Typical Dialogue:
The baroness expects fealty - in deeds not merely words my love and the soft words of civilization not merely a warrior's grunts as well - remember when standing before her that you speak to a lady not one of your drinking cronies!
Lady Baroness, a pleasure to help as always. Fear not, my husband will not merely aid, he will, by months end, be certain 'twas his idea all along and praise you for agreeing with him.


Linna Nolien is the wife of Dane Ceolfrithsson, designated heir of Giant's Fastness. Her brother is Aedric Nolien, Count of Nolien. Linna is a friend and occasional companion of Baroness Fhiele Dhoesone. Linna has spent the last decade and a half trying to civilize her husband, and often laughing at her failure for she loves her husband dearly for all his faults.

A great ally of the baroness, Linna is nonetheless very proud of her husband's prowess in battling giants and the like and is harsh to those who complain he takes little interest in the "housekeeping" of his lands - in her mind such things are woman's work just as fighting and hunting is for men.

The House of Giant's Fastness is noted for its "frontier manners" and often looked down upon in the court, which is a constant source of grief for Linna who was brought up with the prominent Dvasviik family of Halskapa and detests the prejudice she sometimes hears directed against the Rjurik. Linna's main aims at present are to find some way of making her wayward daughter respectable (possibly some time in the care of the druids?) and teaching her sons and husband how to comport themselves in court.
