Heroes Of Qa'lira
Conne is a small city located on a major trade route that connects the capitol city of Trimorei to most of the other cities in Qa’lira. It’s located on a river, so many trade caravans will travel to Conne to offload goods to send downstream to the capitol for sale.
Mayor Akta Tyressa:
Mayor Tyressa is a tall, lithe tiefling with black hair often kept in a tight braid in between two horns that curve back over the top of her head. She carries herself with authority, but is patient and fair – which has resulted in her consistent reelections over the past decade. She wears a fine teal coat made of wool that hangs down to her knees and carries a pointed rapier to match her pointed wit.
Captain Tristan Schrader
Captain Schrader is shorter than the Mayor, but can still command a room if needed. He is a middle aged human (appears to be in his mid 40s) with tanned skin, likely from years of outdoor patrols around the town. He has short black hair and dark, coffee colored eyes. He is known around town as a surprisingly gentle person for being the guard captain and would prefer avoid conflict, but he’s known to hold his own if necessary. He comes across as honest and straightforward, but rarely as harsh or rude, often adopting a more paternal attitude (especially to those younger than him).
