Courana Family

 Courana Farm

"Well you'd have to ask them. I believe the Courana sisters have several brothers and cousins. I'm sure with the right offer, they'd be happy to help. Oh, and Courana Farm is mostly sheep, but the dell there is one of the few places in these parts sheltered enough to make growing wheat worthwhile, so they'll have the expertise you need." - Barbara D'Ashe to Goltho Bearchaser, 1360 DR

The D'Ashe region is mostly sheep farming, but there is some barley farming, plus turnips and other root vegetables, mostly for diet variety. 
Debek Courana, Patriarch
Nestled in the sheltered woods four miles or so south of D'Ashe Manor, four miles from Dwarfstead, lie a small collection of farms surrounded by a rough palisade - the beginnings of a hamlet. Younger women and girls tend flocks of sheep, while sturdy men and boys bring in the last of the harvest.  Most of the people here are Couranas by birth or marriage, with the distinctive red hair of the family.  Draft Horse: Strawberry roan mare from Meryem (end M10 1360 DR).

Korin Courana, nephew of Debek
 
Maddis Courana, wife of Korin



Gathil Courana, Half-Elf, son of Debek

Tirie Courana, grand daughter of Debek



Lesley Courana, youngest child of Debek, shepherdess
Beverly Courana (concubine at Solanna Bael, herbalist)



Geradile Courana (concubine at Solanna Bael, shepherdess)





A younger man with a half-elven look comes over. "Hail there!" Debek: "This is Gathil, one of my boys. He's a fine thresher." Debek: "Oh, and before you say it - his mother was a half-elf, bless her soul."

Tirie takes the flower, beaming. "Wow! Magic flower!" She looks up. "I want to be a Druid when I grow up - just like you!"
Bearchaser: "Oh, I'm afraid I am not a druid. That is about the extent of my magics, unfortunately. As for faith, that is a difficult question."
Debek's smile fades a little. "Ah. We're followers of the Old Faith here. Always have been, since my ancestors came up from the south, hundreds of years ago."
Gathil: "I reckon I'll go check in on Beverly and Geradile while we're up there - though I heard they moved to an Elf tower?"
Debek to Goltho: "You know my nieces?"

Korin: Say, let me introduce my wife, Maddis..." He calls over a dark-haired young woman, who nods in greeting. "She's from down Malthlyn way... terrible trouble down there - her family had to flee north, which is how I met her. I heard Ranger Queale sorted it, though."
