The nun dies very messily, leaving behind a bloody pulp on the cobblestone where her head used to rest.
"We should really be off the streets by the time the guard arrives."
Zilla invites you into her humble abode - a single room with very little furniture but for a large bed, a fire place that serves double purpose as a cooking niche, and a make-up table with a large mirror. After having pushed the furniture as good as possible (and Zilla also hastily throwing a cloth over what appears to be a pagan altar in one of the corners of the room) and offering you the bed to sit on, it is still barely possible to fit all 12 of you in. The hostess opens a closet door to provide more room to lean in, revealing a large collection of racy clothes and lingerie. She turns a bit red as she sees your looks and explains: "I earn my living as a burlesque dancer at The Naughty Nymph. I would rather do anything else, really, but it is not as if a sullied woman like me has much choice in this town. At least I haven't yet stooped down to do, uhm, that, although the Red Guard is leaning on me to do some more than dancing if my tips continue not keeping up with my debt..."
Fuyuko gets visibly interested at the mention of 'dancing' and 'tips'.
"Bureseku? Is that a local dance? Can you teach me it, and does this Nochi Nimya have open spots for performers?"
Zilla looks very surprised.
"That is something you better talk to me about another time when there isn't a guard patrol about to arrive.
Speaking of which, I should better tell you what I know while we have yet the time to. Tanya's father is Baron Csanad Hieronymus Friedrich von Szepreszyl. He tricked me into sharing my bed with him through a private marriage and the promise to marry me properly later, only to leave me back with a broken reputation and little Tanya. Later people of the Church took Tanya away from me because they considered me a bad influence, and some anonymous benefactor left them a sizeable donation to enroll Tanya as a novice nun. I don't have proof, but I can only think of one man who would have the means and the motive to force my baby girl to swear off all earthly ties and possessions...
Now, for hints...
We got married by an old eremite called Father Szandor residing in the Tiefling cave, nearby to Teufelsgrossmutter peak. I don't know if he still lives there, or if he lives at all yet as he was already quite old, but he should be able to testify the marriage ceremony if you can find him. Or have some way to make his dead cold body talk.
My good friend Nadja Ovlova has been my bridesmaid at the ceremony. Sadly she died three years later, having fallen down the dry well shaft in Chandler Street nearby to St. Nephemias' cemetery in Cathedral Ward. Foul play could never be proven, as the body couldn't be recovered. Or maybe the Blue Guard simply was too lazy and cowardly to risk climbing down, useless fair weather guard afraid to sully their polished boots that they are.
The Baron had also given me a golden seal ring of House Szepreszyl as marriage ring. Around the same time that I was expecting Tanya's birth, a masked man with a club forced his way into my house and forced me to give it to him. I think that man has been Ottmar the Brute, a locally well-known thug, but it is not like I had any witnesses at that time to confirm what I have seen. Nor have I alerted the Red Guard - knowing them, they would have seized the ring for themselves and then gone on to accuse me of and fine me for theft to drive me deeper into their debt."
