Advocate, based in Ariel City
Francis Alvere is a middle-aged woman with dark hair, brown eyes, slim build, and classic Asian features. She is brusque, but not rude—a very no-nonsense sort of person who likes to cut to the chase. She always wears a charm bracelet that her grandchildren gave her for Mother’s Day.
Francis was a college classmate of Elias Wingate and has been a friend of his for over thirty years. Occasionally one or the other will refer to their “disastrous” attempt at a date sometime in the distant past.
Francis is the senior partner of Alvere and Associates, based in Ariel City.
