But she died by plasma arc.  Aral specifically says something about her
beautiful face being blown away by it.

Lots of possibilities but my favorites are either that she did it herself,
or Piotr had placed a servant within Vorrutyer house to kill her. "Giving"
servants to other families seems like a relatively common practice so it
wouldn't have seemed unusual.

But of course Ges could have been involved.
