Grog 18 : Maria, the avaricious Redcap
Maria was the daughter of an innkeeper in Flanders, their inn stands along the road leading from the sea-ports to Trianoma and sees a number of redcaps pass by. The little maria seeing how wealthy these red capped riders seemed to be once hid herself deciding that one of them should raise her instead and she could have their silver. The Redcap, rather than being mad at the little stowaway decided that such an adventurous child would make a good apprentice and took her on. They travelled extensively in the greater Triamore area and lower Lorraine, where she learned French. Her parens was a convinced horse rider and made sure that she would also be swift on the saddle and tireless in her deliveries. Seeing how little interest Maria had for physical confrontation, she was able to focus her studies on social skills, in particular Bargaining as she would argue over the very last copper coin.
Maria is freshly out of Gauntlet.
Maria is blond and heavy set, her skin is tanned by all the time she spent on horseback, and wears riding trousers and boots anytime she is on horseback, but switching to skirts when not on the road. She has a foul mouth, making more than one blush with the curses she learned from the Fulda to the Norse sea. She is not charming, but has a keen eye for people and good intuitions ion how she might get the best of them.
Why are they in the Covenant?
Maria is freshly gauntleted and needs a home Covenant, the absence of other Redcaps in the party's Covenant make for a good base. She will seek to hoard wealth and is certainly happy to lend Vis to the PCs but she will do so with interest.
