Although her background is unclear, she finds Jaykay near the caverns when he is a grub. Realizing that highbloods will likely take him and kill him, she takes him in as her domesticulled. Taking in a troll of higher blood than you was technically illegal, but she made no big deal over the subject and was ignored for the most part.
When Jaykay was 5 sweeps old, their was an altercation on a beach with some purple bloods. It is not revealed how she died, or the identity of her murderer, but the event was bloody, and left a scar on Jaykay that could never be healed.
