Dyrianna of House Avenstar, Head Hetaera of Calistria and Consul of the Courtesan's Guild, is the ranking sacred prostitute and manager of the Pleasure Salon of Calistria in the Ascendant Court district of Absalom. Twenty years ago, a priest of the temple bought the beautiful half-elf out of slavery in a sin pit in the Coins. Since then, she was adopted into House Avenstar, gained control of the temple prostitutes and the entire temple of Calistria, and bought a controlling interest in the city's Courtesan's Guild, which regulates paid companions who are not stage performers nor streetwalkers. Through the personnel of the salon, she controls an extensive spy network, which provides information she is discreetly willing to offer to the highest bidder. Chelish, and increasingly Qadiraan, houses have long paid extensive contracts for her services.
