Kel pretty much runs the homestead in the forests surrounding Dungill Fens - for a given value of "run".
She is good at nearly everything she does and is a dab hand with a trout. By birth and by training, she's an able witch with a natural if somewhat limited shape-shifting talent, but she is also good at playing musical instruments. She manages well at management, surprisingly enough, even though she's not all that good at planning ahead and may well find that she hasn't been paying attention to what's going on around her.
Kel reckons she was born around the year 975. Her father was a human musician, her mother a tree-dwelling faerie. As a half-human growing up among the faeries, Kel was considered an oversized, clumsy, shy and wingless faerie who fell out of trees a lot. Little is known about her between the moment she went off to take the Rite of Serfdom at the age of fourteen, and the day she surfaced as the Green Knight's bondswoman. She was liberated, after a fashion, from the Green Knight's clutches, by Tamlin's gang.
The gang considered Kel an undersized, clumsy, wanton and flighty girl who climbed into trees a lot. Initially, they tolerated rather than accepted her, because she wasn't, on the whole, much use to them. Eventually, she found her place, and after a short visit to the land of the Gnomes, where she discovered her shapeshifting ability, the witch Atra started trying to train this strange half-elven girl with the powerful natural magic.
The next year, in 997, she met Jodoque, King Groy's court jester. The king had fallen on hard times, but after he was returned to his rightful position, Jodoque stuck around with the gang. They now consider themselves married although the arrangement is somewhat rural. Kel gave birth to her daughter Fay in late 1000. This has not stopped her from getting into more trouble at every opportunity.
Lately, Kel has been subtly advertising her ethnic background, on the assumption that it's nothing to be ashamed of and may well help garner business for a practicing witch.
