The Black Alchemist


Piah is a calm old woman with a shaven head. She is never seen without the black ornamental apron that is the mark of her office, usually worn over a simple linen robe.

When not working, she usually fidgets with a small iron knife.


Piah was raised as one of the butcher-alchemists of Dir-Jal, spending her youth working on the living carcass of the Inashi. Today, she is the Black Alchemist, part of the ruling council of the city, and supervisor of the harvest of the monster’s skin, bones and teeth.
