The daughter of a high born but poor nobleman and acts as lady-in-waiting and confidante/ancilla to Lady Rosanda, Molin Torchholder's wife. She is quite intelligent and loves to manipulate other's lives.

Whenever possible, she acts to manipulate Molin, who is mostly unaware of her machinations, being thoroughly conditioned to believe in Rankan male supremacy.
