Scales of War
Matronly cook at the Antler and Thistle
The cook at the Antler and Thislte tavern, Mirtala is a kindly if reserved woman, with a penchant for taking in waifs and strays. She lost her husband in the war against the Red Hand, and has resisted remarrying since. Lacking children of her own, she has fostered orphans and runaways. She also has a keen ear for gossip, and knows much of what’s happening in the town altough she’s circumspect about passing any of it on.
She raised Gryll after it became too dangerous for a fire-breathing dragonborn and Adronsius’ alchemical experiments to be under the same roof. Mire is a frequent visotor at her place, too, especially at mealtimes, to which he has an open invitation.
