If Goliard filia Flumen is not the leader of Blackthorn covenant, then the members are engaged in an elaborate facade to make people think she is. She looks to be in her early forties, her brown hair streaked with grey. Her eyes are slightly bloodshot. It is generally believed that she is trying to re-establish the glory days of Blackthorn, although she has not done anything too overt or shocking. Any magi who want to deal with Blackthorn normally find themselves talking to Goliard. She is an effective negotiator, and is quite keen to forge relationships with other covenants, although many are wary of getting entangled with Blackthorn.
