Roland "inherited" Lady when her former master was killed. She's been
a regular companion of his ever since. As a result of their travels
she's familiar with a number of Shadow Earth-type shadows, mostly
places with good food or good music. More recently they've spent
time in Amber, and she's learning the ropes of the Eternal City.
Lady is very level-headed. She doesn't think of herself as some sort
of enchanted creature with all sorts of special powers. She sees
herself as an otherwise normal intelligent dog who can talk. She'd
tell that all dogs can scent trouble on the wind, and see glimpses of
the neighboring shadows.
