Here is Rosalia Savory, whose family was in no way part of a Robin-Hood like bandit gang in the drier and more remote areas of Risur, and absolutely did not move to Flint and change identities to escape a royal crackdown on them. She grew up among the dockers of Flint, got into music, and found out she had a knack for child detective shenanigans. When she grew up she figured she might as well get paid for the detective stuff and maybe try to help her community with the weight of a badge behind her. Her style and political stance are somewhat at odds with the traditional image of an RHC constable but you can't argue with the results of the magic mind-reading entrance exam!

Rosalia's stage name is "Little Lamp" and she still performs in her spare time.
