin who is the Duchess of Glasjenfrei. She had been prevented from assuming the throne due to an obscure point of law concerning a specific rod of rulership. Her consort, Marqvilla (note that Orielle is openly lesbian), traveled to Melvaunt to get help and eventually attracted the attention of Les Cinq. Les Cinq retrieved the rod from a white dragon, Hinterbite (and his many offspring), and installed Orielle as Duchess.
Later, Orielle contacted Les Cinq to inform them of a mysterious mushroom cloud and magical attacks on both the city and the local jotnar tribes. The gods themselves are at risk. Les Cinq have come to her aid yet again.
