The party met Raelin at her stand at the Alu Lyth University's exhibition, where Moe, a giant octopus, was on display. She was very excited to meet the party (despite initially mistaking Virga for a half-orc), and told them about the giant sealife found off the coast of Alu Lyth, including Moe the giant octopus, and Buck the giant seahorse.
Raelin could be generously described as enthusiastic. She's cheerful, outgoing, and helpful, but not always tactful, which can make for some awkward situations. Raelin does, however, seem to be genuinely well-meaning.
