Forest Woman’s Daughter

The NPC book Shards of the City provides several characters who could end up as love interests for player-character adventurers. One is Nia, a young druid. Her mother is also a druid with a hobby of baking. Niara (the older woman) has for years used her hobby to have a booth in the market of a nearby city, meeting people there and finding out what is going on in the town and elsewhere. In the book, Nia has taken over the market chores as her mother concentrates her time on other things.

While she is also a druid, the cityfolk think of her as just a baker’s apprentice from a little way out of town. For now Nia usually keeps a low profile in the city but eventually she is going to surprise them. Danger to or abuse of animals would certainly get a strong reaction from her, and a protector of animals would earn her admiration and interest.
