Head of the House of Sighs and mistress to Conte Marco Bernoulli, Veronica Barbaro is one of the foremost courtesans of the age. She has published one book of poetry, invested well in the lace-trade, and even fought and won a duel defending her own honor.
Many do not know her humble origins, but she has a long history with Don Angelo “Due Pistole” Zanzigo. At times they have worked together, yet always to their own ends. She has bet that he can not fit into society well enough to not cause disruption during her party. He will owe her ostentatious gems, delivered to her home if he loses. Otherwise, she will provide an introduction for him.
In her childhood, she was known as Bidi.
