Marran is the current smith of Oakhurst. She is very talented, but doesn’t have the experience that Gareth had. She apprenticed under Gareth for many years.
Marran is single, but rumor has it that she and constable Felosial have secret relationship.
Marran is convinced that Gareth’s death was not natural. She doesn’t have any real reason to think this, but she hangs on, nonetheless. Her relationship with Felosial works against her here. No one believes that Gareth was murdered, so the constable won’t look too deeply into it because she doesn’t want anyone to suspect that she favors Marran.
