Curse of the Crimson Throne
Field Marshal Cressida Kroft
Loyal to Korvosa, the Guard, and the Queen... in that order
Cressida is the current leader of the Korvosan Guard, and has instated a policy of allowing adventurers and other contractors to assist with thornier problems on behalf of the Guard (under the catch-all ‘Guard Auxiliary’). This practice has earned her some criticism from the wealthier quarters of Korvosa and from those who fear it could lead to abuses of power by contractors cozy with the Guard.
Cressida has hired Zellara’s champions to address unusual problems during the period of unrest following the death of King Eodred.
