Shalelu Andosana is an elven warrior who makes her home in the wilds of central and western Varisia. She lost her father when she was very young to the attack of a bugbear assassin. Her late mother was called Seanthia, who took a human, Jakardos, as a second husband whom Shalelu treated as a stepfather. Although something of a mystery to the residents of Sandpoint, she’s certainly one of the town’s most admired defenders. She doesn’t actually live in town, but she sometimes stays at the Rusty Dragon visiting her longtime friend, Ameiko Kaijitsu, and spending a night or two with her paramore, Kasa Lemalei.
Everyone in town knows that Shalelu is something of a loner and prefers to spend her time wandering in and exploring the wilderness around Sandpoint. She periodically vanishes from the region for weeks or even months at a time to visit friends elsewhere in Varisia (particularly, it’s said, near Hook Mountain), but she never fails to return to Sandpoint. No one quite understands why she keeps coming back. When asked why, she merely says, “Someone’s got to keep an eye on you all.”
