Conservative/Superstitious

She believes Resian has a bad spirit because she is not circumcised (p.78).Yeiyo-botorr is used by the novelist to lay ground for polygamy in a Maa family. She is used to show cohesion in a traditional polygamous family.

Responsible

She introduces the other women to visitors (p.16).

Sincere

When she finds Taiyo and Resian doing house chores she genuinely praises them (p.76).
