The boarding house is the home of its owner and proprietor, the rail-thin, pipe-smoking “Mother” Yalantha Dreen (female Tethyrian human commoner). Mother Yalantha lives in a cramped ground-floor room at the very back, and most of the other twenty rooms are occupied by transient laborers. However, there are usually four or five rooms that can provide an overflow for the inn if the need arises.
