"I shall meet with Hroi, who gives Lirorn his due. He will explain to those druids what is expected of them in such matters. I shall dine with them in their longhouse and put them at ease. Its so much easier if I give the old men a pretty smile and let Hroi do the heavy lifting."
"Kanslern, you are wise in this as in all things. Give your man this cloak of night. It will conceal him well in the shadows and darkness that will welcome him on his mission. Cuthwin will regret he ever harbored such ambitions."
"The skalds are pretty story-tellers, my dear, but come now, who but children really believe all of that nonsense about honor and sacrifice. Do you sell your life cheaply for a principle no one gives a thought to but some poets?"
Dagmar is the daughter of Arngeir Crecentheart, a druid of Lirorn who was highly respected in the Oaken Grove. Her devotion to the night took a turn towards the Sister of Thieves at some point, but she always gave Lirorn a full measure of devotion. Many druids continue to suppose she is a druid of Lirorn, and indeed she knows his teachings and can recite his prayers. But it is not the Silver Prince who grants Dagmar her spells. She holds a position in the temple of the Oaken Grove by virtue of her supposed druidical training, and uses it to keep the Grove quiet.
Her strategy in the temples has been to seek the promotion of druids who are indifferent to the aristocratic values and either could care less about the political situation or prefer to see farms and mills fall dormant and nature recover those lands. She is also responsible for the elevation of druids of Lirorn, since they make excellent intermediaries between she and the druids. Though her policies are too far out of the mainstream of the Grove to hold any offices in the temple, she is Fulgar's Steward (Starfsmaðr), and uses that office to manipulate the Oaken Grove. She dresses in the robes of Lirorn, performs the rituals of Lirorn and earns no disfavor from the Moon God for her deception. She insures the protection of Lirorn's sacred places, the source manifestations, and supports the war against the Shadow. Recently she has begun to have a greater effect in the politics of the circle in Yvarre where she has made a few speeches of late. Trust and confidence in her has begun to grow in that influential circle, though a few are still are suspicious of her. She slowly extends her influence in Yvarre and may have plans to broaden her power in the Oaken Grove. She has sufficient spells in the animal sphere to create the appearance of an animal companion, a raven she calls Lirna. She was taught the druid's secret language by her father, who died thinking that his daughter had taken up the druidical devotions of Lirorn. Learning this secret language was a deception only a priestess of Eloéle could have pulled off.
Dagmar is aware of the presence of another great priest of Eloéle, but does not know his identity. He maintains an envoy in her court, and they keep in touch this way. The two have not had the occasion to cooperate too much, but they have helped one another eliminate enemies from time to time. Both Dagmar and her mysterious ally have allied organizations they can recruit aid from to send to the other for assistance. Dagmar has sent assassins, spies, and rogues borrowed from Kanslern Gunnar the knife's men on the most secret missions for her ally, and he has sent similar men from the Northern Reformed Church of Sarimie. With these new contacts, Dagmar has proved valuable by encouraging a trade route between Rjuvik and the Northlands Exchange in Dhoesone.
