Gran will tell you she is as old as dirt. She probably is. She has a way about her that makes anyone see the world differently.
She had an arranged marriage, and though she didn’t love him they got a long. So despite the fact she didn’t like Hägar that much, she saw he loved her daughter and she loved him in return.
And she would never admit she admired his protective streak.
She outlived her husband, and all but one of her kids, and that was before she was Turned.
