Gelvira the Pot Stirrer
Mistress of the House at the Ford
Gelvira owns the farmstead closest to the Old Ford. Many travelers spend the night beneath her roof, enjoying her stew and her husband, Hagmund’s, ale and mead. She lives there with her two kids, Brunihild and Ava (both excellent bakers) and her mother, Legelaven the Ankle Biter (a nickname from her childhood that never went away). Legelaven’s renowned for making the best baked goods this side of the Misty Mountains.
Always on duty stirring her stew, adding vegetables and meat, she keeps an eye on the Great Hall, hearing all but the most carefully whispered conversations and aiding many travelers in their journeys.
