Jemanda is a representative of Oppara’s Kitharodian Academy. She has come to the Stolen Lands seeking one of that institution’s professors, a man named Ervil Pendrod. It seems Ervil recently traveled to Varnhold, following up some obscure clue about ancient Iobaria, but he didn’t actually arrange for a leave of absence.
She has entreated the Kamedon rulers with finding Ervil and convincing him to return to his job. Meanwhile, she is staying in Elkheart and enjoying the well-touted hospitality of Kamedon.
