Rowena Plutherer worked for the council.
Rowena lived with her mother before her death, after which she lived alone. She frequently attended auctions and lost bidding wars to Bilis Manger. She conspired with a friend to distract Bilis during one auction, allowing her to buy a girondelle mirror. She refused to sell the mirror to him, who told her of its history.
She became aware of a doppelgänger of herself. She was snatched by Bilis before the double drowned her and was placed on a train in a time loop, thwarting the Committee's plan to replace her, Zoe Blake and Piers Meadows with doubles. Bilis left both her and Piers there as they lacked the manners that Zoe had. (AUDIO: Dead Man's Switch)
