The Lady (Heldren)
The Lady is a statue that stands in the Heldren Town Square in the village of Heldren. Although its features have been worn down by the passage of many years, it clearly depicts a beautiful woman. No on in the village is entirely certain whom it’s intended to represent. Theories include the village’s long-forgotten founder, some kind of forest goddess or fairy queen, or an unknown war heroine. A few townsfolk maintain the theory that the statue was a gift from Qadira, Taldor’s ancestral enemies to the south, and is used by the Qadirans to spy on their northerly neighbors; few in town give that theory much credence.
The Lady is carved of white marble and sits on a small plinth. During the Harvest Festival, it’s decorated in seasonal flowers.
