The mother of Ruan and owner of Helm's Watch Inn
Human, Female, 36 years old.
Maria runs the Helmswatch Inn, an inn in the village of the same name. She has lived her almost all her life and she inherited the inn from her mother, who founded it shortly after she was born.
She has two barmaids who help her with the running of the inn, which has always been busy despite the dangerous roads travellers have to take to reach Helmswatch. When he can be distracted from chasing the girls, her 18 year old son Ruan also occasionally helps out in the tavern.
