A bright woman, Alysande Benedict would gain the nickname "Lady Liberty" and become one of Andoran's most beloved heroes.1

Personal history

Born in Augustana in the year 4606 AR, Alysande abandoned an apprenticeship as a scribe before the age of twenty-one. She began writing political essays on virtue and the value of hard work.1

Political history

Collaborating with great minds, sharing knowledge with them and the planting the seeds of diplomacy, Alysande attacked the House Thrune in Cheliax . After witnessing the violence in the Red Revolution of Galt, she strove to convince the Andoran people to use less violent methods in their own revolution, The People's Revolt. During the revolt, she continued to write pamphlets and do diplomatic work to create a more peaceful solution. Shortly after her death in 4690 AR, one of her students collected her diaries, journals and inventions together into a book titled Tales of Lady Liberty.1

Military history

As an alternate identity, Alysande magically disguised herself as a soldier named "Captain Hawk", leading raids against the Old Guard. She led attacks to prevent ships with reinforcements for the Old Guard from getting to them on time, which allowed the Old Guard to be defeated in the battle of Freeman's Field in 4677 AR. A month later, she lost a leg in the victory at Bemis Heights.1


Her fans have erected a statue in her honor on Benedict's Hope, a small island in Almas' harbor, while another memorial to her alter ego exists on the battlefield on which she was wounded.12
