Hanu is a reddish lyonesse. She is said to have golden eyes.
Hanu is very strict and doesn't tolerate any insolence from her pupils, as shown with Uru when she teaches the foreign lyonesse how to fight.
In The Forges of DawnEdit
Hanu serves as Uru's sparring partner, likely at the command of one of Iz, one of the pride males. She teaches the red queen to read her opponents next moves by watching their eyes, namely the way the pupil contracts before an attack.
