"It is said that Irogenia of Lys could finish a man with nothing but her eyes... Kings traveled across the world for a night with Irogenia. Magisters sold their palaces. Khals burned her enemies just to have her for a few hours. They say a thousand men proposed to her and she refused them all."
―Doreah[src]

Irogenia of Lys was a famous courtesan from the pleasure-houses of the Free City of Lys.
