Shura brought a farm from a family, but no she is first generation cheese farmer. Her parents are typical adventurers. Most of her upbringing involving learning how to be a cheese farmer. And yeah, I think I forgot to add the rustic feature, I’ll add that in soonish. Gratzi!
I imagine it involves cheese. Specifically, Shura has been living in Swampmuck for a while, but I would assume what make Shura a folk hero was one particularly bad harvest season and a brutal winter, limiting the food in the village. Shura, being the mad lass she is, went into overdrive and made a lot of cheese, even killing a few of her precious dairy cows in order to provide enough food for the village during the winter. It was also during this time that she invented (I.e. I am stealing) the cheese steak sandwich, a staple during these hard times.
Well I’ll admit this one was more related to a grander legacy aka her grandfather is actually one of my older dnd characters in Faerun, though he can easily adapt to this verse as well. In any case her grandfather is also a half-orc who was born as a pirate, though most of his duties growing up involves cooking, at least until he was old enough to start fighting, and even then he still cooked when he wasn’t fighting. One thing led to another and eventually he became a full fled adventurer, exploring and going out in journeys with new people to grow stronger, but also pursue his dreams of settling down and getting a family. He ended up getting a formal education in cooking at a fictional chef’s guild called the College of Gluttony, a very prestigious but also harsh academy of the culinary arts. He survived the grueling process of gaining his masters as a chef via the college, and shortly after retired from adventuring to pursue his career as a chef, using his fortunes amassed as an adventurer to fund his restaurant and invest in businesses that would help him.
As for where he learned how to rear cattle, that’s thanks to his wife, a wood elf Druid. She helped him a lot about how to have a more personal connection to animals, as well as how to rear and take care of them in sickness and health. She eventually passed away however, killed due to reasons beyond the scope of Shura. But point is that’s where he learned about how to raise cattle, since he specializes in surf and turf foods.
In any case, his restaurant and farm are both likely at the Capital. He’s still a man of the sea at heart, so he prefers to live near the ocean so he can also get fresh fish and seafood. Being a half-orc he’s still fairly spry into his old age, though he’s starting to lose it in the head, so his business is mostly be ran by his employees, though he himself is still the head chef. He has a some and daughter, both half-elves, though only the son is his child by blood, and that son is Shura’s father, the elves scholar.
