The Sovereign Pact
Selma took over Councilor Draco’s position on the High Council after his failed attempt on the Sovereign’s life which resulted in both his and Kenji Hlaalu’s death. The uproar against wizards was significant and nearly changed many laws of Albion concerning them. It was in this critical time that Selma came to the Sovereign and the High Council and reasoned that punishing all sorcerers for the actions of one sorcerer was very short sighted. For hours she spoke to them all in the Council Chambers and spoke to the Sovereign privately for hours more. Finally the Sovereign agreed that taking punitive actions would cause more harm than good. The Sovereign’s only condition was that Selma would take Draco’s place on the Council to act as an advisor. Nearly a year later Selma is viewed as a voice of reason or even a “zen master” for her ability to see many angles. This gift has also brought her into the Sovereign’s confidence and inner circle. No one really knows who Selma is or what her true goals are and for this she is seen as a wildcard among all the factions.
