Xanthar The Brave
Friendly old woman
Ylsa doesn’t remember precisely how old she is – she has been in the hall since most of the current inhabitants were small children. Nor does anyone else remember exactly what her relationship to the Jarl’s family is – Ylsa will happily explain it if asked, but generally becomes tangled in the complicated genealogy. Nonetheless, she is accorded a great deal of respect as an Elder of the Hall.
Elder Ylsa’s primary role is to care for the small children of the Hall during the day, or whenever their parents and siblings are unable to look after them. She is fond of Oleg and tells him stories about heroes, monsters and days of old.
