I talked a little bit about Rata before. About how she is inspired by the squirrel that traveled back and forth, in Norse legend on Yggdrasil, between the eagle and the dragon gossiping about the other. It was thought that the squirrel represented the changing seasons as he could travel to the top of the tree and all the way to the bottom of the roots.

In ATC, Rata is a storyteller. She knows so many stories that have been passed down to her. I wonder what she will say about the creature they have encountered!
