Hüvje presents something of a dilemma for many of her fellow villagers. On the one hand, she holds a respected position as the village’s priest of the new god. On the other hand, she is ridiculously beautiful, easily the greatest beauty in the village and the surrounding lands, and probably much further afield. You know those fairy tales that begin with an arrogant princeling falling in love with a stunningly pretty peasant girl? Hüvje is that girl, but she is also a priest, which is where the mental conflict comes from.
As if that weren’t difficult enough, she is also extremely easy to talk to and seems to genuinely interested in the lives of everybody in the village. Despite her position and the status that goes with it, she is very friendly and enjoys a drink and a laugh, and so is not at all the sombre clergy one might expect. There is a credible rumour that she was once in the military, perhaps a sailor on a military vessel, and she learned her trade as a chaplain. How she came to be a humble village deacon, then, is the subject of whispered speculation.
How she came to be a priest is simple enough: dead man’s boots. Poor Father Bert…
The new priest has been looking rather tired of late, as if she isn’t getting enough sleep, but that is only to be expected after recent events.
