Sette Frummagem is a short, barefoot young girl hailing from the city of New Tawhoque, in Sharteshane. Her most remarkable features are a lengthy tail and a mouthful of inhumanly sharp teeth. Currently Sette is traveling with a wright named Duane, engaged in a mission to investigate her cousin Stockyard's failure to pay a debt to her father. Antics with a group of slavers and a pair of Crescian Peaceguard seem to have slightly derailed her goals.
Motherless, Sette lives with her father, head of the criminal Frummagem family, Nary-A-Care Frummagem. Along with her paternal grandmother, uncles, cousins, and an assortment of cutthroats, thieves, and con-men, Sette calls home a sprawling underground complex near the New Tawhoque waterfront, crowned by an enormous seedy pub called the Midnight Cricket. All members of the family are required to pay a weekly sum - called jukrum - to Nary, and Sette is not excluded. To meet her obligations she's become a talented pick-pocket, burglar, and confidence trickster.
But her future need not be bleak. Sette believes if she can prove herself indispensable and trustworthy, she may one day have the running of the family herself. As Nary's only daughter, inheritance of the organisation falls to her, even if her unnatural features call the legitimacy of her birth into question. This mission for her Da will seal her future with the family.
Sette boasts a heightened sense of smell, one that extends even to the olfactory discernment of pymary and spellwork. She's also an excellent thief and acrobat, and has proven herself more than capable in a fight, despite her small stature.
One ability that Sette keenly lacks is literacy. She can neither read nor write, though her mental arithmetic skills well suit one so miserly.
Sette's been shown to conceal her tail when in uncertain company though when strangers do manage a glimpse of it they seem largely unconcerned. Most assume it an unreal, glamoured accessory.
