Humanity has withstood test upon dreadful test, yet it endures. We endure. And we always shall.

— Queen Jennah

Her Royal Majesty Jennah, Queen of Kryta and Regent of Ascalon is a descendant of King Doric and the last member of the Salmaic dynasty, the ruling family of Kryta. Her coronation was in 1316 AE, after the death of her father. Her egalitarian rule makes her a very popular monarch in the eyes of her people, but this also causes much friction with the nobility. If hostile races like the centaurs besieging her people were not bad enough, she also has to deal with constant political intrigue and plotting from the Chamber of Ministers. Her biggest rival for power is Legate Minister Caudecus who some believe should rule Kryta instead of her. The norn view her as a weak leader and too dependent on her advisors, though they hold hope that she will prove herself by asserting her dominance over her kingdom.

Queen Jennah took the first steps towards a truce between humans and charr at the end of the Ogre Revolt, by granting freedom to the charr who had fought by her side. Four years later, she ordered a group of adventurers, with the aid of the Vigil, into the ruins of Ascalon City to retrieve the Claw of the Khan-Ur, in order to end hostilities between humans and charr.

Jennah is constantly under the protection of Countess Anise, her bodyguard. She also maintains a magical connection with her personal champion, Captain Thackeray of the Seraph, allowing her to call on him in times of need. Nevertheless, Jennah is an exceptionally powerful mesmer in her own right, able to single-handedly end the Ogre Revolt by creating a clone of an Elder Dragon convincing enough that its Branded minions withdrew, whilst simultaneously casting a glamour that held hundreds of humans and charr in place.
