Description: An artful chronicler and freelance investigator for the Korranberg Chronicle, Fherina Arvindi writes and sells sensationalist stories for a living. Like most gnomes of Zilargo, she craves information and the secrets of those around her. She has chosen Fairhaven for its political intrigue, its obsession with arcane and higher learning, and its centralized commerce among the Five Nations. Assuming the penname Fherina Heartsvale, Investigative Chronicler, she is often found poking around both the University of Wynarn and the Chalice Center, seeking inspiration for the perfect story.
