Sanami Vibato was a sharp Elf, but not sharp enough for the Morag Tong
Before her end, she got her foot wet and expelled from House Hlallu. She cleared the trivial entry tasks with smooth talking and a touch of her natural wit. Unfortunately she didn't realize she was ripping off a fellow house member while trying to help a cheap-ass Redoran smith in Vivec (really...a fire bite axe?). She went to the stars disgraced from what little family she knew.
After slaying two Dark Brothers with little hassle she felt she could handle the responsibility of the Morag Tong. Alas, Feruren Oran, her initiation contract was not a freebie.
