A human that has both Keidran and human ears; she is part of the "second party." Trace cursed her with the Keidran ones because he found her annoying, but the curse backfired when it turned out she loved her second pair of ears. Karen runs a tavern with Maren and travels with her, Red, and Raine.
"Karen is outgoing and excited; she hates being bored and will go out of her way to make things interesting."
"Karen is the hyperactive younger of the Taverndatter sisters. She doesn't care about races or wars or religions. She just enjoys interesting stuff, and if nothing interesting is happening, she tends to cause it. Karen's extra set of Keidran ears were given to her as a curse by Trace, whom she was annoying. The curse backfired, however, when Karen decided she loved the ears and wanted to keep them."
