Anola is the woman who handled the mass cooking for the village of Vo on Rumblecusp. As an NPC, Anola is played by Matthew Mercer.



Anola is a very squat, muscular-looking humanoid woman in her fifties, with thinning hair and an intense smile with very bright teeth.[1]


"Mysteries, Memories, and Music" (2x101)[]

Caduceus and Beau helped Anola and the other villagers prepare the feast that was held the evening they arrived, partially in order to keep an eye on what went into the food.

"A Fog Lifted" (2x106)[]

When Anola recovered her memories, she decided to stay on the island since she had spent most of her life on Rumblecusp. She began trying to offer comfort and counseling to the others. While she remembered her original name had been Wenthal, she elected to continue to be known as Anola.


Anola was part of the Vo community on Rumblecusp, handling the mass cooking for the village.[2]

  • Anola: (after recovering her memory) Viridian, I’ve been here a long time. I’ve spent more time here than I have at home. Do we all have to go?[3]
