Before Leetah was born, Toorah (TOO-rah) was the only healer in the Sun Village. She had no magical healing powers but was good with salves and needles. She was a herbalist, gatherer and an advisor. Mother to both Leetah and Shenshen, lifemate to Sun-Toucher, Toorah was completely supportive of Leetah, advising her in gentle and subtle ways. She has a mother's protective bent but does not try to influence, just guide.
