Varisia: Rise of the Runelords
Shalelu Andosana isn’t quite a bounty hunter, a survivalist, or a mercenary, but rather a mix of all three. The elven woman passes through town once or twice a season to buy supplies and never remains more than a few days, always staying in the same room at the Rusty Dragon free of charge thanks to her long friendship with Ameiko. Near the end of each visit, she meets with Sheriff Hemlock and Mayor Deverin for a few hours at the garrison to give a report on the state of the hinterlands before she leaves town again, a pouch of gold at her side. Both Hemlock and Deverin value Shalelu’s reports, since they provide unbiased insight into how the local farmlands are faring and keep the town council abreast of burgeoning dangers in the region.
Eydan and Cherif sat in on one of these meetings after the initial goblin raid, in which Shalelu warned of unprecedented cooperation and organization among the seven goblin tribes. She also shared much information about the goblins, with which her and Eydan crafted an excellent map of the goblin’s territories in the hinterlands. She then promised to return within 2 days while she gathered information on goblins to the east of town, but has not returned since, nor has she communicated with her closest relative, her grandfather, Vast Chaos, who also resides in the hinterlands.
Vas and the other heroes of Sandpoint were able to rescue Shalelu from Thistletop, where she had been held captive by Nualia Tobyn and her goblin lackeys.
