Bio:

Courtesans come in two ‘flavors’ with similar skills. They are either ‘Working Women’ or ‘Concubines’, both need the same skills to succeed and both are usually ‘sold’ into their positions. In fact many ‘Working Women’ aspire to become concubines. Concubines themselves are heavily competitive among themselves and with the wife. Men can have multiple ‘wives’, but only one is actually called that. The rest are concubines. However a concubine can become the ‘wife’ at the husbands desire.

Skills in music, singing, poetry, and dance are the means of attracting attention, though they are not the performers that a true entertainer is expected to be. The best mix their skills so that they can manipulate men.
