Currently she is unattached, but hoping to find someone worthy while working, even if it means leaving Grayton's lot behind. Ketha has few interests and seeks to find a husband and start a family. Realizing that might not happen, she does have a decent job and place to live and resigns herself to that station.
Dena Cloakis the oldest of the Cloak children, almost twenty years old. She is fiery, upbeat, and outgoing with the patrons.

Franci CloakFranci is the youngest of the three Cloak children. At sixteen years old, Franci has dark hair, brown eyes, and a graceful demeanor. She spent most of her youth escaping the tavern to wander the fields and forests around Grayton's Lot. She often arrived home late and was in trouble frequently for her escapades and failure to do her chores around the inn. Since then, she is more responsible, but still spends most of her free time away from the city. Her mother, Natelie has been training Franci as a druid for several years now as time permits, but fears sending her to Ironholm, to the Druid Circle, to become a full fledged druid and possibly work for the Order of Eight. To this day it's not uncommon to find her working the taproom with a leaf, blade of grass, or twig unintentionally stuck in her hair. Franci has a flowing grace to her, like the wind through the leaves. She moves around the tables with ease, dodging even the rowdiest of customers movements. She knows her way around the inn well, but desires to leave and wander the world as her mother once did.

Normally he can be found chopping wood, cleaning rooms, fixing things around the building, or working in the kitchen. Jason is eager to a fault, and knows his prowess with someday fetch his desire of ownership. This is not due to being male, but he seeks to have ownership and works anywhere he is needed in the tavern. Neither of his sisters has a penchant to run the inn. Jason also has no interest in pursuing adventuring or scholarly endeavors. He knows most of the roles, but has trouble negotiating as he is abrupt and rash to the point of being belligerent. This attitude drives his father to anger, as it does not progress the inn. Jason prefers to work the taproom, but his poor customer service skills often lead him to working other parts of the inn where his attitude prevents him from getting into trouble.
Rostin KatelinskyRostin is a eleven year old boy who works the stables, and manages all of the horses, tack, wagons, and so forth that come into Golden Cloak. Jason will often help when it is busy.

Rostin often sleeps in the stables on a pile of hay near the back.
Sarah KatelinskySarah is the seventeen year old sister of Rostin. She works the taproom during the busy hours, and making up rooms during the morning. She is efficient if not always polite, but direct. Standing 5'7" tall and weighing about 130 pounds, Sarah is a typical example of a server in Grayton's lot. Clean and organized, she works long hard hours and will often sleep in the stables near her brother. The Katelinskys have both been working at the tavern for a couple of years, and rarely return home as their father is difficult and abusive. The Cloak's allow the two of them to sleep in the kitchen during the cold times and consider the two of them as part of the family, having them join during their periodic family meals.
