Is this tavern the one she owns with Andrew? Assuming they are the same, on this page you call it a tavern, on Andrew's page you call it an inn. Which is it? Finally, should the link to Andrew's page be on the first instance of his name, assuming the Andrew in "Andrew's tavern" is the same. -- 23:06, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Inn and tavern are commonly used interchangeably in RPGs, it generaly refers to anywhere where a person can find alcohol and a room to stay for the night. Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 23:31, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
You don't sleep at a tavern, you sleep at an inn. Plus, with the two pages relating so close to each other it would be nice to have better consistancy. -- 23:44, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Her presence[edit]

She's only there for Commoners, isn't she? Shouldn't we categorize her as such? - Infinite - talk 19:32, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

It is my understanding that these special NPCs (Lord Faren, Petra, Quin, etc) will always be there, however based on your social status you will be friends with one of them, while the others will be just like random NPCs to you. However, this is not confirmed, it just my personal guess. --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 19:53, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Note about Ender's Game.[edit]

It seems a little far fetched. The two names match (though Ender is rarely referred to as Andrew), but the characters themselves have little in common. Ender's age ranges from ~6 to ~16 in the book, is fit and smart. Andrew is a fat inkeeper who looks much older than Ender. Petra and Ender were also only friends, not father and daughter (unless something happens in the later books I've not read). 06:55, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

ArenaNet has been known to make references to scifi series before. Just because their in-game appearance doesn't match their original appearance in the series doesn't outrule the possibility of a reference. But it's still good that you have noted this. It'd be nice if we could get some official word on these things. Mediggo 07:26, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
It still comes off a bit of a stretch. We can go around tagging random trivia based on names with all sorts of justification, but this veers, imo, into the realm of speculation. ANet does love a quick reference, but for better or worse, they're also really not subtle or shallow about it. Redshift 07:57, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
For what it's worth (absolutely nothing :P) Ender's Game was the first thing that came to mind when I saw Petra and Andrew. What are the odds that the two characters, Petra and Andrew, occur together unintentionally and randomly in a game whose developer is known for such pop culture, especially science fiction, shout outs? Still, you're right, we ought to wait for ANet to confirm. calor (talk) 02:17, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Another Petra[edit]

Should it be noted that there's another NPC named Petra in Dredgehaunt Cliffs? She's a young Norn girl near Granite Citadel Waypoint in Spearhead Bane. I'm not sure if she's involved in any events or story quests, but she has a short dialogue with options to increase ferocity, dignity, or charisma. 06:18, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Last Name[edit]

Does Petra/Andrew have a last name? Most minor NPCs like them don't - Quinn, Lord Faren, etc. but it would be nice to know. TiffanySmith.8216 (talk) 19:47, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

If she had a last name, we would have put it here. As is, she doesn't. - Doodleplex 02:04, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Commoner relations[edit]

Both Petra and Andrew adopt the human commoner, the way a husband and wife would normally. But Petra is Andrew's daughter. Does that make Petra your sister or your mother or your friend or what? The preceding unsigned comment was added by TiffanySmith.8216 (talk) at 01:51, 20 July 2018 (UTC).

First, please sign your comments with ~~~~, second where do you see it saying they adopted the player's character? The "My story" refers to them as the player's friends, not family. - Doodleplex 02:02, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply. (Really late...) But the human player is an orphan - whether or not you do the Lost Parents storyline, which has a lot more information - and so I'd always assumed that Andrew and/or Petra had adopted them. There is an orphanage in the Salma District, and so I would assume that any orphaned children would live there until adoption. The Lost Parents storyline - which I'm no expert on - may have more information. ~~TiffanySmith.8216 12:18, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
There's no reference to the PC being an orphan if they're not of Unknown Parents storyline. Nor who their adopted family is if they did take that storyline. In fact, if you chose Dead Sister storyline, you know your heritage, indicating that the human PCs of that storyline are not adopted. On top of that, during Defending Shaemoor, Petra and Andrew are also called "friends" by the PC. Konig (talk) 16:12, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
