Gypsy was a travelling minstrel. When she was exiled, she was allowed to bring a guitar with her that she had spent a year making. She became famous in the early years of Avernum, travelling from town to town with her songs.
When Upper Avernum was colonized, Gypsy managed to secure a position building Fort Emergence, and then snuck out to the surface. She spent the remainder of her days travelling around Valorim, continuing to spread her music.
