Raffine is the crime-lord and boss of the Obscura family in New Capenna. She is a Sphinx Demon.[1]


She is described as "older than memory," powerful, and mysterious. She operates from the Cloud Spire.[2]


During the city's founding, Raffine joined with the archdemons as the angels fell, and received a number of infernal visions enhanced by her new allies.[2]

The sphinxes of Old Capenna were never many. Territorial and vain, they competed over public acclaim, fear, and devotion, crafting prophetic forecasts to drive the masses to their temples. As a young sphinx, Raffine could count on half a paw the number of her own kind she knew personally: her mother, who cast her out when she could fly; her rival, whose augury contradicted her own as much as Raffine's did hers; and her lover, whose name and face Raffine can no longer remember.

That changed when they came. Raffine's prophecies - which no one wanted to hear, because they were dark and grim and spoke of a shining metal end - were correct. She alone was raised up, granted demonic investiture by an archdemon, and now in New Capenna's art deco grandeur, Raffine is one of the only sphinxes that remains. Good. She likes it that way. Let her "family" serve her, let them inscribe her dreams in ink as they feed her theirs. Let her prophecy dictate the future of the city. At least this time they might listen when she says another end is coming—she dreams of nothing else . . .[3]
