Jara Doweel runs an isolated farm in the Black Hills. She is a harsh taskmistress (TPoD, Ch. 26; WH, Prologue).

She enjoys poverty (WH, Prologue).

Toveine Gazal had to spend her twenty years in exile working on Mistress Doweel's farm (TPoD, Ch. 26).

After her exile was over, Toveine showed Mistress Doweel what it means to try pushing her down (WH, Prologue).


"Mistress Doweel -- even now, she could not think of the woman without the honorific she had demanded -- Mistress Doweel believed in hard work. And discipline as tight as any novice faced! She had no mercy on anyone who tried to shirk the backbreaking labor that she herself shared, and less than none for a woman who sneaked away to comfort herself with a pretty boy." (Toveine; The Path of Daggers, Chapter 26)
