Xanda Qo, Princess of Sweet Lotus Vale, was a warrior woman from the Summer Isles. She was the mother of Chatana Qo, the Arrow of Jhahar.


Xanda Qo, herself being a slave for a time, ended slavery on the Summer Isles and united all the islands under her rule. She invented the famous goldenheart bows, from a wood found only on Jhala and Omboru. She also built the tall, graceful ships known as swan ships, named for their curved prows carved into the shapes of birds and beasts.[1]
