Master Miles Firestone is a local farmer, living on the south end of the valley, among their rows and rows of pear-apple trees. He and his wife Berlan are reclusive, but well-known leading figures in the the “Old Faith”. He had two young daughters, Adelinda and Aoife (the eldest died under rather unfortunate circumstances), but several extended family members work their extensive orchards.
They make a popular cider and fruit juice that sells well in the Greenforest Inn, called “Firestone Cider”, a peppery cider, and a simpler juice known as “Firestone Juice”, selling for 2 sp and 1 sp per wineskin, respectively. Pear-apples sell for 20 sp per 30-lbs bushel. They also produce a rare spiced cider, “Fireapple Cider” that is usually only reserved for themselves and close family, that is amazing when warmed and served on long winter nights. Some casks can be acquired by family friends for a stiff 20 gp, but are few and far between.
Master Firestone and his clan have lived here for many generations, and are distantly related to Fionn Firetree. They do not have a clan crest, which hints at their relatively young age as a Ninnellen clan.
His eldest daughter, Adelinda, had a mystical history that involved her wandering the local hills and harrying off on odd adventures on a regular basis. It was revealed during the ceremony of the crowning of Baroness Neria Blackshield, that Adelinda was the offspring of a hag, substituted at some point early in her life, and unknowingly raised by the Firestones.
This green hag, known simply as their daughter, Adelinda, was held bound in the dungeons of Caer Dragonscorn, using the Emerald Shackles while the clan came to terms with the fact their daughter was truly dead. It was decided to slay the unrepentant creature, and during the ensuing fight, was slain by Ser Kranstin Shearwater, designated as her executor.
The large extended family has remained silent regarding the revelations, and have increasingly closed in on themselves over the winter. Rumors circulate they are remaining increasingly watchful of their remaining young daughter, Aiofe.
