Tales Dark and Grimm
Isker the Blacksmith
Although he spends most of his time shoeing horses and repairing farm tools, Heldren’s blacksmith is also a doting father. His daughter, Xanthippe works as his apprentice.
When not at her father’s forge, Xanthippe’s likely to be found at the Silver Stoat, holding court with her numerous suitors. Although widely considered the village beauty, Xanthippe is as proficient with her fists as with her hammer, and those few of Heldren’s young men who have tried to woo her too aggressively walked away with black eyes for their troubles.
