Bio: Widow of husband Siah, mother of Karic and Gabrielle, and inhabitant of Cricket's Glen. A poor seamstress, she is courted by Deishun until his death. Her demeanor is sweet natured, loving and nurturing, yet can be politely defiant, resourceful under stress, and capable of brutal defensive violence when her family is threatened. She is taken captive by a rat raiding party commanded by Captain Tosk, en route to the mice capital as a slave. Along the way she discovers the wounded Leito as a fellow captive, and tends to his severe injury.
