Gyruff (Grand Duchy of Geoff)
Countess of Cryllor - Widow of Count Ignas Manz
Countess Manz is a middle aged shrewd and blunt woman who speaks her mind without directly offending people. She doesn’t suffer fools gladly and “pokes” at Baronet Volkmar and the unfortunate turns of his family’s breeding. She is also very pointed about the Good Hills. Apparently, there is a dispute over mining rights between the County of Cryllor and the Good Hills. She and Lord Findle get into a pleasant, but barbed conversation over the merits of the dispute.
