The Thistlecloak Tribe is a halfing clan of the Traveling People.
The Thistlecloaks are proud entertainers, and their group is as much traveling carnival as it is trade caravan. Jugglers, stilt-walkers, minstrels, mummers, and fools are all members of the tribe, and they have loyal fans in many towns and villages along their route. The Thistlecloak wagons are usually painted with a purple thistle on the side.
Maris Thistlecloak is the matriarch of the Thistlecloak clan. Maris is kind and motherly unless someone threatens one of her own, and then she becomes the protective mother grizzly, dangerous to behold. Her husband Bedin is a skilled carpenter and animal husbandry expert, but he’s happy to let Maris run the caravan.
