Adventure Guide

Among the first to give themselves over to the Heartsbane, these siblings have each mastered their own specialized form of magic. Now they seek to obtain greater power through wielding their focusing iris.


Whichever Sister has Focusing Iris gains energy, and when they reach their maximum, they cast Dire Ritual. Inflicting enough damage makes a sister drop the iris, and another sister will pick it up.

  • The Triad is likely inspired by the three Graeae (or the Grey Sisters) of Greek mythology, who shared one eye between them. The hero Perseus stole their eye and ransomed it for information on their sister, the Gorgon Medusa.
