Olisara Lightsong (O-lee-sar-ah Light-song): female moon elf, Harper, faction representative to the Moonsea region. Dry sense of humor and likes to disconcert others by displaying how much she knows about them
Rundown: Description: Olisara Lightsong is a pale-skinned moon elven woman with white hair and piercing, blue eyes. Clad in a fetching dress cut in the Cormyrian style Character History: She was born in Waymoot in Cormyr where my parents owned a bakery for a time that supplied bread to The Moon and Stars. As I suppose it was at that inn that where Olisara developed a love of listening to stories. Character Traits: Ideal Bond Flaw
Olisara is a high ranking agent of Harper, although she only hints at the authority she commands. Her long, white hair, pale skin contrast with her piercing blue eyes. Her demeanor is direct, her sense of humor is dry, and she displays an almost disconcerting amount of knowledge regarding those with whom she holds audience. She uses this to bend them to her agenda.
The Moonsea region provides two particular opportunities for the Harpers, both due in part to the region's wild and dangerous past. There are ruins, lost items of power and historical significance, and some unusual sources of magical power. As the faction contact in this region it is my hope that my agents explore, catalogue and gather as many of these secrets as is possible. We need to rediscover and understand these many mysteries so that we can decide how to best use them to aid the people and not to be used against them. Second, the area is rife with unstable governments and oppression. The common folk need heroes, and my agents are just that. We stand up for those that need us, and stand against those that would force their will upon others. Unlike some of the other factions, we are less likely to use direct force, and more likely to listen and watch so that we might apply just the right amount pressure to direct events.

Olisara was born in Waymoot in Cormyr where her parents owned a bakery for a time that supplied bread to The Moon and Stars. It was at that inn that Olisara developed a love of listening to stories. Travelers from distant lands were always stopping by and telling tales of their travels. The girl could sit for hours, listening to their exciting stories and marveling at their strange appearances. Ever since The Moon and Stars appeared in a Volo’s Guide, it has only become busier. It’s always been a center for clandestine meetings and for all manner of strange folk to rest and mingle. Olisara wanted to be a part of those adventures.

“As for the Harpers, we simply wish to gather and preserve knowledge in all its forms, and free people from tyrants in-so-doing.”
