Mayoress Helena Förstra & The Förstra Family
The Förstra family is a proud and loyal family, one that sets their roots deep into the earth braced to weather any storm. Their name originates from their relationship to the earth, and its many gifts, through arboriculture, carpentry, and architecture. It is believed that the family motto originated through its Proto-Neran ancestry, and relates to the fierce dedication to adherence of the Virtori. That it takes both sword and scythe, to enforce the will of the righteous and defend the virtues of Mann.
Helena Förstra was born to the industrious family in the City of Shork, when the county was fairly young. While still young herself, the Förstra Family became unhappy with city life, they met with the Count of Freeport to propose a mutual agreement, that the Förstra Family be allowed to settle enough land to build a town, and in return, help feed the ever growing population of his county and meet the increasing demands for good lumber. The Count, owing many large favors to the Förstras agreed to the proposal and the Förstras were permitted to build what became known as the town of Pinesedge, named after the groves of towering pines raised in the area.
Helena Förstra, seeks to raise a large family in order to spread her lineage and further the health and prosperity of the Förstra name. However, she has decided to pause any search in a family alliance via suitor until the right time. As such, if you desire the Förstra name and would like to take root in Pinesedge or nearby locations within Freeport County - Helena should be contacted for further details.
Family Alliance, through marriage: Vacant, not currently looking for suitors
