And The Stars, And the Earth

Helga and Torvald Halmskjald have farmed their marshy patch of soil near the lake for fifteen years; a blink of an eye in a town as old and set-in-its-ways as St. Martindale. They were refugees from a village that was destroyed by bandits in the Earth Kingdom, and settled here after a long journey from the North. Their children, Oscar (aged 7) and Anna (aged 4) were born and raised in the town and grew up in the Faith of the Merciful Angel. However, their parents still hold the old ways close to their hearts and turn to the aid of Zabine the wise-woman before they seek help from the church.
