Owner of the Swinging Sword Inn, Red Larch
Kalessa is a loud and boisterous woman who is as forward with her advances as she is friendly with her customers. She is a stout woman who has a few scars from her past life as an adventurer and hanging over the bar is her beloved companion Gelmar, Hammer of Woe. A two handed weapon that most men couldn’t pick up, much less wield. No one doubts Kalessa’s ability to use it however. During festivals she will sometimes take it down and run through exercises to the delight of the town’s children. Needless to say this also serves to keep unwanted mischief away from her Inn.
