Ochobu Dodeka (pronounced OH-choe-boo doe-DEHK-ah) was a raka Copper Islander. She was a member of the raka conspiracy, and one of their most powerful mages. She was the leader of The Chain, a group of mages of the raka conspiracy. She died in 463 HE during the raka rebellion, which was successful. She had one son, Ulasim and a granddaughter called Junai.
Early life and marriage
Ochobu grew up in Pohon, a raka village known for its open dislike of luarin. She was raised with stories of Kyprioth and the Kyprish Prophecy, which was given to the raka people to instill a sense of hope in their hearts. Ochobu was an immensely powerful mage, and learned magic the raka way; very discreet but ultimately very powerful in order to hide from the luarin magic-sniffers. She married, and had a few children, including Ulasim.
The raka conspiracy
She became involved in the raka conspiracy, and was one of their head mages of The Chain. Her son also rose through the ranks of the conspiracy, to become its "head general". He watched over Duchess Sarugani and her two daughters Saraiyu and Dovasary Balitang, who carried the blood of the Haiming Dynasty, as well as the blood of the Rittevon Dynasty. Lady Saraiyu was said to be the queen mentioned in the Kyprish Prophecy.
Her husband's death
Her husband died at an unknown time. She had urged Ulasim to return to Pohon in order to say goodbye, but her son refused, as he was looking after his charges for the conspiracy. Ochobu's husband died without saying goodbye to Ulasim, and Ochobu never forgave Ulasim for this.
Recruitment by the Balitangs
At first she refused to work with any luarin and treated Aly with contempt. However, foremost because of Kyprioth's help, she finally agreed to become the Balitang's healer, mainly to provide better magical protection than Rihani could. Ochobu was a high-ranking member of the Chain and accompanied the Balitangs back to Rajmuat. Ochobu died in the attack on the Grey Palace and was the Wise One, of the Kyprish Prophecy. She was buried next to the steps to the Throne Hall, on the far side from her son, in a grave covered in lapis and bronze.
