Shalelu is still relatively young for an elf, at 130 years of age, with large blue eyes, and blonde hair. Aloof in demeanor, Shalelu tends to act as a protective guardian, specifically towards Ameiko, who she sees as a younger sister of sorts. She’s always ready to step in and save friends, but she also believes that coddling allies too much robs them of the opportunity to improve themselves. While she’ll never fight someone’s battle for them, she’ll do what she can to assist them on their way.
Although Shalelu Andosana is something of a mystery in Sandpoint, she’s certainly one of the town’s most admired defenders. Like Sandru Vhiski, she doesn’t actually live in the town, but she sometimes spends the night at the Rusty Dragon free of charge, thanks to her friendship with Ameiko Kaijitsu. Everyone in town knows that Shalelu is something of a loner and prefers to spend her time wandering and exploring the wilderness around Sandpoint. She periodically vanishes from the region for weeks or even months at a time to visit friends elsewhere in Varisia, but she never fails to return to Sandpoint. No one quite understands why she keeps coming back. When asked why, she merely says, “Someone’s got to keep an eye on you all.” Her reports of goblin activity have helped save folk from ambushes or warned the militia of possible attacks on the town or its farmlands countless times. Yet as Sheriff Hemlock took a more active role in watching over the town, training his militia better than ever before, Shalelu’s aid grew less and less necessary. She actually seems relatively pleased with this, as if she’s proud that Sandpoint is finally able to look after itself. She had begun thinking about taking a long journey away from town in the future, and so when her friend Ameiko needed her help, she was more than willing to sign up with the Brinewall Expedition.
Shalelu can perform the following caravan jobs: guard, passenger, and scout. She has largely served on the Brinewall Expedition to scout ahead.
