Jóra is a shrewd and stealthy archer who travels from tournament to tournament to earn a living. She is small and atlethic has green-brown eyes, long red-brown hair and a conspicuous necklace. She is an excellent horse rider and combines it with skillful archery. She likes riding along the coast and through forests for additional food and adventure.

She has no direct family except for two distant uncles. She owns a dog who is half wolf called Rán. Jóra has learned to trade in small precious objects like amber and half gems. She usually carries a bag with her on her travels. Jóra likes to hunt in the woods and searches for amber and other precious things along the coastline.


Jóra grew up in small village near a forest. Her grandparents perished at sea when she was very young. Recently an attack by local bandits on her house killed her parents too. The house was surrounded and burned down, she had to escape the fires and flee into the wilderness. Luckily for her she had learned a lot of survival skills from her mother. She used to be an excellent hunter and herbalist. Her father was a member of the village watch and was able to use the bow to great effect. Jóra found a young puppy in the woods after the attack on her house and brought her in. She raised the young pup and they became great friends. Nowadays the two are inseparable and travel together all the time.

At present Jóra travels from town to town to enter tournaments. The prizes she earns pay for her food, trade and boarding. When there are no more tournaments to enter she tries to pick up bounties which have been set on criminals usually by jarls or town leaders. She tries to hunt down these criminals or bandits and is able to earn a reasonable amount of silver from it. She puts use of her dog Rán as tracker to great effect while doing these searches. The hunts on these criminals are partially motivated by revenge for the deaths of her parents.

Jóra's primary skills are riding and accuracy, her secondary skills are searching and hunting. Jóra owns a horse and a dog, some quality weapons such as a bow, axe and seax. She uses a shield and wears a common chainmail. She owns 3 silver and has a monthly income of 3 silver.
