Deviless. Mother of Lord Nesth Eirich. Frontierswoman and former stockbroker of the soul trade. Published a series of books on revisionist grammar, societal scandal, and semaphore. Was exiled to an underground colony, where she fell in love with one of the earliest vampires and bore a son by him. She raised this son well on her strict etiquette and love of books. The husband was hunted down and killed for causing a social stir; wife and son learned their lesson. Shaken from the occurrence, the two faded into quotidian society for centuries. Though her son's job as university librarian eventually netted him a reputation as a legendary Archivist, Griselda lives a quieter life as a live-in tutor, preparing children in matters grammatical, legal, decorous, and economic.
