"She doesn't batten, you know; in certain narrow ways, she makes herself quite useful. It is sad, though, that she herself destroys the gratitude that ought to be her reward."
―Ista, regarding Lady Tessa[src]

Lady Tessa dy Hueltar was the dowager Provincara dy Baocia's cousin and close companion. She was a widow and lay dedicat of the Temple. Her other boon companion was the Divine Tovia.

Personality and Traits[]

Lady dy Hueltar was elderly and shared the dowager Provincara's rigid sense of propriety. In Paladin of Souls, she was scandalized when Ista set out on her pilgrimage with only Liss as attendant. Lady dy Hueltar arrived at Porifors when the siege was broken, trailed by what seemed like hundreds of servants, grooms and maids in support of a dozen ladies from the courts of Valenda and Taryoon. After she tried to replace Liss, Ista handed her off to her brother, who she believed would find dy Hueltar a suitable place.
