Exalted: Tales of the Dreaming Sea
Queen of the Court of Secrets
The great water dragon Tenepeshu serves as the queen of the Court of Secrets: those gods who deal in secrets, mysteries and enigmas. Long ago she blanketed the city of Champoor under a veil of night to conceal the activity of the court from the eyes of Heaven. Under her leadership the Court of Secrets has become quite corrupt, meddling in mortal affairs more and more regularly. While not openly ruling Champoor, the Court holds enough power there that they are accepted as its secret rules, exactly as Tenepeshu wants it.
As one would expect, Tenepeshu’s motives are scarcely known. While once accepted as a Celestial Censor she has, in relatively recent history, turned her back on the Celestial Bureaucracy believing it no less corrupt that many spirits courts in Creation have become. Tenepeshu has no fear of the chosen but does respect them and give them their due. So long as they stay out of her affairs, that is.
