The Orphans of Cathorna
"This is MY inn. Wipe your feet or go drink somewhere else."
A Dunlending from Larach Duhnan, Groot runs the inn. 50 years old, he is a hard headed business man who does not tolerate fools, even if they have money. As the owner of one of the few public buildings in Cathorna, he has considerable social influence, and takes advantage of it to get his own way. He has two daughters (Dell and Nisha, 1623 and 1621) and a son (Bort, 1618) who work for him, and is constantly looking for husbands for the girls. Nobody knows what happened to the children’s mother, and none of the family will discuss it at all.
Groot expects Bort to take over the inn when he decides to retire, and dismisses his dreams of finding adventure in the world. While not actually popular, he does have a social circle amongst those of civic influence, and is a regular guest at council functions and official events.
