Shiv managed to extend her natural dexterous ability early in her career when she “acquired” a ring from a trade gone bad in the city of Hohm. The ring granted her a wish, and her unnatural dexterity is the result. Shiv remains pleasant and charming, even amid extortion, murder, or tense negotiations. She is a master of deception and charm no matter how dirty the job at hand is.
Among the guild masters, she is highly respected and feared. The Council of Dwarfhome only allows her in the mountain because she has information on most of the council members.
She exchanges her name for something more appealing among aristocrats when working the upper-crust of society. She usually opts for “Shiveala”. It is unclear what her first name actually is, even among her own guild members.
Shiv maintains a small set of heavily trapped and guarded secret tunnels in Dwarfhome and an “Accounting House” in the city of Hohm. The accounting house is her preferred home, and it is connected to many sub-city passages and tunnels.
