I wish we knew more about her. In the book, she and Hyzanthlay were co-leaders of the does who asked to leave Efrafa, but all we hear and see is Hyzanthlay.

Thethuthinnang seems to be one of the most underused characters :( Despite being Hyzenthlay's partner in the group of Efrafan rebels, she hardly does anything notable in the original book.  She doesn't appear in the film, and in TFWD she doesn't get alot of character development, unlike Hyzenthlay and Vilthuril.

However, she will appear in three episodes of the miniseries, so hopefully we will see more of her there...

I really am excited that she will be in the miniseries. I really wanted to know more about her but sadly she's really just a filler character. Just sorta thrown in so Bigwig won't be alone. At least that's how I feel. Even in the animated series she was replaced completely with Spartina whom I wasn't actually to fond of.

I hated the design they gave her and I found her overall presents stereo typically executed with a flatline character development arc that felt rushed and filled with under used potential. I really wish they had used Thethuthinnang but I suspect that her name in itself was quite difficult to really get across since the series is catered more to children then the book actually is. Same thing for Hyzenthlay. Their names themselves were just to out of the ordinary for younger children.

At least that's what I was able to piece together
