 Orsha the Giant
And it was lucky for Orsha that Peoni escaped at that time, for just as she left the cottage, her daughter was assuming her most terrible aspect.
Her armour shone brightly, her sword glinted keen edged in the sunlight, and the shield Hyvrik was sturdy upon her arm; and flames were in her eyes, and upon her head.
But her sweet mother persuaded her not to take vengeance on Orsha, though her daughter was doubly incensed at the horribly cracked voice of her mother, that was the natural speech of Sislagh.
