Personality

Biography

Background

"The Search For Grog" (Sx42)

Lieve'tel volunteered to accompany Vox Machina in their search for Grog's soul when they came looking for aid in Vasselheim, hoping to repay the debt that the Raven Queen owed them for their efforts against Vecna. Though initially treated with disdain by Keyleth for believing she was being condescending and reminding her of Vax'ildan, Lieve'tel proved her usefulness as they ventured through the plane of Pandemonium. Lieve'tel suggested to Bertrand Bell that "[this adventure] can only end in romance"[6] between them. She was briefly killed in the fight against the Empyrean.

"The Search For Bob" (Sx45)

Lieve'tel's body was carried into Scanlan's mansion, and she was resurrected by Pike. However, this required that Pike and Keyleth search for any missing pieces of her body, and for Vex to sacrifice her wedding ring for the diamond component of the spell. She spent that night teaching Bertrand "the wisdom of the ages".

She continued on with Vox Machina through Pandemonium, and called upon the Raven Queen to aid them. Though the others retrieved their stolen belongings, the bone of Purvan she carried was left behind.

Upon returning to Whitestone, she asked if she could remain with Vox Machina for a time before returning to Vasselheim. She then communed with the Raven Queen, asking if Vox Machina would be safe for now, and if Vex and Keyleth would be happy. She then ran after Bertrand, but not before Percy invited her to dinner with the rest of the party later that day. Her statue was included with those of Vox Machina made by Shanak in Whitestone.

Relationships

Bertrand Bell

Lieve'tel showed little interest in Bertrand before teasingly flirting with him and saying that she needed the entertainment. Upon being resurrected, she dragged Bertrand by the beard to her room for the night. After Bertrand left the party in Whitestone, she expressed some interest in tracking him down, though it's not known if this went anywhere afterward.

Lieve'tel's name was the last word Bertrand spoke when he was fatally stabbed in Jrusar more than three decades later.[7]

Vex'ahlia

Lieve'tel reminds Vex of her brother in both looks and some mannerisms. She sparked an emotional reaction in Vex by petting and praising Trinket in a much similar manner to Vax. Lieve'tel takes a particular interest in caring for Vex, in part to honor Vax. She casts death ward on Vex twice and asks that Vex stay close to her in Pandemonium. Lieve'tel shares with Vex that she is also from Syngorn and spotted Vex and Vax at the Raven Queen's temple once in Vasselheim. Vex seems somewhat pained by her presence but respects Lieve'tel enough to sacrifice her wedding ring to resurrect her. Vex encourages Lieve'tel to stay in Whitestone after their adventure.

Keyleth

Lieve'tel's presence reminds Keyleth of Vax, much like it does for Vex. However, Keyleth shows much more anger and resentment toward Lieve'tel due to this painful reminder. Keyleth initially tried to find someone else to replace Lieve'tel in their group but found no other volunteers. When Lieve'tel tries to offer Keyleth comfort, Keyleth bitterly tells her not to talk about how painful loss is again. Despite Keyleth's resentment towards Lieve'tel and the Raven Queen, she does assist Pike in assembling the lost pieces of Lieve'tel's corpse.

Appearances and mentions

Quotations

Trivia

  • As noted by the players, Lieve'tel has several traits in common with Vax.
  • Lieve'tel may be considered the fourth player character to replace one who had been killed or temporarily retired, following Taryon Darrington and Caduceus Clay.
  • A fan theory states that Lieve'tel's name is a wordplay for the phrase "live and tell". According to that, her name would be yet another reference to the situation of Vox Machina after Vax's death.
    • There's also some irony in it, since Lieve'tel died in her first adventure with the group, only being able to live and tell because she was brought back by Scanlan.
  • Grog's name for Lieve'tel ("Le'Veon Bell") is the name of the running back for the Kansas City Chiefs American football team.
    • Bell is also the surname of Travis' own (temporary) replacement character Bertrand Bell, with whom Lieve'tel had an intimate encounter.
