After Yakone's escape from Republic City and subsequent assumption of a new identity, this Northern Water Tribe woman met him at a small village, shortly after which she fell deeply in love and married the man. Before long, she gave birth to two children, Noatak and Tarrlok. Unbeknownst to her, both children were trained by their father in the art of bloodbending; she was merely told that they were on hunting trips. A few days after Noatak ran away in reaction to a violent confrontation with his father, Yakone and Tarrlok returned home, and she was wrongfully informed that Noatak ran away and likely died in a storm. The loss of her first-born son weighed heavily upon her and she was never emotionally the same after that.
