This looks very interesting, lots of Cloak and Dagger to go with the Swords and Sorcery.
But... creating new characters is a pain in the rear, especially since I have one already made - albeit only 1st level at the moment.
So, how about a rogue, a member of the Kingdom's intelligence service? Foreign affairs is possible, but I think her being a member of the Secret Police would work better.
For you consideration:
Belinda was more fortunate than a lot of pretty girls in the slums. She belonged to a gang from a quite young age, acting as runner, spy, gofer. Pretty much a matter of keeping her yes and ears open and not being noticed. She excelled at carrying messages and blending in. then the roof fell in. A gang war, a nasty one and hers lost badly.
So she became a small time operator. Carrying messages, picking up information and delivering word to interested parties, running shell games and the like in local taverns. Posed as a prostitute to scam drunken horny johns out of the money, She was very good at coming up with ways to avoid closing the deal. Sometimes she used an ally to bust things up, sometimes she fast-talked her way out of actually putting out, sometimes the guy was just too drunk (with her subtle help) to rise to the occasion. But she had to seal the deal often enough to know she did not want to do that for a living. She grew up on the streets, she has seen what becomes of old whores. She is an attractive young woman in her own right. Cleaned up, dressed up, made up she becomes truly beautiful. This was a problem: Very dangerous people were noticing her looks, some of them reputed to be slavers. And she noticed them. Then somebody threw her a lifeline.
Well connected, possessed of considerable material esources, ruthless... her new sponsor was exactly what she needed. After proving herself, the mask was dropped...and she was informed that she was working for the crown, a member of the secret police.
But in time of civil war, a nation's intelligence service is as divided as any institution. Who can she trust? She doesn't know. But she knows that sooner rather than laterr she has to choose a side before a side chooses her.
