Lenna often comes across as too kind and self-sacrificial for her
own good. Seven years before she encounters Butz, her mother died
of a strange illness. The only cure for this illness was the tongue
of a sky dragon, but if she had killed it then the dragons would
become extinct. She suffered greatly, and her willingness to sacrifice
herself for the good of others comes from this experience. She is
everything to her father, and rarely, if ever, disobeys him.
