113 Sonia

A bewitchingly beautiful woman who manipulates the “Black Fang” to her heart’s content.
     A dark sage who pledges allegiance to Nergal. Following Nergal’s orders, she infiltrated the Black Fang and seduced the chief Brendan with her beauty –making him her slave –reducing the “Black Fang” to nothing more than pawns for the sake of Nergal’s ambitions.
In truth, she is a morph created by Nergal’s hand just like Ephidel, however, she truly believes herself to be human.

Estimated Age—————————Unknown

     She does not have a shred of affection for Nino –a child from a previous marriage, nor for her husband Brendan. She is completely reliant and devoted to Nergal, and only seeks his approval.
     Brendan’s sons as well as senior Black Fang members suspected the second wife, Sonia, of withering down her husband in order to manipulate them as she pleased. The fact she killed Nino’s real parents, as well as her connection to Nergal, was revealed in the Water Temple.
