Curse of the Crimson Throne
Captain of the Korvosan City Guard
Cressida Kroft holds the highest position in the Korvosan Guard, that of Field Marshall. She is quietly admired throughout the city as an effective and able leader, known to be fair and just. She is in her forties and often looks tired beyond her years but is still possessed of a rugged attractiveness. She has dark hair and is almost always dressed in her signature red armor.
Cressida was not overly keen on Queen Ileosa essentially conscripting you into the Korvosan Guard but in this time of great unrest she sees the value in bolstering the ranks with skilled and capable individuals, and also the opportunity presented by having a group such as yourself who are not known as guards or bound quite so strictly by the laws and regulations.
