(This might seem odd but I do have a couple of teapots that belong to two characters in Nai's world.)
This character, though I don't know much about.
I know her gender, ethnicity and the situation that starts her story moving.
I don't know whether she's in Padra or Heldigo, and I do know she's in a reasonably large and crowded city but not what it might be called. She shares a native language and accent with Valentine Trugrove, but not (at this stage anyway) his politics. She has not travelled widely.
So, suggestions please as to her starting point. Padra has no coast line but Heldigo has both a coastline and substantial islands.
