Curse of Strahd
Daughter of Kolyan Indirovich
Ireena Kolyana, a striking young woman with auburn hair, has been bitten twice by Strahd. The villagers are afraid of her and avoid her. Ireena’s seeks help and hopes for protection, so she is willing to accompany volunteers under certain conditions. Although she appears mild, she has a strong will, and she aids as best she can in saving herself. She doesn’t remember her early past.
She doesn’t know how she came to Barovia or where she came from. Moreover, her encounters with Strahd are fuzzy memories, but she can recall clearly the blazing hunger in his eyes.
She tells that wolves and other terrible creatures attacked the house night after night for weeks. The burgomaster’s heart couldn’t stand the constant assault, and he died three days ago. Strangely, since his death, the house has not come under attack.
She says that no one from the village has been brave enough to help Ismark take Kolyan Indirovich to the cemetery for proper burial. Ireena also asks the people she trusts if they would be so kind as to help Ismark deliver her father’s body safely to Donavich, the local priest.
