Curse of the Crimson Throne
Field Marshall for the Korvosa Guard
As a ranking guard who also moon-lighted as an adventurer, Cressida gained her fame after foiling a plot of the Cult of Norgorber and ultimately driving them from the city. Her star quickly rose, and King Eodred himself appointed her to the position of Field Marshall.
Cressida has a reputation for being fair, and also a liking for adventurers – having a tendency to bring them on ‘auxiliary’ members of the guard who have more flexibility than the common guardsman.
