Embla Arnarsdotir

Birth Place: -

Born: -

Embla and her two children, Elina and Erik, live on their small farm, scratching a living from the land. Embla was widowed when her husband succumbed to infection, following a run in with a boar while hunting.

Now she runs the farm family, growing and selling vegetables and keeping sheep. She is known for her high quality, finely spun wool and is never seen without a spindle in her hand.

She is often found in the woods, where she has an eagles eye for berries, fungi and edible leaves, sending her children to gather what she spots for the basket, while she endlessly spins.
