Elinor has traveled south from the lands of the Linnorn Kings, her family having come second in a clan feud in the far north a year or so ago. She escaped with her great grandfather's sword, most of the family treasure, a few faithful warriors and a whole longboat full of attitude. She claims her grandfather was a king, her mother was a sky maiden and that she is biding her time before she goes home. No one who sees the look in her eye when she says this would want to be there when she arrives.
Elinor likes the fine things in life and has run through much of her rescued gold. She dresses well favouring fine furs and dark silks (and heels that are perhaps just a little bit higher than are practical) but you would never mistake her for anything other than a shield maiden and warrior of the Ulfen.
