"Shattered Steel", a short story by F. Wesley Schneider, was released as Pathfinder Tales web fiction in September 2012 and as a consolidated ebook in October 2013.

An unlikely vigilante slips through the alleys of Old Korvosa, the armor of the insidious Gray Maidens—former stormtroopers of an insane queen—imprisoning her within a past she can neither forget nor atone for. But when an innocent comes to her in need, this mercenary avenger must test her mettle against a foe just as resolute and merciless as she once was.

"Shattered Steel" features the following characters:

Kelles Vel is never mentioned by name within this story, but the description of the narrator-protagonist completely fits with the details known about Miss Vel found in Curse of the Lady's Light.[1] Therefore, we have assumed, until proven incorrect, that this is the case.


The events of "Shattered Steel" take place after those in the Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path.[2]
