Tactics
Before Combat She is not a fighter. She calls for help at the first hint of danger. When possible, she tries to head off an impending battle by using her social skills or casting charm person.
During Combat She screams for her family, local guards, or anyone in the area who might be able to help her. She uses pyrotechnics to cover an escape attempt and hideous laughter and sleep to disable her opponents.
Morale Time spent gazing into the great beyond has left her with a certain calmness about death. However, she has no wish to die just yet and tries everything at her disposal to flee when in danger. She bargains her services or possessions for her life but dies rather than betray her family.
