Every demon prince has a few resources they like to keep on the down low. Vashni is one of Lilith’s.
For centuries Vashni was one of Mammon’s demons of deceptive contracts – until she got caught (or was framed for) letting some of her targets go free and lying about it. Not many people know the specifics and Vashni has absolutely no desire to talk about what she did or who she was at the time.
Now Vashni specializes in getting Lilith’s most favored daughters out of bad contracts and dangerous geases. It’s not the sort of thing that Lilim are supposed to be able to do, and if word got out it could cause the Sisters some real headaches.
Vashni has found that life as a private investigator gives her just the right amount of freedom to snoop about while still keeping her grounded within the Symphony. She likes to wear an attractive female vessel, power suits, long coats, and a signature green brocade corset. However, for under cover work she’ll sometimes pull out the schlubby old vessel she used while working for Mammon. Humans find it much less noticeable, though it will occasionally catch the eye of the very infernals she’d least like to see.
Vashni, Lilim of Freedom
NOTE: Vashni resonates like a Balseraph, she gains dissonance whenever she lies, fails to collect on a debt, or observes herself in a Celestial Form resembling anything other than a Lilim. Vashni also observes Lilith’s Rites and Dissonance conditions.

Vashni’s Soul Shaper (5 CP)
Vashni’s green corset was a “gift” for services rendered. Lilith is aware of what it is and how it functions, and has bound Vashni to secrecy. Donning the corset requires one hour time and a successful Precision roll. Succeed or fail, the person in the corset will take CD body hits for the attempt.
By spending an extra 2 essence upon entering Celestial Form, the wearer may attempt a Celestial Forces roll enhanced by the CD from their previously successful Precision roll (only someone aware of the function of the Soul Shaper may attempt this roll). The times when the corset is active are the only times that Vashni can observe her Celestial Form without suffering dissonance. When observed in Celestial Form without the shaper, Vashni can be mistaken for a Balseraph.
