Kara is a Bazhir of the tribe of the Bloody Hawk. She possesses the gift, which caused the tribe, foremost the shaman Akhnan ibn Nazzir, to make her an outcast. Her position in the tribe only improved when Alanna of Trebond arrived. Alanna spoke for Kara and the other two outcasts of the tribe, Kourrem and Ishak. She taught them how to handle their gift and what they needed to know as a shaman. Later Kara and Kourrem became the new shamans of the tribe.
