Etuwa is the daughter of olo'eyktan Ka'nat and tsahìk Asahe. She was an intense, headstrong child, often running off on her own. While her father Ka’nat sometimes frowned, her mother Asahe encouraged her and covered up for her, forging a strong bond. Her mother taught her the ways of the kinglor, but also took her on adventures, teaching her how to craft and use a bow.
When the RDA returned to Pandora, Asahe tried to help the Resistance and was shot and killed during an RDA ambush. Etuwa now seeks to help the kinglor and honor her mother's memory by pushing back against the RDA. Her father Ka'nat, however, fears the complete destruction of the clan if the RDA turn their attention to them, putting Etuwa in a difficult position as a young tsahìk.
Etuwa is usually boiling with restless energy. She uses big hand gestures when speaking, constantly trying to get people on board with her vision. She speaks rather loudly for an Aranahe, but is calmer and gentler with the Kinglor.
