 Here's a little preview of the main character of my short story To Catch the Lightning, which I'm hoping will appear soon in Armoured Fox Press' Swordmasters anthology.

This entry was originally posted on my Patreon page. Please consider supporting me there to see this and other fiction and RPG posts at least 30 days in advance of the public.

Background: Becca Blacksailor is a Swordmaster, a highly trained Service caste foxen, serving the Countess Longlake, a prominent member of the Mother Country Council of Countesses. Not quite a soldier, Becca serves as Longlake's personal agent, intervening where her countess sends her. Sometimes that means intervening in conflicts between Longlake's vassal Ladies, sometimes that means being her Countess' bodyguard while traveling, and sometimes that means illegally entering the MC's rival Gerwart on cover ops missions.
 

Becca is aware that as a Swordmaster, her profession is being increasingly viewed as an anachronism with the growth of gunpowder weapons. Nevertheless she takes pride in her work, though as she begins to age, she finds herself increasingly looking forward to more assignments in her home district, rather than sneaking about Gerwart ports counting ships and stealing plans.

She also happens to be Alinadar Blacksailor's direct ancestor, though Ali is unaware of this during the course of The Red Vixen Adventures.
