Grandmother (also Grandma, Grandmama) of would-be Storm Kings. She rides herd on Houses Sturmvoraus and von Blitzengaard (not to mention the Storm King Conspiracy) and is also the superior of the whole order of the Smoke Knights, or at least Violetta's branch of that organization. As Violetta claims cousinhood with Tarvek Sturmvoraus, it may be inferred prior to proof that "Grandma" is the senior member of the cadet branch of Valois (or possibly Sturmvoraus), which would make her the likely Commander General as well.

Her actual name (last or first) is yet to be revealed; so far, when relatives speak of her, they always refer to her as just "Grandmother," usually in tones of fear and respect. [1] She apparently makes the major decisions for the house(s), or at least to make the ones that stick, especially now that post-Timeskip she is reported to have lost her husband and has become/taken over the duties of The Council.

Of course, there's the (increasingly unlikely) possibility it's a codename, like "Mother".

Her ability to throw a party has also achieved her a degree of infamy; it was her party sleigh that Agatha commandeered for her escape from The Refuge of Storms. And after hearing numerous passing mentions of her, the reader finally meets her in person in Paris talking to Seffie on that very subject, as Agatha and Tweedle's arrival sends social (and potentially physical) shockwaves through the city.

According to Violetta at least, Grandmother hates Lucrezia, and has ordered all of her followers to break off contact with the latter woman and her forces. Smoke Knight cells still loyal to Lucrezia, like one led by Madwa Korel, have been burned from the cabal, and all other factions' smoke knights have standing orders from Grandmother to set aside rivalries and cross agendas to pursue the rogue cells for elimination should they be encountered.
