Appearance and Personality
She is a good woman, if a bit of a drama queen.
Blushweaver used this incident as an excuse to visit Mercystar with Lightsong. Blushweaver convinced her the attack had been done by an Idrian and join them in “preparing for war”.
Lightsong however was interested on how one person could have made so much “damage” but at the same time tried to kill the least. He went to her palace to ask questions. This seems to have help persuade Mercystar to give Blushweaver control of her Lifeless.
She sent her priests to the King’s palace via the tunnels, which helps Lightsong understand their existence and its importance.
On the night of the Pahn Kahl rebellion, Lightsong and Llarimar entered the tunnel complex under Mercystar's palace, where he stumbled upon Blushweaver being held captive by Pahn Kahl scribes disguised as priests.
