The Woodlands Scales of War
Troyas' trusted bodyguard and assistant. Human; stern, dutiful.
Tall and somewhat striking. Looks fierce and actually rather threatening. Keeps her dark hair kept up in a short ponytail (for practical reasons), consistently has a determined expression, as though whatever she is doing is the most important thing in the world, no matter how mundane.
Real world analogue: Michelle Forbes as Helena Cain (or Ensign Ro Laren).
Alys has been Troyas’ most trusted bodyguard since even before his appointment to the council. Though not as trusting or open as he is (and by god is that not saying much), she nevertheless trusts his judgment implicitly.
