It’s hard enough being a Halfling. It’s especially hard when those two halves are Dwarf and Goblin and you live in a world built for tall people. You get stepped on and run over just walking to the library, and then when you try to join a guild, it turns out You Must Be This Tall to Apply.
Occupation: Relentlessly persistent job-seeker, professional short person
Likes: adventure, adventure stories, her parents
Dislikes: being short in a world of tall people, height requirements
The Halfling daughter of a Dwarf chef and a retired Goblin adventurer-turned-author, Pela has been trying to follow in her mother’s footsteps since acquiring her adventuring licence. She has wanted to be an adventurer ever since her mother told her the stories of her own adventures.
So far, she has not been successful, as few of the guilds in Porthaven are willing to make time for a novice adventurer that are likely to trip over.
Though usually an optimistic young woman, constant rejection has beginning to make Pela question her ambitions and wonder if there really is a place for a Half-Goblin in any of the guilds in Porthaven.
Luckily, Pela can rely on the constant support of parents no matter what she ultimately decides to do with her life. Her father, for example, would be thrilled if she decided to follow him in the culinary arts.
Pela isn’t quite ready to give up on her dreams of being an adventurer and is still holding onto the hope that there’s a guild out there somewhere willing to take a chance on short people like her.
