Telesophia is a character in Bastard's Wound.
A broad-shouldered woman in Disfavored raiment dangles against the nearby column, suspended by her wrists. Though still garbed in the iron breastplate of her unit, she is without helmet and appears unusually at-ease in her compromised position. Telesophia was part of the Disfavored recon team sent to retrace Cairn's steps, until the moment they happened upon the wound. Trespassing in the Oldwalls and consorting with beasts as equals prompted them to attack, with the fight going well until Argen, one of the legionaries, surrendered. When he broke rank, the Disfavored lost their advantage and were defeated in detail, with Telesophia strung up on the pole on orders from Reef-Talon. She was supposed to die of exposure, but Graven Ashe's Aegis reaches far - coupled with her prisoner rations, Telesophia remains in a state of permanent life. While she despises the Wounders on a professional level, she's on good terms with the locals on a personal one, chatting with them and even teaching fishing techniques.
