The Orphans of Cathorna
Cathorna's best hunter
A hunter of some thirty years of age, Kotlas knows the surroundings of Cathorna better than most. He hunts most days, returning with rabbits, bush fowl, goats, badgers and the occasional deer, bear or stoat. He always travels with a cat-like creature somewhere between a big house cat and a small lynx. In adition to bringing meat into the village, he gathers herbs, both for cooking and for healing, all of which he sells to the general store. He is quiet and withdrawn and tends to be surly when approached. Some people believe he is a thief, a terrible crime in such a small community; though no charge has ever been made, gossip is a sufficiently powerful force to see him ostracised by most. Other shadows have been cast on his character of late: Erfiren witnessed him threaten a fellow hunter over ownership of a small pig, though few know of this incident. it is no secret that Krisha Baric is trying to snare him, but he is keeping her at arm’s length. slightly closer on occasion.
