Name Pronounced: OOS-ka
Appearance: Uska is 5' 2", with a pear-shaped figure that has thickened from childbearing. She has an ordinary prettiness that is only now beginning to be blurred by the harsh Southern climate. Her hair is of a dark honey color that bleaches out to a light straw-blond in the sun, and was flaxen when she was younger.
Personality: A warm fire, banked, would be a good analogy for her personality. Uska is playful, flirty, and an upbeat person, when she allows herself to be who she really is. Most of the time, she is almost invisible, she's so self-effacing, deep in her forceful husband's shadow.
History: Born to cotholders at Nabol Hold, Uska had an ordinary childhood until the age of six Turns. At that time, she contracted a terrible fever and almost died. She survived, but at a terrible price. She was completely deaf, and almost blind.
