Halla is a crop farmer who earns a living from linen. She is rather small but sturdy, has dark brown hair and grey eyes. She has developed an eye for opportunities and her timing is often spot on. She uses the local brook that passes her farm to irrigate her crops. The effectiveness of her irrigation is most impressive and the farm thrives because of it.
The size of the family is average. She has a husband called Galti, one daughter en three sons. Galti is often working with the oxes to plough the fields and keep them in good condition. Kára her daughter is often busy making nice objects from linen ranging from clothing to shoes. Her sons Dafi, Dufgall and Ebbe help their mother with the fibre crops. In addition to farming they often go hunting in the nearby woods and put up traps and snares to catch small game. Their hunting trips has increased the much needed variety in their daily diet.
Halla was born in a small town high up in the mountains. Her parents were thrown of their land after a dispute with a landowner about the rent. They took all their belongings and moved to a new plot of land in an adjacent district. Here they found a derelict farm with fields that had been overgrown for many years. In the first few years the family had some tough times at the new farm. The buildings and fields needed a lot of work to get them in good shape again. New crops needed to be sown and food was sometimes scarce. Halla was the only child during this time, but when the farm was repaired and ready a little sister and brother were born. Many happy years followed after that. But one day her father suddenly got ill and died unexpectedly after a short sickbed. He was buried on a nearby hill overlooking his farm and fields.
Nowadays the family and the farm are doing well. They recently bought another cart which enables them to deliver more goods to the markets faster. The quality of the linen is high enough to be exported to foreign lands. Their yield is increasing every year. One of their children is being taught by another craftsman and has been learning more tricks of the linen trade. Halla is also contemplating about building a cistern to store more water which will get them through the dryer periods somewhat easier.
Halla has good skills in farming and irrigation, her secondary skills are haggling while trading. Halla's assets are a farm, a cart and three lands with fields for crops (pick two fiber crops field cards and a third one of your choice). She has 20 silver and an income of 5 silver per month. She also has one trade contact to sell her goods to (pick one trade card with fiber corps in exchange for something else).
