Mistress Valora is a character from the Black Carnival series.
Valora is half Harpy-half Siren. The Siren half of her makes her gorgeous and elegant, while the Harpy half of her makes her vicious and unforgiving. She is the Head of Customer Services and Satisfaction of the Black Carnival, which includes the Carnival entrance. Her responsibilities include keeping the customers happy and ensuring they’re properly acclimated for the sights they are soon to see. In the darker shade of her job, she is in charge of ‘correction’ and ‘rehabilitation’ of rowdy customers and disturbers of the peace. Valora runs majority of her operations from the Carnival brothel that she owns, The Howling Siren. From there she commands a lethal flock of Harpies, Sirens, and Succubi. She runs the brothel with her reanimated deceased sister, Delilah, and her head of security, Marraine.
Valora will go to great lengths to find the people who cross her. She is a mother eagle, who watches her nest with lethal intention.
