Curse of the Crimson Throne
Field Marshal Cressida Kroft
Field Marshal Cressida Kroft leads the nearly 700 soldiers of the Korvosan Guard. In her early forties, she is an attractive, raven-haired woman, who dresses in well-crafted but unfancy red plate armor. She carries a longsword at her hip, and by all accounts is well-versed in its use. Though she has a businesslike, no-nonsense manner, she is known to be a just leader, beloved of her troops and well respected by the common folk.
She is firm friends with Vencarlo Orisini, though his relaxed, nonchalant air often frustrates her.
