This battered, well-used suit of +1 half-plate automatically resizes itself to match the size of its wearer. Once per day on command, the armor can bestow upon its wearer the effects of righteous might for
5 rounds. The wearer’s alignment determines the DR gained from this ability. A good wearer gains DR 5/evil, an evil wearer gains DR 5/good, and a wearer who is neither good nor evil chooses which DR to gain the first time she activates this ability—once chosen, it cannot be changed.

Greta was born to Helena Bolkasdottir, the product of a passing tryst with a high-ranking Janderhoff official who happened to be married. In disgrace, Helena fled while very pregnant, eventually settling in Trunau when Greta was born. Greta was raised in Bolka's tradition and became a loving, happy girl. All this changed when Helena was killed in an orc raid when Greta was barely a teen. Greta became intensely depressed, turning her anger into a passion for defending the town and gaining vengeance for her mother's death. She trained in arms and armor, taking her place on the Trunau militia, eager to kill.

Everything changed again when, in the midst of a battle between orcs and townsfolks, she witnessed two lovers, one orc, one human, try to stop the violence, only to be slain in the heat of battle. At that moment she witnessed the true beauty of love and its power to stand against even the strongest hate and if not win, at least burn brightly to the very end.

Bolka spoke to her in that moment, and she began to temper her anger with a burning desire to see love prevail over the hatred. Since then, she has defended the town as vehemently as any, but she also seeks to play matchmaker, to ensure that the people of Trunau have reasons to live as well as reasons to kill.

Recently she has struck up a friendship with the Ramblehouse's Cham Larringfass, sharing a mutual appreciation for the fine art of matchmaking. When she is not tending to the sick or performing marriages, she hangs out there, encouraging the lovesick and the lonely to follow their passions and express their feelings.

But, with the first new dwarves she's seen in... well, forever, arriving in town, things may change for Greta. Destiny has a way of calling to us...

Greta is a stout, curvy dwarven lass with long blond hair and a ready smile. She also sports calluses on her hands and a ready air about her from her time as a defender of the town. She tends to smirk when she talks and sometimes flirts a little too readily.
