"Witch" of Brindol
Zerriksa is an aged woman who hobbles around with a cane and is cranky. This is enough for the residents of Brindol to name her as a “witch”, a misconception she has encouraged. In fact you learn she is an accomplished herbalist, though she is in fact quite cranky and stingy with the products of her work. She was isolated by her captors in the catacombs under Castle Rivenroar by a magic force field because they thought she was a witch, so she survived mostly unmolested. Now she remains in her lodgings just outside the walls of Brindol living her life as normal.
