Age of Broken Chains
Tormented halfling cook
Mirtala is a middle aged female halfling. She has pale skin, dark brown hair, and blue eyes and clearly used to be quite pretty when she was younger. Years of hard work have taken their toll, though when she smiles the ravages of age seem to slide away for a while. She is bruised, clearly has some broken bones, and is nearly catatonic since being captured by the orcs. They have subjected her to the worst of their cruel games. Her well-kept working clothes are torn, soot-blackened, and bloody.
Mirtala has spent her entire life in Paratum or the surrounding area. She is the head cook and brewer at the Dancing Lion resthouse on the east side of town. She’s happy with the fairly mundane, but comfortable, life she has. When the orcs attacked, the Dancing Lion was one of the first to be put to the torch and Mirtala was one of the few who survived the mad dash to escape the fires, only to run smack dab into the orcs looking for playthings.
