Cressida Kroft

Field Marshal of Korvosa


Cressida Kroft is an attractive dark-haired human woman dressed in red armor. Although harried and tired-looking, she bears her exhaustion well.


The current leader of the Korvosan Guard, Field Marshal Cressida Kroft is an even-tempered woman whose practice of openly encouraging adventurers and mercenaries to aid the Guard in the city’s defense has earned her some unfair criticism by the city’s elite. As one of Korvosa youngest Field Marshal’s, she has few friends among the nobility and has had to work much harder than her predecessors to win their approval.

Marshal Kroft has invested all her energy in keeping the peace in the city, often to personal detriment, and her task in the current circumstances has only gotten increasingly difficult in these trying times.

Cressida personally requested the assistance of the heroes and has since commissioned them as members of the Korvosan Guard. Cressida has recently been employing the heroes like a scapel, tasking them with a number of sensitive assignments.
