  • She is said to have given a tapestry of herons in flight over a pond as her nameday gift.
  • In Hunted, Soama sends Abeke an elephant-hair bracelet. Abeke offers this bracelet to the hawkers in return for a house cat, who Abeke later names Kunaya. However, Meilin forces the hawkers to give the bracelet back. When Abeke is captured by Devin and Karmo, Abeke uses Soama's bracelet to tell Conor, Rollan, Meilin, and Finn that Devin is hunting Rumfuss.
  • Abeke mentioned that Karmo was the type of boy that Soama would be 'silly for'.
