By most standards this woman is above average in height. Approaching seven feet and heavily muscled, to say she looks used to physical labor would be an understatement. Exceptionally dark skinned, this has not stopped her from receiving a myriad of tattoos. A wide assortment of skulls, knives, lightning bolts, gills and mythological creatures make up the lion's share of designs. These in turn have the additional challenge of competing with scar tissue. While she's not a walking scratchpad, she bears the evidence of either an almost terminally clumsy life or rather just one full of close shaves and misadventures. Her eyes are large, though one looks to have suffered damage and is an unhealthy hue. Her nose is on the broad side as is the width of her usually smiling mouth. Her hair is tied back, braided from the scalp into a collection of dreadlocks.

About her brow, helping to keep errant hair away from her face is a thick headband of mozaic patterns. Protecting her forearms are formed pieces of metal, strapped to her by leather buckles. Her digits are encased in thin cloth strips. All nine of them. About her midsection is a tight shirt of cotton, banded about the waist by a thick leather corset. Below her waist is a set of loose trousers and leather sandals, one of which displays a foot missing a toe. She's usually armed, at times wielding large sledges, scimitars and an intimidating storm pistol.

Public History

-Ruby has been seen in the company of a number of folk from Amber, Rebma and Minos. She spreads herself among those three locales quite a bit. Once upon a time in the employ of Meijanri Kell, she is now the boss of herself. Very recently she's been named Rear Admiral of the South Seas Amber Fleet.
-Ruby has created a personal fleet of ships under the flag Triskelion. Originally conceived as a trade venture, the flotilla now displaces enough tonnage to be a serious entity on the high seas. It is made up of galleons, frigates and ships-of-the-line. Her flagship, The Beast, is renown for many daring exploits in the Golden Circle and beyond. Armed with powerful offensive and defensive stormcraft, it has been in quite a few naval engagements.
-Ruby has created magical tattoos for many customers, some of which are Princes of Amber. She's even managed to create some new unique tattoos.
-In the past she's assisted House Mandrake's in forge work and muscle when their smith was unavailable. She's been rumoured to have completed an apprenticeship under the extremely talented Captain Maereina Midnight. Now she is a fully accomplished Forge Mistress that creates personal and shipboard weapons, the former being personalized to each customer. When the Golden Hunter was finally confronted and brought down, many of the heroes in the battle had god-killing weapons provided by Ruby.
-Perilous journeys into deep shadow are not uncommon, and she always brings a fabulous assortment of skilled PCs along for the ride.
-Most recently is her warnings of a massive Trans-Shadow Conspiracy encroaching on Amber, and her efforts in acquiring skilled and capable PCs to help combat the menace.
