The Bridge Company
Miska and Shenna of Down Street Apothecary
Down Street Apothecary: This business is a squat, green-stoned building with several chimneys (decorated with mephits) that are often pouring out smoke in a variety of unusual colors and smells. Both magical and non-magical remedies, as well as a variety of recreational drugs are available here. The business is owned and operated by a yuan-ti couple, Miska (pureblood) and Shenna (half-blood). Miska (a dark-eyed, impassive woman) seems to take care of most of the work of the business—both preparing the compounds for sale and operating the store itself. Shenna dabbles in sculpture (her art is displayed in the storefront) but is a hypochondriac; it is not uncommon to hear Shenna calling Miska away from the storefront for help with some task or another. Both women are members of the Bleak Cabal; the symbol of the Bleakers is displayed prominently on their sign. They are both known to attend parties at the Lazz School of Vivid Unpleasantness and are active members of the Bleaknik movement; there are often after-parties and jam sessions held in the back room.
