Female Human Cleric (retired)
Born: 55 years ago
The Abbess has been in Durk her entire life, having grown up in the Abbey an orphan. She currently oversees the Abbey and its inhabitants, though her behavior has become increasingly disjointed. Many fear she is slipping into dementia, while others whisper secret rumors of demon possession. This creeping personality trait of hers began fifteen years ago, when she exiled all of the orphans currently living in the Abbey. She then sent messengers to clerics — some of them former orphans of Pelor Abbey — asking them to return. Many did, and they were given room to live in the Abbey and instructions to keep Durk safe. The Abbess then left for two years. She returned looking exactly the same as before, and would not tell anyone where she went.
She currently wanders Durk doing practically nothing. Sometimes she helps people build shelters, sometimes she wades up to her waist in the river. No one is sure if she is crazy, or getting old, or what.
